Welcome to the SOMOS Team!
It's an exciting time at SOMOS Mayfair as our team grows and our programs evolve. Huge shout-out to Zelica, our new Associate Director, and a warm welcome to Saul and Nayeli, who are joining our team as Director of Programs and Mayfair Coordinator, respectively.
With nearly 15 years of experience in the non-profit field as an organizer, advocate, and community builder, Zelica Rodriguez-Deams has expanded SOMOS' reach by designing powerful program strategies and sharing our model with strategic partners.
Her personal missions is to strive, fight, advocate, and organize for a world where everyone has access to everything.
Saul Ramos brings over 10 years of work experience to the SOMOS team. He’s held positions at a foundation, school district, and non-profit organization. Saul was the Senior Program Manager at SOMOS for 3 years, and now returns to lead our program team, after two years as the Supervisor of Operations for Migrant and Seasonal Head Start. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree from UC Berkeley.
Nayeli Sedano was first introduced to SOMOS when she started attending the FIRST 5 parenting workshops, and quickly became interested in how the facilitators bridged relationships between individuals and the community as a whole. After attending more programs, she soon became a Facilitator herself through our Promotores program and shared resources with those around her. We're proud to have her now join our staff as a Coordinator, and can't wait to see how she helps this pipeline grow for other local leaders.
