Travis was born and raised in the Wood River Valley.  After a tour in the Air Force, college and a farming stint on the family vineyard, Travis and his wife Heather landed back in the valley.  Upon their return, they started a family and a retail Hearth business.  With 15 successful years of owning a business and working within the construction industry, Travis took a sabbatical before jumping into his next endeavor.  Upon his return, he worked as project manager for both a construction company and then a van conversion manufacturer.  During this time, Travis aspired to have a greater community impact and joined the Mountain Humane team in January 2019.

When he’s not gallivanting around the mountains with his family and dog Sophie, Travis loves tinkering in his garage.  Whether it’s remodeling a room in the house or converting a new camper van, Travis enjoys being creative and working with tools.
