About Gabriella Duran

What brought you to work at Presidio? 

After graduating from college, I was unsure what aspects of business interested me. Presidio appealed to me because of my ability to wear so many different hats while a work. I love the fact that I am able to explore all aspects of a small business such as digital marketing, customer service, human resources, and much more.

What’s the most fun thing about your position so far?

I have enjoyed working with such a supportive group of individuals. Presidio truly has a culture that supports growth and learning. This workspace has allowed me to implement new project ideas and watch them develop.

Do you have any hobbies that occupy your time outside of work?

Outside of the office, I play on slow-pitch softball and recreational soccer teams. I enjoy taking at least one new workout class a week whether its yoga, barre, or strength training. As well as consistent weight lifting at the gym. I am also a dogmom to a 2 year old Shiba Inu named Bella. We love to spend time outdoors, exploring the mountains, beaches, and shopping centers.

If you could have a Starbucks drink named after you, what would be in it?

My Starbucks drink would have to be the perfect blend of both tea and coffee that creates the maximum caffeine intake.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in life?

I have learned that everything in life happens for a reason. While it may be difficult to understand in the moment, there is a lesson behind each situation that will benefit you in the future. All the obstacles that come in your way will help you to grow and develop into the person you’re meant to be.
