New Mexico, Las Cruces – Tessa Kennedy

Tessa Valadez Kennedy was born and raised in the Southwest and lives in Las Cruces, NM working at the university. She has always had a heart for storytelling, especially through film, and has often been compelled to pray for those in the entertainment industry. New Mexico’s recent partnerships with film industry leaders have led Tessa to a greater desire to draw in, and lean into, a community of believers within the entertainment industry in New Mexico, and strengthen the weary hands that hang down.
