Get To Know Tess
What is a quote that resonates with you?
"It is in collectivities that we find reservoirs of hope and optimism." – Angela Davis
If you had to give a ten minute presentation on anything right now, what would you talk about?
I worked as a catering cook for a long time, so I could easily talk about the logistics of a catered event: types of catering styles, food prep, serving sizes, common mistakes, etc.
What is something unrelated to your job that you love doing?
Backpacking! I love multi-day section hikes on the Appalachian Trail.
What are your favorite pizza toppings?
Pineapple and jalapeno.
What is an easy way to do something nice for someone?
When you make a new friend or acquaintance, write down their likes and dislikes. I use the Notes app on my phone to quickly make note of food preferences, favorite bands/books/shows, or other things they show interest in. If I'm ever making a birthday cake or want to purchase a gift, I already have a running list of ideas to work off of.
