Tess Whitfield

Marketing, Events & Communications Coordinator

Marketing, Events & Comms Coordinator, Tess, joined the Lattice team in September 2020, whilst working in Events at the University of Sheffield. She graduated from UWL with a degree in Event Management and has a passion for organising and thrives in fast-paced and creative environments.

Tessa loves adventure and being outdoors and has enjoyed climbing for over 10 years, climbing some big peaks like Naranjo de Bulnes and the Chief in Squamish. She has also been lucky enough to travel and climb in some classic bouldering and sport areas like Fontainebleau, Frankenjura, Geyikbayiri, El Chorro, Redrocks, Bishop and more – but she has only recently started to take climbing more seriously. Lately she has been getting into trad climbing on the gritstone in the Peak District and training to start pushing her boulder grade up into the 7s.

Her goal is to climb ‘Rose de Sables’, 7a in Buoux, France later this year, when travel is back on the cards. Until then she wants to keep training, finish her smaller boulder projects in the peak and get back on the trad hype in the Spring!

When not climbing or out walking with her dog Luna, Tessa LOVES to cook. During the first lockdown Tess began a food blog and started sharing pictures of her creations (@tes.whitfield). Through this, a position was born at Lattice and you will spot Tessa’s content throughout our channels, as she helps create and manage our social media.
