Tessa is from Christchurch in New Zealand and has recently relocated to Western Australia to play for East Perth Eagles in the NBL1 West competition. Most recently, Tessa was a contracted player and member of the leadership group for the Mainland Pouakai in the inaugural Tauihi Basketball League in New Zealand, before which she was a contracted player for the Nelson SParks in the Basketball New Zealand 3×3 Schick Cup. She played 7 seasons in the New Zealand Womens Basketball Championship and captained in 2019, and also played in the United States on a scholarship for Southern New Hampshire University. Tessa is a natural scorer especially from the 3, and is strong at scoring off screens, the dribble or a set shot. Defensively, she works hard to get tips, deflections and contain her player. She has great court vision and distribution skills.
