Hello Solis Park! My name is Arezu Forghani. I’ve been a resident of Irvine for over 15 years. My daughter will be attending Solis Park as a kindergartener this Fall and I am so delighted and proud to be involved in this community. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a degree in Business Administration in 2005, and obtained my Executive MBA from Chapman University in 2010. I’ve been in sales and business development for the majority of my career so being able to identify, obtain, and sustain business growth is a true passion of mine. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, playing tennis, dining at new and fun restaurants, traveling, and spending time with my husband, 5 year old daughter, and 2 year old son. I’m so excited to be a part of Solis Park’s PTSA Board, and even more excited to help this wonderful organization grow for our children!
