Hometown: Marianna, Fla.
Undergraduate Degree: University of Florida
Travis was born and raised in Marianna, Fla., only leaving home for the last two years of his undergraduate education at the University of Florida. For the last decade, home life was working on his Dad's whitetail deer farm. Since the first fence went up when he was in middle school, the farm has grown from a hobby to a serious business. His interest in health care started during treatment for his broken wrist in high school. His goals were solidified during his mother's fight with terminal cancer. As a person and a caregiver, he owes his place in the College of Medicine to her in many ways.
