Tess joined our Inside Sales team in 2016. She was promoted to Business Development Representative in January 2024 focused on identifying and cultivating leads and executing key supplier initiatives.
She has been in the food industry since getting her Bachelor’s degree in Food Science at The Ohio State University in 2010. She has experience with both quality management in manufacturing, and product development.
While Tess has worked in a couple different environments, her favorite aspect of both has always been the customer interaction. Tess’s knowledge helps her answer technical questions of the customer, while getting them a solution to their problem timely, and effectively. She has specific experience in beverage development, stabilizer systems, high acid canning, and aseptic processing.
Outside of work, Tess is a fitness addict. She’s an athlete in the sport of CrossFit and Olympic lifting. She also has a dog named Brutus, after the mascot of her favorite sports team, the Buckeyes.
