Tena Pettis

Entrepreneur

Meet Tena. She is spontaneous, strategic, adventurous and if you aren't careful, she may just push you out of your comfort zone.

In 2009 Tena left her big girl job and launched in to entrepreneurship. She built a digital design agency up from scratch but after 10 years in the field, she kicked the office to the side and found herself as a Work at Home Mama. She did the one thing she thought she would never do - she jumped in to a company that wasn't her own. This company happens to be doTERRA and she proudly wears her networking marketing badge of honor. She rose in the ranks, brought her hubby home from corporate and now focuses on helping other women do the same.

Also, alongside her hubby, she is coaching couples as they maneuver marriage — the highs and lows.

You can find her hanging out in instagram, her podcast 'tena talks a lot' or a local 'to her' coffee shop.
