Helen Smith

Director of Human Resources

Helen discovered HR as her true passion while working for a non-profit public policy institute in the Colorado Rockies. An Oregon native, she returned to the Portland area in 2013 to grow her career closer to her PNW-based family.  A strategic human resources professional with a focus on creating people-first company cultures, Helen has been in director- and executive-level HR positions since 2009. A true “people person”, she is strongly rooted in a caring, collaborative, and people-centered philosophy and wholeheartedly subscribes to the notion that if you take care of your people, your people will take care of the business.
