Landis Valley Museum is pleased to welcome Veronica Santiago Padilla to our interpretive staff.

The expression, "it is a small world" certainly applies here. While looking for educational opportunities abroad she just happened upon LVM's website and the "rest is history"! She will be with us for six weeks as a volunteer!

Veronica is from Oaxaca, Mexico and is a student at the Universidad de las Americas in Puebla, Mexico, where she is majoring in International Relations.
Veronica has jumped right in to the program here and has already translated our site brochure into Spanish. As she is also fluent in French, she updated our French version as well.

You might find her interpreting in the Brothers' House or the Country Store. We are grateful for her upbeat personality, her desire to learn, and her openness and flexibility.
Last night, July 16, Veronica appeared on the local cable news program. You can view this on you tube here.
