"While working as a social worker in Boston, Maria Vertkin found a new calling: helping homeless, often immigrant women, learn to become medical interpreters. Vertkin, 31 is the founder and executive director of the nonprofit Found in Translation, a Cambridge organization that has helped nearly 200 women receive certification to work as interpreters in the critical settings--hospitals and medical clinics. Named one of Forbes' "30 under 30" social entrepreneurs to watch, she spoke with the Globe about her own immigrant experience and why the program works." - Boston Globe
