Previously, Zuleima worked as the Programs Manager at the National Alliance on Mental Illness California office where she worked to engage and mobilize diverse populations across California to break stigma surrounding mental health and become advocates and teachers for their families and their local communities.
In addition to her professional work, Zuleima is a dedicated community servant.
