After graduating from Clovis High School in 2005, Tess gathered experience in the industry and acquired her Life Insurance License prior to joining the Thiesen Dueker Group in 2008. Tess has continued to study and has gathered recognition from LPL for her efforts to expand her industry knowledge and continually learn. Her goal is to always provide exceptional client service while maintaining an optimistic attitude and standard of dependability. Her success is no doubt connected to her internal drive and commitment to exceptional follow-through. She is always eager to jump in and support the clients and team when needed and continues to contribute to all annual Thiesen Dueker Charity events. When Tess is not working, she is spending time with her family and her husband Stanley, their Yorkie, Bentley and the newest member of the Ward family, their son Hudson. Luckily for Tess, Stanley is an exceptional cook so they enjoy staying in for nice dinners and a glass of wine or two.
