Meet Travis

Travis brings invaluable expertise to his role at LifeStore Bank, drawing from his experience in Agriculture. With a BS and MS from NC State University, his background equips him to provide specialized support to farmers and horticulturists. A long-time resident of Ashe County, Travis embraces the wisdom of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who famously said, "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." Guided by this belief, he channels his enthusiasm to his community through his roles as Board Member for Ashe County Chamber, Ashe Memorial Hospital Foundation Board member, and First Baptist Church Stewardship committee. In his leisure time, Travis finds joy in gardening, fishing, CrossFit, and creating lasting memories with his family.
