Christian is a passionate life long educator who uses humor and emotion to create lasting learning in students. Christian has worked for 8 years in all levels of education and uses his Masters in Leadership Studies to translate educational leadership into practical direct lessons that students can realistically and effectively implement.

As a result, he has spent his career helping foster youth and the underprivileged find sustainable housing and assisted in college and career readiness to break the cycle of poverty and become the positive role model that he needed as a youth.  Travis is passionate about helping his community.  His Doctorate research is in the area of social injustice within the African American Community, particularly understanding how the barriers African American teens face affect their education and success. Additionally, what methods can we put in place to prevent these barriers?

Travis’ favorite quote “Positive thoughts bring positive results,” makes him a wonderful addition to the SV FACES team.
