Tessa was born and raised in Germany, living there until the age of 10 when she moved to Costa Rica for two years before coming to the United States in 2007. Since then she has been on a journey of discovering God's plan for her life. As part of that journey, Tessa began serving with Sanctuary, our young adult ministry, as a volunteer helping to design sermon graphics. She now serves on our staff as our lead graphic designer and ministry assistant for Sanctuary in addition to pursuing a Computer Science/English double major at Mount Holyoke College in MA. Tessa loves serving by creating graphics and visuals that draw people closer to God, whether creating sermon graphics or running our Instagram. When not designing or getting excited about new fonts, she enjoys the outdoors, reading and finding the next best sushi restaurant.
