The Lake Wentworth Foundation has chosen Dorothy Anne Feldmann, longtime summer resident and weekend visitor on Lake Wentworth, as the new volunteer treasurer for the organization.
The Foundation’s Governance and Nominating committee considered her “very well qualified”. Those qualifications include over 20 years as an Accounting professor, five years as Chair of the Accountancy department, and currently serving as the Associate Dean of business programs, all at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts.
Before entering academia, Feldmann earned a CPA certificate and worked as an auditor in the Boston office of KPMG. Her educational background includes a bachelor’s in Biology from the University of Virginia, a master’s in Accountancy from Northeastern and a doctorate in Accounting awarded by Boston University.
Jack O’Connell, President of the Foundation, explains what Feldmann can contribute to the organization: “Dorothy brings a strong financial background to the Foundation which is very timely in helping us keep track of the growing number of important projects we have undertaken to protect the water quality of Wolfeboro’s lakes.”
Feldmann knows the area well as she has been a resident, first at Point Breeze starting in 1998, and currently as a homeowner at Governors Landing. She grew up on a lake in Rhode Island and says “kayaking, watching wildlife, and reading are three of my favorite lakeside activities”.
Feldmann has already assumed the duties of treasurer.
