Nia Terry-Childs

Division Manager, Atlanta

Nia Terry-Childs is a native of Atlanta, Georgia, graduating from Benjamin E. Mays High School and earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia.

Nia’s career has always centered around customer service, first as an intern at Bloomingdales in New York City and then in a management training program with Neiman Marcus in Atlanta. There, Nia’s customer service and management skills were refined, and she was quickly promoted to department manager, making her the youngest manager in the store. After several years, Nia moved to Saks Fifth Avenue as the assistant Fashion Director where her love of fashion and events evolved, providing her an opportunity to plan and manage several high-end designer events. This would open the door to Nia starting her own event design company, Nia Terry Events, where she planned weddings and corporate events.

A chance opportunity from one of Nia’s clients brought her to CMA, as an on-site Condo manager. After several years, she moved to portfolio management where she continued to develop her customer service and management skills, building relationships with her boards, communities, and vendors. After managing associations for more than 15 years, Nia is currently serving as a portfolio division manager, where she utilizes her skills in customer service and community association management to help other managers thrive.

Nia is a member of Community Associations Institute (CAI) and is dedicated to continuing her education in association management.

Outside of the office, Nia enjoys traveling and spending time with her family. She has a love for wellness and finds delight in yoga, meditation, and long walks along many of Atlanta’s trails.
