ABOUT TESS

Hey there! My name is Tess Heimerman. I am currently a 4/c cadet here at the Coast Guard Academy. I am from Washington, D.C. (yes, the actual city) and am currently on track to be a Mechanical Engineer. I am also on the rifle team.

I am the youngest of four with one sister and two brothers. I have one dog named Cosmo (a Bernese Mountain Dog). When I was first looking into the Academy, I was not sure if it was going to be the right choice for me. I had no prior military experience, but the more I looked into the Academy and the Coast Guard, the more I liked it. On my first attempt I was accepted into the Scholars Program and did a year of prep at Georgia Military College. I was excited when I received my appointment letter that said I was accepted. Looking back, I am really glad I took the chance and applied. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have met amazing people and have been given the opportunity to do amazing things since accepting my appointment. I am excited to see what the future holds in store.

If you have any questions or would like to know more feel free to email me at Tess.J.Heimerman@uscga.edu.
