Coming from an artistic background, Tessa was very open to new opportunities within the industry. She always seeks to grow professionally and to further her education on a variety of topics.

1906 was the perfect fit for her!

This edible cannabis brand combines natural botanicals with drool-worthy cacao and cannabis for the ultimate edible experience.


Tessa’s new role as a packager is important to this type of company, where maintaining clean, consistent, and quality production is vital.

“It’s a very hands-on process that includes tasks such as working with chocolate molds, weighing, labeling, sanitation, wrapping, and operating various machines to deposit product,” says Tessa. “I’m happy to be responsible as a team member in the production process of packaging edibles!”


She absolutely loves being a part of the friendly and professional culture at 1906 and is excited to have easily found her new job through Vangst!
