Our Growing Staff
Things have been very busy here at Akiptan the last month and we've been making some big changes. Our biggest news is that we hired our first Loan Officer, Melissa Swan. She's been catching on very quickly and has been a great addition to our office. Meet her in her biography below.
Melissa Swan is an enrolled tribal member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. She was raised in a small native community within the reservation boundaries where she is now raising two children of her own. Melissa started her professional career in the financial industry in 2011 working for a private lender and then moving forward to becoming the first in her family to attend college. She is currently attending Saint Paul College and majoring in Business Finance. She has a true passion for working in the financial services field and providing assistance to help Native Communities. Melissa is very enthusiastic about helping Native American’s become successful in agriculture once again!
