A volunteer for the Red Cross in Spain for the last 1 ½ years, Maria was alerted to ONCE's* need for Spanish interpreters for class 14–02 by her sister, Paloma, who is a client of Leader Dogs for the Blind.

Maria applied to be an interpreter and accompanied five clients from Spain to Leader Dog this past August.

*ONCE is the guide dog foundation in Spain
