How did Tessa Virtue Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on May 17, 1989, in Ontario, Canada, Tessa Virtue grew up as the youngest of four children. A few years after getting into skating, she paired up with Scott Moir in 1997, at the age of eight. At the beginning of their career, the two were coached by Scott’s aunt; they later moved their training to Kitchener-Waterloo with Suzanne Killing and Paul MacIntosh.
At the age of fourteen, Tessa and Scott made their debut at the ISU Junior Grand Prix. From there, they went on to win the Junior title at the 2004 Canadian Championships, and the bronze medal at the 2006 Four Continents. Not long afterward, they made their international senior debut at the 2006 Skate Canada International event.
In 2010, the pair were selected for the Olympic Games to be held in Vancouver. Representing Canada, they eventually won the gold medal, making them the first ice dancers to have achieved such a feat since 1976. Later that same year, they also won gold at the World Championships held in Turin.
Continuing her ice dancing journey with Scott, the two have gone on to participate in numerous other competitions since including the Canadian Championships, Grand Prix Final, and Four Continents Championships, to name a few.

Of course, she has also toured with other figure skaters with Stars on Ice, a show that has brought her to many countries including Japan.
In late 2013, she also co-starred in the TV show, Tessa and Scott, which centered around their training for the Olympic Games.
