Tessa Brainard

Guest Services Coordinator | The Dollywood Company



Tessa was born and raised in Sedona, Arizona, and is proud to call the desert her true home. She came to Dollywood as a Merchandise Intern during her senior year of college. She joined the Public Relations Team as a PR Intern in the Spring of 2023. The following August, she officially moved from her home state to come on board as the Team’s Guest Services Coordinator. A recent graduate from Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!), she now resides in Knoxville. She attends the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!) to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in French Studies with a minor in American Sign Language. She is passionate about animals (particularly her roommate’s tiny tuxedo cat, Snoopy), books, international travel, language learning, and music. When she is not at Dollywood or focusing on her studies, she can be found at a concert or traveling to one.
