Tess was born and raised in Denver Colorado and has always been a dog lover as she grew up with many dogs, plus a cat in a big family household. While working at dog-daycares, Tess became a certified dog trainer where she started her own dog training business in 2012. Tess is continually learning about dog behavior and new training techniques so that she can obtain her CPDT-KA through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers in 2022.
Tess decided she wanted to be a little more rounded in the business world, so she started working at few accounting firms throughout the years. While running her own business and working as an Office Manager in accounting firms, Tess earned her Associates Degree in Business/Management as well as being certified in Principles of Accounting from Red Rocks Community College in 2020. Shortly after receiving her degree Tess became part of the team at Overland Animal Hospital in 2021 as the Office Manager.
When Tess is not playing with the dogs either from her small dog training business or from Overland Animal Hospital, she is relishing in life with her family and friends. In her spare time, Tess also enjoys dancing in her dance classes which includes Hip Hop, POUND as well as different kinds of Aerial apparatuses, along with playing in the arts with painting and pottery.
