Becky’s involvement with MassBay began in 2017 as a volunteer on the Student Nourishment and Care Committee (SNACC, formerly the Food Insecurity Committee). She also has assisted with grant writing and research of new grants, and served as a mentor in the college’s Multicultural Mentoring Program.

After graduating from University of Massachusetts Amherst, Becky worked for the accounting firm, Arthur Andersen, for 10 years. She then served as Chief Financial Officer at three small, privately held firms in the Boston area — GeoPartners Research Inc, Trilogy Inc. and Parents In a Pinch.

Becky has lived in Wellesley for over twenty years and has been an active leader within the community. She served as Treasurer of Wellesley A Better Chance (ABC), Friends of Wellesley METCO, Inc. and the Wellesley High School Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO), all local, education-focused, non-profit organizations. As a committed volunteer, Becky has supported the METCO program - in the areas of community building, academic achievement, mentoring and college preparation.

She currently is on the Board of Hoops and Homework Inc., a Framingham, neighborhood-based after school and summer program that provides academic and enrichment to students ages 5-14. Hoops and Homework is the only neighborhood-based and licensed after-school and summer program in Framingham. She also volunteers with Freshman Fresh Start, an organization that provides essential dorm and school supplies to economically disadvantaged incoming college freshmen, helping to lessen family financial burdens and ease the transition to campus life.
