Heather Smith, CMCA
Community Association Manager
Heather Smith joined the Warren Management team in October 2013 after relocating to Colorado Springs from Orange County, California. Upon obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Child & Adolescent Development from California State University in Fullerton, Heather’s career began as a third-grade teacher. In 2010, she transitioned careers to the community management field.
Heather began working with community associations as an Associate at Keystone Pacific Property Management in Irvine, California. It is no surprise that she was promoted to community manager a short time later, working primarily on the New Development team to revitalize abandoned projects after the 2008 recession.
Heather was a licensed community association manager in California; however, upon relocating to Colorado Springs and joining the Warren Management team as a portfolio manager, she began pursuing management credentials through Community Associations Institute (CAI). She obtained the “Certified Manager of Community Associations” (CMCA®) designation in June 2014 through CAM-ICB, and the “Association Management Specialist” (AMS®) designation in 2015 through CAI. Heather is destined to accomplish much in a career that she serves so passionately.
Heather has grown quickly in her experience as a manager. She enjoys working with Associations that need help to get “redirected” on a path of adequate funding, resolving costly challenges along the journey. Heather is gifted in working with various personalities, developing leaders among the Board members, and is motivated to create a relationship of trust and partnership. She serves as a portfolio manager on the WMG team.
Heather has two wonderful daughters who are the light of her life and wind beneath her wings. Heather loves people and loves to make them feel welcomed around her.
