Alumni Committee Member, Past Co-Chair
Zuly earned a BA in psychology from California State University, Northridge. Inspired by the help she received at El Nido, Zuly went on to earn her Master’s degree in social work (MSW) at CSUN in 2014 and currently works for a foster care agency. She also volunteers for El Nido and was a founding member of the El Nido Alumni Association.
Zuly is the proud mother of a 20-year-old daughter majoring in psychology at CSUN, and an 11-year-old son who is in an advanced studies program at a local middle school. Her children have grown up inspired by their mother’s strong work ethic, integrity, and commitment to breaking unhealthy cycles.
“Creating a stable life for my children has been my life’s ambition. I am proud that my daughter and son are excelling in school and are very well adjusted.” Believing in the virtuous cycle of giving, she adds, “I hope to pass on to my children the importance of believing in themselves, the power within them, and the importance of gratitude and giving back to our community.”
