One year ago Kelly Kuzminski heard about an opening in Media Resources/Edlab from a friend, and she brought exceptional service skills, a professional attitude and strong work ethic to the department. Kelly, a native of Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, will graduate with a doctorate in Physical Therapy this month.
Kelly most enjoys helping students and faculty locate educational resources to supplement classroom information. Having access to materials has helped Kelly enhance her own knowledge. She feels that the Library has something to offer everyone on campus-whether it is study rooms, books, films, research materials or food. Kelly believes that while many students utilize the Internet for research purposes, there’s nothing like good, old-fashioned books and ledgers to help make an exceptional paper or project.
Within the Physical Therapy Department Kelly is a Graduate Assistant and a student liaison. She is also involved in Seniorcise, Kidsercise and Challenger Soccer. Kelly enjoys working with the PA Physical Therapy Association’s Political Action Committee. Her hobbies include learning about military history and the American Civil War, touring historical sites, horseback riding, reading, arts and crafts and restoring old furniture. Her favorite book is Tuesdays with Morrie and her favorite movie is Forrest Gump. A surprising fact about Kelly is that she’s a Civil War buff who knows an unreasonable amount of information about the four-year conflict.
Currently Kelly is completing her clinical internships. Her career goal is to work with active duty military personnel and veterans with a focus on the rehabilitation of amputees. She also plans to become an orthopedic clinical specialist.
Thank you, Kelly. We wish you all the best!
