Naya was born and raised in the San Luis Valley, although she also has family rooted in Durango, Mexico. She has nine and a half years of banking experience and spent more than seven years working in consumer and commercial lending, ultimately aiding in the success of numerous small businesses in Colorado. She is passionate about small businesses and entrepreneurship because they are the heart of our communities: small businesses are what make our day to day lives, whether you are going for ice cream, having dinner, or going to the gym for a workout. Through her position as the Lending Specialist, she will provide guidance to entrepreneurs on the various funding programs, process and underwrite applications, and manage our existing portfolio of FSWCF loans. Outside of work hours, she enjoys spending time with her son, riding her motorcycle, wrapping automotive vehicles, taking long walks outside, and singing.
