Meet Tessa.

What do you do at Hattie Rex?

I make dog tags.  I find new artists.  Meddle in everything.  Try to keep the wheels on.

What did you do pre-Hattie?

In my former life, I was a high school Spanish teacher.

Where's home? 

Currently, downtown Bozeman, Montana. Previously, Missouri and North Carolina.

What's your favorite Hattie product?

I still love making ID bars.  They're the most efficient dog tag style we carry, and they're fun to make!

What's your favorite dinosaur?

T-Rex for his badass ferociousness.

What's your hidden talent?

Celebrating. And making guacamole.

What's your spirit animal?

A fawn. She reminds me to be gentle with myself and others. It's a necessary counterpart to the T-Rex.

What makes you feel alive?

 Finding a new artist who's making amazing, innovative, and beautiful products. Being outside, in the woods, with sunshine.

Who (or what or where) warms your heart?

My little girl, Willa.  My husband, Sten. And our pups, Sofia and Garth. 

 
Meet Sofia.

What do you do at Hattie Rex?

I'm the shop dog. I lounge, model, greet, and entertain.

What did you do pre-Hattie?

 I was a stay-at-home.

Where's home?

Downtown Bozeman, Montana.

What's your favorite Hattie product?

I love the quiet collar ID tags because they make me stealthy and ninja-like while I'm hunting.

What's your hidden talent?

Finding snacks and hunting rabbits.

What's your spirit animal?

Cats. I love cats.

What makes you feel alive?

Cats. Also, the mailman, the UPS man, treats, toys that squeak, and strutting down Main Street.

Who warms your heart?

My best friend DB (Dumpster Bear), Sten Dad, hunky German Shepherds, and the adoring eyes of our store customers.
