Willy miraculously came into our lives in 2013. Sadly, he failed out the Guides Dogs for the Blind program, and Scott was lucky enough to get a late night call asking if he would take him. After a 15 second conversation with his wife Susan, Scot I was on a plane to Oakland two days later. He and Willy bonded instantly drove back from San Rafael. Willy proudly serves the roles of equipment test subject and was promoted to "leader of the welcoming committee" as he always helps evoke the most natural expressions from our clients. He has won "employee of the month" nearly every month since then. Please look through the website.

All the best,
