Hello. Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Tess (short for Theresa) and I'm a Website Designer based in United States Midwest. I love working with small businesses and individuals to build websites that uplift their brand and their mission.
I have a rich background with diverse experiences and I'm lucky I get to design my life around what I love to do: be creative and help others.
I wear a couple of hats: Social Worker and Designer. My background is working with children and communities, but my passion for pursing a career as a creative has always been a part of who I am. After I got my Master's in Social Work, I decided go back and get a degree in Graphic Design.
My journey into website design started when an acquaintance asked, "Do you think you could design a website for me?" She was a small business owner. Thrilled and fresh out of design school I replied, "Sure! I can try." And the rest is history.
This journey took off by doing work for people I know and referrals. I'm learning a lot and have a lot to learn and have loved every minute of this journey. I love working for myself!
I live with my husband and two dogs.When I'm not working, I enjoy traveling and lately, tackling simple and easy DIY projects around the house. I'm obsessed with audiobooks and true crime podcasts; a proud Canadian; a super fan of The Office TV show; and love baking bread. I also believe wearing a bold, red lipstick can add a real pep to your day!
I'm a devoted meditator and relish movement--learning new dance choreography, practicing Yoga, and Pilates bring me joy and make me feel strong and empowered.
