Tesia graduated from Ball State University with a bachelor's degree in Social Work and a minor in Interpersonal Relations in 2013. She was introduced to Project Home Indy as an intern, and became an official member of the team in August 2012. Tesia coordinates the Independent Living Skills program and the Aftercare Program.
Tesia strongly supports the mission and vision of PHI because she believes that these girls may have had a short setback but that doesn’t mean they are failures. As long as one person believes in them, they too can find faith in themselves to graduate high school, find jobs, become independent, and succeed in being role models and providers to their children.
