Kelly Forster

Executive Assistant

Kelly loves to keep things well ordered. As TurningWest’s Executive Assistant, she keeps the TurningWest Team organized and on track. She is methodical, efficient, detailed oriented, and does all this with a delightful personal grace that makes details less of a chore.

She systematically tracks the myriad of details the TurningWest Team handles on behalf of clients. She cares for our clients in a graceful, efficient, coordinated, and productive manner. She prepares well-researched and accurate documents; manages our busy calendars; and efficiently handles daily office tasks. Kelly is highly focused and results-oriented in supporting complex, deadline-driven projects and is able to identify goals/priorities and resolve issues in their initial stages before they become larger problems.

Before coming to TurningWest, Kelly worked for the past 10+ years in administration with public charter schools throughout Southern California. She has excelled at handling challenges and enjoyed improved processes. She directly worked with Principals, Vice Principals, and school districts to coordinate summer school programs. Her excellent problem solving skills made her a leader in streamlining processes in all the nearby schools in the district.

Kelly graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management from Cal State Polytechnic University in Pomona. She regularly attends trainings to further advance her skills. Combined with her degree and her temperament she brings a warm and delightful personality to TurningWest.

When not working, Kelly enjoys spending time with her family and friends, boating, and remodeling projects. Kelly has been married to Mark for 16 years and has two kids, Mikayla and Jacob.
