Before her job at the community college district, Pulido, a native of East Palo Alto, handled communications for the Sequoia Union High School District.
"Having deep roots in San Mateo County, I am truly honored to have the opportunity to serve as Peninsula Health Care District's next chief executive officer," Pulido said in a statement. "I would like to thank the board of directors for their trust in my leadership."
