Tessa loves the creative and technical elements of design. As a metalsmith and jewelry designer, Tessa relishes “that” feeling; the one where she creates something unique, shaped by her own hand, patiently and deliberately. But then Tessa became a business owner and soon discovered something else. Surprisingly, the administrative side of the design business could be a “creative” challenge as well. Combining her design instincts and attention to detail, Tessa became the ultimate problem solver and is now sharing those talents with Dreyfuss + Blackford.
As a Sacramento native, Tessa grew up knowing about D+B’s designs. To this day, she appreciates how the buildings, new and old, impact the landscape and culture of the Capital City. Tessa chose to work at the firm because she gets to use her broad skillset to keep the office organized while spending every day among other creatives who pour their hearts into their designs…just like she does.
