Travis Arey

Communications & Outreach Manager


Ext. 109



Travis is a relatively new DC citizen, having moved to the city from Kansas at the beginning of 2018. Prior to his time at Contact 1, he worked extensively in customer service, primarily telephonically, setting up high-end teleconferences and assisting beneficiaries with health insurance information. He also spent a year at the Humane Society where he assisted in cat care, medications and surgery and first befriended his lifelong companion, his orange cat Hobbes.

He graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor's in Film and Media studies prior to moving to DC and was eager to join the team at Contact 1 to help tackle their outreach and social media. He has been on the other end of the employment game before and enjoys being able to provide assistance and insight to others in navigating the hurdles of the hiring field. Travis currently lives in Petworth with his girlfriend and aforementioned cat, Hobbes, and enjoys sampling the DC cuisine, performing karaoke, attending concerts, watching all the movies and immersing himself in the local culture.
