Hey there Moms and Dads! My name is Zulema Gomez and I am your San Marcos-Vista Macaroni Kid Publisher. I am a guest on traditional, unceded Luiseño/Payómkawichum land. I am the mother of one crazy and amazing 9 yr old boy. My husband of 16 years and I have also had the privilege of raising my younger brother who is now in college. Parenting these two boys has been among my life's greatest challenges and pleasures. We are a pretty nerdy bunch as you will soon find out and we play as hard as we work. I am ALL about family fun and community. I work for a national non-profit (National Parent Leadership Institute) that trains and supports parent leaders in their advocacy work across the country and I am also the publisher and editor of this great Macaroni Kid site! We have lived in Vista for three years now and moved down from Stockton, CA. We love our new community and I am so excited to share all the family-friendly events and activities right here in North County!
