I first stepped foot on Bentley's campus the year I was born, 1980. My dad had just been hired the year before in the Accountancy dept. We left New England for several years while my dad earned his PhD and then we returned to Massachusetts and to Bentley. I grew up with Bentley. I attended basketball camp in the summers with Barbara Stevens' famed staff and eventually enrolled as a freshman in 1998. I graduated in 2001, but came back for grad school and finished my MS in 2004. Today I am a part-time faculty member of the FI dept and my father is now Chair of Accountancy. I cannot stray far from Forest Street before missing it terribly and needing to return; and I think my dad feels the same way. I love Bentley and I love the people at Bentley. It's my idea of happiness - and family.
