Maria has been a Bark ATL pack leader for 2 years but has over 20 years of experience caring for dogs. Like many of our Bark ATL staff, Maria has adopted and rescued many dogs over the years (we won't say how many are sharing her home at this time but you'd need more than the fingers on one hand to count). Maria was born in Brazil, went to college in Sweden, speaks Portuguese, Spanish, and English, and, naturally, loves to travel! A huge John Wayne fan, her non-dog related hobbies include watching movies and going to the Opera. Thanks, Maria, for all you do for the Bark ATL pack!
