Maria Forte is currently employed as the Deputy Director/Museum Curator for the JFK Special Warfare Museum in Fort Bragg, NC. She still flirts with theater through volunteering for local productions working technical aspects and performing in minor roles. Her theater technical skill set comes in handy while helping the exhibit specialist build exhibit components. Her acting/public speaking skill sets are useful while assisting with VIP tours, public interaction and doing briefings.
Forte has been working in the museum field full time since 1998 and has had part-time volunteer and extra work as running crew for various theaters in North Carolina, Virginia, Texas and Illinois from 1996 to present date.
