Kristen Smith, CAC
Director of Operations
Kristen joined the United Recovery Project team in August of 2016 as Case Manager and shortly thereafter, earned the title of Director of Operations. She began her journey to recovery in 2006 when she came from New Jersey to South Florida for treatment. Her passion for helping others began when she was given the opportunity to run a sober living home for women in 2007, in which she did passionately for 6 years. In 2009 she began working as a Behavioral Health Technician and quickly became a Supervisor. In 2011, Kristen became a Case Manager where she used her drive to help others by assisting clients with their legal, employment, and aftercare needs so that they could focus on getting the most of their treatment while not worrying about these things. She is an active member of the Recovery Community in Broward County and sits proudly on the committee for Broward National Recovery Month. In 2016 she received the award for “Recovery Person of the Year,” an honor she treasures dearly. She has traveled to Washington D.C. for the Unite to Face Addiction Rally to advocate for more resources and bring about awareness to the problem of addiction that plagues our nation.
