Travis is a member of the 119th Wing of the North Dakota Air National Guard based in Fargo and was deployed from July of 2017 to January of 2018. 

Natives of Tower City, the two have known each other since they were kids, having grown up in Tower City. They also attended school together. 

The couple has been married for almost 13 years, and with an anniversary date of June 18, 2005.
