Yesenia Celestino

Board Member

Joined Ventures in 2019.

Yesenia joined Ventures because she strongly believes in helping individuals achieve success through entrepreneurship. As a small business owner at a young age, she went through many struggles herself to achieve success, and she is now devoted to support organizations that provide this level of support.

Yesenia is graduate of the University of Washington with a degree in Business Administration. With over 15 years of experience in business development, Yesenia is dedicated to helping her clients have a mature understanding of wealth and prosperity through homeownership. Her goal is to provide the highest level of service while helping her clients meet their personal finance goals.

Yesenia was born in Colima, Mexico and raised in Eastern Washington. Her first job was in the orchards at age 13. Waking up at 4:00 am to work under 100+ °F weather gave her a rude awakening and she quickly realized that she needed to run the extra mile to get further in life. At age 15, she helped her mom and sister start a business, which later helped finance her college degree. At age 22, she started her own business though failed in the first attempt. It was not until a year later when she launched a different concept that was successful. Thirteen years later, her business is still successfully operating.

Her 15 years of business development skills will play a major role as a board member because she understands the challenges that small business owners endure when starting the process, through the first few years, and even after the business owner becomes a silent partner.
