Tessa Henderson


I am a native Coloradan from Littleton. I attained my Bachelor in the Science of Nursing from Regis University in 2004, then my Master of Science in Nursing from Colorado State University-Pueblo in 2012. I am board certified in acute care for adult and geriatric population, as well as family practice across the lifespan. My nursing experience has been focused on critical care in the emergency room, intensive care, and trauma units and as a Hospitalist Nurse Practitioner. I joined SDCA in 2018 and love being part of a collaborative team and making a difference in people’s lives. I am a member of the American Nurses Association, Sigma Theta Tau Nursing Honor Society and the Society of Hospital Medicine.

My family loves spending time together, especially with our dogs and cat. We also enjoy traveling and living an active lifestyle.
