She is involved with capital development projects at the New Orleans International Airport, management oversight at the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority, feasibility studies for the gaming industry, neighborhood impact assessments, and GIS mapping. Her professional interests are mainly in transit, adaptive re-use, and progressive urban planning.

Ms. Duran attended New York University and focused her coursework on land-use, planning and development. During her time at NYU she worked for the New York City Department of Transportation in the planning division through her participation in Mayor Michael Bloomberg's internship program. Ms. Duran then worked for the New York State Department of Transportation where she interned for the regional metropolitan planning organization (NYMTC) with notable projects in transit mode analysis and documenting the reduction of transportation-based pollutants as mandated by the federal government. She graduated from NYU in 2006 and pursued a career in the private sector with a real estate development company managing construction projects in New York City. During this time she helped complete the first development under the city's Inclusionary Housing Program in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

In January 2010, Ms. Duran attained a master's degree in Preservation Studies from the Tulane School of Architecture. While at Tulane she was active in post-Katrina redevelopment efforts by documenting historic buildings at the Jackson Barracks National Guard facility and developing a preservation-based redevelopment plan for historic neighborhoods.
