  2. What a well deserved portrait of Marie. In this age of machine-assisted answering services, it’s always wonderful to have a human voice to book my conference lines. Hope you stick with us into the future, Marie. You’re the best!

  3. Marie is a true treasure to the University and it is wonderful to read her story! So glad to see her recognized for the contribution she makes with her extensive knowledge and the personal touch she brings to this important role at the “front door” to BU . Oh, and did we mention she is also a fabulous cook? All the best to you Marie! Well deserved!

  4. Thank you for this great story –it takes so many different, wonderful people to make BU as great as it is, and Marie seems like a dedicated, kind, and compassionate person–the kind of person one hopes to find at our university. I’ve never met Marie, but I want to after reading this! It’s the people that make a place, and I’m glad she’s here!
