Roni Eng

A Bentley alumna, Roni Eng, joined Bentley University's staff in 2006. Over the years, Roni has served in multiple roles on campus primarily in technical support. Currently, she is a Database Report Writer II for Advancement Services.

 

In her spare time, she’s an adventure seeking enthusiast and enjoys whitewater rafting, rock climbing, skiing, mud races, and even the occasional jumping out of a perfectly good plane. When not chasing after an adventure, you may find her playing in other sports such as Inner Tube Water Polo, relaxing to yoga, or participating in various events throughout campus.

Laurie Fontaine

 

lfontaine@bentley.edu

Laurie Fontaine joined Bentley as Director of Benefits in November of 2010. Her education (Boston College, University of Chicago and a Benefits Specialist designation) gives her the technical skills for the financial and regulatory aspects of benefits design and administration.  However, her lifetime of outdoor adventure gives her the passion for wellness initiatives, group events and a little friendly competition. 

 

Laurie is a lifelong water and snow skier: her first equipment included wooden skis, cable bindings and leather boots!  She is also an avid mountain biker and has survived some difficult rides in CO, UT, OR as well as throughout New England.  Last year Laurie took to the road and completed her first century to benefit the American Cancer Society.  She also enjoys travel, meeting people and new adventures. 

Henrietta Genfi


hgenfi@bentley.edu

Henrietta Genfi began working at Bentley in 2006, after completing her Master’s Degree at the University of Pennsylvania. Henrietta originally planned to work as a school counselor at an elementary school, but realized she wanted to work with college students after interning as an advisor while in graduate school. Henrietta enjoys helping students figure out how to coordinate all of the academic opportunities available to them at Bentley, and working closely with students who are struggling academically.  Her dedication to students and academic advising was publicly acknowledged when she was chosen by the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) for an Excellence in Academic Advising Award in the New England region.  Last year (2011) she won Bentley University’s Staff Member of the year.  In 2011, she was promoted to Assistant Director of the Advising Center.

 

In her free time, Henrietta enjoys reading, watching movies, avoiding exercise, and eating. Henrietta is also interested in American Sign Language (ASL) and has worked as an ASL tutor in the past.
