Would a better translation of  "Maria è venuta a trovarmi al lavoro" be "Maria came to find me at work?" or is vedere and trovare interchangeable?

Hi daytripper90,

Yes, in a few cases vedere and trovare are used to convey the same message.
Ti vedo bene / Ti trovo bene = you look good [I see you good / I find you good]
In your example, you could as well say Maria è venuta a vedermi al lavoro.

Hope this helps!
