Mobile 317-664-9974

Tessa Betterway was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. She graduated from college in 2012 with a degree in Business Management. In 2015, her passion for enabling others financially led her to the financial industry where she has delivered individualized strategies for financial affairs through a variety of products. Tessa took on a role as a Business Development Associate, and quickly learned the industry, market and products. As a result, she now runs a financial practice located in Houston, Texas. Currently, she has life and health insurance licenses, holding certifications for Series 6, Series 63, and Series 7.

Tessa is active in her community and serves as a member of different organizations. After making the decision to educate people on their finances, she started her practice in underserved communities. Her drive to educate today’s youth and women is shown through her volunteer service as a mentor for the BIG Program and Civil Society. During her tenure with Civil Society, she worked with a team to publish a curriculum called "Unlocking the Mind of a Winner”. As one of the co-authors, her vision for this project was to create content about financial concepts that attract and educate the younger population.

Ultimately, Tessa’s tenacious financial optimism among people is unquestionable. She provides her clients with a solid educational foundation, equips them with tools to be successful and empowers them to strive for financial excellence. It’s no wonder her vision is: Educate, Empower, and Equip.
