As one of a minority of female specialists in her field, Dr. Travis sees herself as being in a unique position to reduce barriers when it comes to caring for the predominantly female MS patient population. Her care philosophy involves listening carefully to her patients’ needs and concerns, educating them about their options, advocating for them, and helping them be as healthy as possible. She enjoys the relational aspect of caring for patients with MS and encourages ongoing conversations based on her patients’ needs and the ongoing advancements in MS treatment that science has to offer. She thoroughly enjoys the teaching aspect of her work, both in the classroom and in the consultation room. When she’s not focused on multiple sclerosis alongside her father, fellow MS expert and Center for Neurology and Spine neurologist Dr. Barry A. Hendin, Dr. Travis enjoys spending time with her husband and eight children.
