With over 10 years of hospital experience, Tesa has always enjoyed working in Cardiology.  She started as a LVN working in a set up down intensive care unit in Beaumont, TX.  After becoming a Registered Nurse, she transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) to care for critically ill patients.  After extensive training, she managed continuous renal replacement therapy patients, hypothermia (after cardiac arrest) induced patients, then transferred to the Cardiovascular ICU to care for post-operative Cardiovascular patients after open heart surgery and peripheral vascular surgery.  When her family moved to Waco, in 2013, Tesa transferred to Ascension Providence Health Center to work in the ICU where she continued to care for cardiac patients while completing her nursing education.
