Yani RodriguezEntrepreneur Success Coordinator

I am originally from Chihuahua, Mexico. I moved to Durango, CO when I was 7 years old. I attended school in the Durango School District 9-R and graduated from Durango High School in 2014. After high school, I had an opportunity to work for a local bank as a teller, and after two years moved over to the mortgage department. The local bank was bought out by another bank, and I decided to make the move to the last locally-owned bank here in Durango, First SouthWest Bank. I started as a Loan Assistant in Commercial Lending in May 2019 and assisted in tellering as needed. I am a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program recipient and have had the opportunity to work and attend school. In becoming a DACA recipient, I have gained knowledge in this area and have been able to help others in the community. Aside from working and helping the Latin community, I love to go camping, spend time at the lake on sunny days and work on getting my Bernedoodle’s certification to become a service dog.
