Tess Howell

Tess Howell, river guide for ARTA River Trips Tess is ARTA’s Renaissance Woman. She has two engineering degrees (Materials Science and Metallurgy from the University of Idaho) and she bakes (mostly bread, some cookies, always delicious). She does her own vehicle maintenance (1968 VW bug) and she crochets (mostly hats, some scarfs, always original). She can wire a circuit (solar!) and she can tend a garden (organic!) She sleeps under a blanket she sewed on a bed she made in a tiny house she built. She has a pair of waders, a pair of running shoes, two pairs of Chacos, and an adorable pair of ballet flats that go with just about anything.

Wait a minute. Maybe that makes Tess ARTA’s Millennial Woman.
