Director of Marketing & Partnerships
Normality is a paved road. It's comfortable to walk on but no flowers grow on it.

Tessa is a part of efelle's Digital Strategist team. She helps scope projects and strategize marketing tactics that will best work for our clients. She loves to learn about every part of the web design and development process, and you can regularly find her asking questions to developers, account managers, and designers in order to learn more and improve her own approach to each unique project.
Tessa grew up popping popcorn at her family's gourmet popcorn store in Rochester, Minnesota. Due to her unhealthy love of butter, she decided it was best to move far away from home for college; she attended Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana, where she rooted for the Packers and Minnesota Wild from afar. There, she also pursued degrees in Business Marketing and Management while minoring in Entrepreneurship and Religious Studies.
Tessa enjoys all that the outdoors have to offer; she likes fishing, hiking, playing ultimate Frisbee, biking, and skiing. After trying to impress fellow ultimate Frisbee player Riley multiple times, she finally won him over and they married shortly after graduation. Soon after that, they moved to Seattle to begin their life together.
Tessa can often be found hiking or camping on the weekends and baking on weeknights. She also enjoys petting all the dogs and visiting the sea otters at the Seattle Aquarium.
Tessa is skilled at baking, talking, and doing Minnesota accents.
Tessa will most likely be wearing Birkenstocks at any time of year you see her and she's spilled tea on not one but two computers now.
