Women to Women and Mujeres Latinas - Multicultural Bridge

Vonetta Smith

Berkshire County

Veronica Johnston is a recent immigrant who through her training as an educator, interpreter and community health worker at the Multicultural BRIDGE has immediately turned these new skills into a career as an entrepreneur and certified bilingual daycare provider where she not only gets to realize her gift with young children, but inspires them to learn Spanish through song, exercise, dance and fun! She is also credited with building stronger and more consistent attendance of the women of the Mujeres Latinas group, women in most need of support in the Southern Berkshire community.
