Tesia learned about archives while receiving her BA in history and became fascinated by the role archivists play in actively preserving history and making it accessible. After an internship with Taylor University’s archives, where she helped with research projects celebrating the school’s 175th anniversary, Tesia knew she wanted to be an archivist. Subsequently, she pursued and earned an MA in museum studies from Baylor University. Before joining History Factory, Tesia had the opportunity to work with two other academic archives, where she processed and digitized materials.

“Helping companies learn more about the people and ideas that have made them great is what excites me most. Every day we make a new discovery!”

Outside of the office, Tesia can be found building Lego sets, watching TV shows from the ’70s and ’80s, or learning a new language on Duolingo.
