Silvia Solorzano


My name is Silvia Solorzano, and I am an MBA student at San Jose State University. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the program, which is why I decided to run for President of the Graduate Business Student Association. I was extremely honored to be elected President of the GBSA, and I hope the GBSA helps my fellow students achieve academic and professional success.

Before becoming a student at San Jose State University, I received my undergraduate degree from San Francisco State University in English Literature with a minor in Communication studies. My diverse academic background has helped me approach my business degree with inquisitiveness.

I work at Stanford University as the Administrative Lead and Postdoctoral Scholar Administrator in the Division of Hematology. In addition to that, I am the Chair of the engagement subcommittee at Stanford Medicine's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee.

In my free time, I love to sing, write, read and run. My favorite emoji is the star emoji ⭐ .

Kind regards.

Sharon Trinh

Vice President of Finance

Hi, my name is Sharon Trinh! I was born and raised in the Bay Area, living in San Jose, basically my whole life. I graduated in economics and management, and now I'm currently a first year as a full-time ECMBA student at SJSU. As far as what I plan to do after graduating, that's something I am still figuring out! A little random fact about me, I have a small love for astrology. Also, my most commonly used emojis alternate between 
😀️ and😩️ .

Raymond Harbert

Vice President of Marketing and Alumni Relations

How's it going? My name is Raymond Harbert by way of Waxahachie, Tx. Before San Jose, I grew up in the Greenspoint area of Houston, Tx. I hold a bachelor's degree in Mass Communication from TAMUCC and have worked towards an M.A. at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Design Management. Currently, I enjoy brand marketing, graphic design, customer retention strategy, random interactions, and apparently, data.

After spending nearly a decade working in the education and theme park industry for multimillion-dollar brands in Orlando, Fl, and Houston, Tx, I recognize what honestly drives conversions, sold-out events, and creates human engagement. Over time I have concluded that it's not mastering the situation, but the individual person. It's how you connect to the heart-beating inside the person versus what you're impressions indicate.

In the meantime, I am a full-time employee of SJSU, an avid marathon runner, frontyard boxer, rap music enthuist, and anime lover. After completing my MBA, I plan to transition to communicative and recruiting roles for companies such as Adobe, Google, LHM, Linkedin, or any company that offers a good cup of coffee, conversation, and free travel.

My favorote emojis are the 😈 , 🧐 , and 🤷🏿‍♂️ .

LisaMarie Mejia

Early Career MBA Representative (Year One)

Hello my name is LisaMarie, and I am a part of the Early Career MBA program. I started the Master’s program at SJSU Fall of 2020. I was born and raised in San Jose, CA, and currently reside in Willow Glen. I work for Stanford University with the Department of Medicine as an Administrative Associate. I enjoy working for an institution like Stanford because I see endless possibilities as to what I can do there in the future. I currently have extensive project management, financial management, event planning, and other administrative duties.

When I complete my MBA, I plan to continue working and growing at Stanford. Ultimately, I would like a project manager or division manager role. The future is not promised, so I am also open to other opportunities that may present themselves along the way. One exciting thing or fun fact about me is that I am an only child, and I also love to cook!

I look forward to growing in this program and connecting with all of you! My favorite emoji: 🤪
