Hey all you cool cats and kittens! My name is Tessa. I’m originally from Buffalo, NY, but I’ve lived and worked all over. Traveling is my passion and I’ve been to over 25 countries! When traveling, it’s important to me to try to minimize my environmental impact, and biking is a perfect way to do that! I love all outdoors activities like hiking, camping, kayaking, snowboarding, and of course biking! When stuck inside I like baking, playing games, reading mysteries, and watching comedies. I’ve been working with teens for a handful of years now. I worked as an environmental educator at a teen summer camp in the Adirondack Mountains throughout college. I’ve worked with sustainable agriculture and cultural exchanges with teens in California, Ecuador, and Nicaragua. (Si, hablo Espanol!) In addition to that, I’ve spent two summers leading teen adventure trips in Morocco and Costa Rica. I can’t wait to get on the road (or bike path) and make amazing memories with some adventurous teens. Can’t wait to meet you all!
