Zayda Garcia, Foundation Manager

Zayda L. Garcia grew up in Alhambra CA. She was born in Mexicali Baja California, Mexico and immigrated to the United States at the young age of 11 years old. For nearly two decades she has established herself as a diverse professional with the ability to work effectively using her professional and educational training in psychology and not-for-profit fields. She has most recently served as Chief Operations Officer for Kids In Sports in Los Angeles and is now serving as Foundation Manager of The Rudolph J. and Daphne A. Munzer Foundation in Long Beach CA, proudly serving as the foundation’s first employee. During her eleven year tenure as founding Executive Director with El Viento Foundation in Huntington Beach CA, she developed an educational college pipeline program for “at-risk” youth that remains in place today. Her vision that the organization should include a blend of life skills, afterschool academic assistance, and an educational program for the parents of the “at-risk” youth the organization served, enabled the organization to create educational partnerships and effectuate impactful changes within the under-served community of Oak View in Huntington Beach and become a well-known and respected organization in Orange County. Zayda has served on non-profit boards primarily focusing on at risk youth and community rebuilding efforts and partnerships. She enjoys hiking, wine, traveling, and loves living in Long Beach.

Zayda has a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from California State University Long Beach.
