Marty is a Licensed Massage Therapist who came to Guide Dogs of America from Port Orchard, WA to receive her 3rd guide dog, a female yellow Labrador Retriever named “Jewel”.
When asked what made her decide to come to our school, she replied, “I’ve been very impressed with the dogs that I know from GDA and how they work. And the staff really understood what type of dog I needed.”
Marty, the mother of four, lost her vision in an industrial accident in 2002.
