Vicki Gee Horiye is the Director of Product Marketing for the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Established in 1931, GIA is the leading source of knowledge, standards, and education in the gem and jewelry industry.
Service to the community became a significant part of her Vicki’s life by the age of 16. She was involved at the club and district levels of another service organization during high school and college, serving in roles including club president, lieutenant governor and district secretary. During her undergrad, she re-chartered the club at UCSD and she is proud that it remains active today.
The San Diego Foundation, Jackie Robinson YMCA, Francis Parker School, and the Asian Business Association Foundation are amongst the organizations she has been involved in. She is interested in joining our Senior Services Committee, Camp Enterprise and our Badge Committee. But says she will continue to “shop” the other committees because she wants to meet everyone!
Vicki is a marketer by passion having earned her MBA at SDSU. Her greatest joy is her 18-year-old son Carter, who is a freshman at Northeastern University. Her husband is Joe Horiye, a Club member for the last 20 years.
Wendy Urushima-Conn, Andrea da Rosa and Valerie Attisha were her sponsors.
