Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, Tess graduated from Vassar College in 2014 and University of Virginia School of Law in 2018. At Vassar, she was a trained peer counselor for victims and survivors of interpersonal violence and represented students in Title IX proceedings. At UVA Law, Tess was a Law and Public Service Fellow, Vice President of the Domestic Violence Project, Managing Editor of the Virginia Journal of Criminal Law, and a Pro Bono Award recipient. She also represented indigent women seeking protective orders and incarcerated juveniles in Virginia courts, and mediated custodial disputes between indigent couples dealing with domestic violence. Tess is excited to help end the gun violence epidemic by seeking justice for the victims and survivors whose lives are forever changed through Brady’s affirmative litigation efforts, and to ensure accountability through Brady’s government transparency work.
