Tess joined Multisport Canada as the financial bookkeeper in 2019 but it is her passion for sports that enabled her to better understand the needs of a Sports Event Management company.

Tess graduated from McMaster University with a Bachelor of Arts in French Literature then obtained her Chartered Accountant designation. This designation along with her bilingualism, has allowed Tess to work extensively throughout Europe.  After 9 years of working for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Paris France, Tess returned to Canada and worked for 10 years as an OPP Constable investigating Proceeds of Crime.

After leaving competitive figure skating, Tess began running long distances, competing in several marathons, most notably, The Marine Corp Marathon, The Portland Marathon and the Boston Marathon where she qualified twice. Tess has competed in several of Multisport Canada triathlons over the years, including two Half Ironman events and the 70.3 series.

Apart from sports, Tess is busy with her three children who have adopted their parents’ passion for competitive sports.

Currently, Tess has developed a passion for rowing and is an active competitive rowing member of the Barrie Rowing club.
