Kolter Homes is excited to announce that Chelsea Smith is the new Lifestyle Director at Cresswind Georgia at Twin Lakes. Smith’s extensive experience in event management and passion for fostering community engagement makes her a tremendous asset to the community.
“Chelsea leads exceptional programming for the community’s active adult homeowners, focusing on Cresswind’s Set Yourself FREE pillars of Fitness, Relationships, Education and Entertainment,” said Mark LaClaire, Director of Lifestyle for Kolter Homes. “We have already experienced her creativity and passion for programming in the short time she has been with us.”
As a part of the First Service Residential team, Smith develops innovative social programs and engaging events to enhance the Cresswind community experience. Her recent successes include the three-day grand opening of Club Cresswind, complete with a catered event, live music, a club showcase, and a watch party for the big game.
Smith states, “I was attracted to Cresswind for its strong sense of community. I have always bonded with people, and I like making them happy. This has been a fun transition because all the residents are eager to get involved.”
Residents enjoy monthly events, including big band parties featuring the Everly Brothers Tribute Band and trivia events that are so popular that they always sell out. Smith also works with neighbors and resident-led clubs that include the crafting club, cooking club, Rummikub club, painting club, pickleball and others. Residents with common interests are encouraged to form new clubs to explore their interests. “These resident-led clubs are great ways to explore an interest and make new friends. And I love that residents take the ball and run with it. I’m just here to answer their questions and facilitate,” comments Smith.
Smith’s favorite part of the job is getting to know the people and organizing events. “Best of all, I always look forward to waking up and going to work.”
Before joining Cresswind Georgia at Twin Lakes, Smith worked as a Cruise Director for American Cruise Lines, overseeing entertainment and excursions. She holds a BA in History and American Studies from Rider University, a Master’s in Education from Drexel University, and a TESL certification. Smith is a resident of Gainesville, Georgia.
