Travis is a former U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant who served honorably in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. During his service between 2001-2008 he deployed to Diego Garcia and Bagram Afghanistan. Post-service, Travis found that mindfulness helped him develop greater self awareness and resilience despite the many challenges life presents during and after transition to civilian life. He is a dynamic wellness practitioner with an emphasis on healing trauma through myofascial release, mindfulness meditation and mindful movement. He leads mindfulness meditation classes for children and adults with Mindful Littles, a 501c3 non-profit organization that combines the power of mindfulness and community action to spark compassionate action in youth to create a more positive future for themselves and the world. Travis has co-led mindfulness retreats for Veteran’s PATH since 2009 and currently serves as a mentor/advisor for veterans just beginning mindfulness training.
