My name is Tessa and welcome to my little corner of the interwebs. It's nice to have you!
I love a good adventure, and man, have my short 29 years been jam packed with them! Originally from Columbus, Ohio I moved to Bloomington, Indiana right after high school to pursue a degree in Journalism at Indiana University. After graduating, I started my own freelance writing business covering everything health and fitness (with an emphasis on women's health) and was a personal trainer at a local gym. My passion for fitness lead me to Boston where I served as the wellness editor at Boston Magazine for three years.
Then, the pandemic happened. After being laid off from what felt like a dream job I tried a whole bunch of things. I served seafood at a beachside restaurant, landscaped for some pretty amazing properties across the Commonwealth, and even started my own online bakery business called TT's Sweets! The wanderlust struck again though and I decided to pack up my car and my pup Hal and I headed out to Colorado to follow another dream of living and working on a ranch. We landed in Steamboat Springs, Colorado where I learned how to drive tractors, operate heavy machinery, take care of over 400 bison, and lead ATV and snowmobile adventure tours. They never said following your dreams would be easy, it sure is hard, but oh how thankful I am for the opportunities.
Currently, I am located in Northwest Colorado dipping my toes back into freelance writing. I write, edit, optimize posts and websites for SEO, and love to tell a good story. If you've got one, I'd love to hear!
