Kelly Forst ’13 LAS, from Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J., is the Scholarly Outreach team’s graduate assistant for this academic year. Forst earned her bachelor’s degree in communication with a business minor from Villanova in 2013. She is enrolled in the graduate communication program and expects to graduate in May 2014 with a Master of Arts degree and a certificate in mediated communication.
Forst began working as a graduate assistant in August, reporting to Library Events and Program Coordinator Regina (Gina) Duffy, but has also worked as a tutor in the Writing Center during her junior and senior years, so she has worked in Falvey for three years.
“After graduation, I hope to gain experience in integrated marketing communication by working in a digital media agency. There’s so much about the communication field I enjoy, so working at an integrated agency will allow me to do a bit of everything, from public relations to social media, market research and strategic media planning. I’m also tossing around the idea of going back to school down the road to earn a PhD in new media studies and communication,” she says.
As the Scholarly Outreach team’s graduate assistant, Forst helps coordinate and manage events in the Library. She is responsible for organizing the undergraduate student workers, maintaining procedure manuals and documents, assisting in communication promotions as needed, writing and editing communication materials and reporting event statistics.
Her hobbies are music (playing the piano and the trumpet), volleyball, travelling, cooking, baking, reading dystopian novels and staying active.
