Travis is the kind of person who makes sure he’s well-prepared for everything he does. He’s very competitive when playing board games with our friends and family. And even though he likes to win, he has a generous heart. He works with several non-profit organizations making sure that youth have opportunities to develop artistic skills. For work, Travis is a research director for an organization focused on women’s equality and also teaches sociology classes at a nearby university. Giving back to the community is important to him!
Nick’s love of helping others is what took him to Thailand where he worked with the Peace
Corps to help teach foreign students. He makes instant friends wherever he goes since he is so
friendly and likable. He works with international students, helping them transition to life at college in the U.S. Nick is from a big family that he gets to spend a lot of time with since they all
live close by. He enjoys volunteering his time working with young artists with disabilities at a
local non-profit organization.
We met serendipitously in 2018 at an art event. It might sound cliche, but they met at just the
right time – it was love at first sight – and we’ve been together ever since that art event. We love
to go camping at nearby state parks, traveling and exploring new places, and spending time
with our big extended family. We recently bought our first home and have enjoyed learning new
skills together – whether it’s how to grow a wildflower garden, or renovate a bathroom – we’re
always excited for a new adventure. We can’t wait to welcome a new member of our family
home to share our journey with.
