Before joining Calvert & Company, she founded TAW Consulting Services in 2002, which helped small businesses with all their operational needs including accounting & finance, human resources, information technology, infrastructure, and administration; as well as coordinating office setups, expansions and moves. During the latter years of TAW, Tessa focused on accounting, monthly bookkeeping and payroll services. Born in Holland (but still a British citizen,) Tessa was raised in the Washington, D.C. metro area. She met Andrew in 2010 and moved to South Carolina with him in 2014 where they later married in 2016. She enjoys reading, cooking, traveling and playing golf.
