I believe that the downtown is the core of our community and keeping the core thriving is vital to our community’s health. I want to serve our community by helping the local businesses in the downtown core area. As a past business owner, I understand the importance of the role that Red Wing Downtown Main Street plays in their mission. I want to be a part of that mission to assist in the growth of this wonderful community that I live in.

I joined Red Wing Downtown Main Street because I care about what happens to our downtown. Our downtown defines who we are and is a place where the entire community comes together to live, work, and play. Red Wing is unique in a number of ways and I want to preserve that so others may experience it.

I chose to be a part of Downtown Main Street because I want to help nurture and grow Old West Main Street - the street my office is located on - which is part of the Red Wing Downtown Main Street too. Red Wing Downtown Main Street is an excellent organization to be a part of as they are focused on the businesses and community!

I was born and raised in Red Wing and raised my four children here. I ran a licensed home daycare business for 14 years, but in 2004 I started a new career in real estate. Today I‘m a broker and co-owner of EXIT Realty Rivertown. Red Wing has seen many changes over the years, and I’m hopeful my work with Downtown Main Street will insure its growth and lead it towards a sustainable future.

The history, bluffs, and river that make up pretty Red Wing, are some of Red Wings best attributes. Tessa’s commitment to her hometown helped her pursue her dream of opening River Blu Salon DaySpa in the historic St. James Hotel.
