Travis Dezordo is a Financial Representative for Modern Woodmen, serving families and communities in Central and Northeast Ohio. He attended Mount Union University (BA) and Gardner Webb University (MA).

Before joining Modern Woodmen, Travis taught High School American History and Human Geography in North Carolina for 11 years and was runner-up for North Carolina Charter School Teacher of the Year. Through his time as a teacher, he developed a passion for having an impact in the community.

His ties with Modern Woodmen started well before he did, as his family has had a rich 30-year history with the company. The remarkable values and servant leadership for their clients and community is ultimately what drew Travis to joining the organization.

Now, Travis continues his passion for helping others by partnering with families to resolve financial concerns and plan for and protect the future. Travis is a member of the Presidents Club at Modern Woodmen and a member of the Million Dollar Round Table, It is however through Modern Woodmen’s fraternal programs and activities that he has reached the community, small businesses, and nonprofits.

Family is a large part of what drives him. In his free time, he can be found spending quality time with his wife and daughter.

I love to visit breweries, hang out with friends, spend time with my daughter and wife. I love to smoke pork, beef, and chicken. I love watching football and studying the stock market.
I love helping people and the community. I was an educator prior to moving into personal finance. Helping people has always been at the core of my being. Educating them to the point of independence has always a core foundational belief that has guided my life, my interactions with the community, and the people and organizations I choose to associate with.
I believe that Compassion Deliver has a mission that very much mirrors Modern Woodmen of America (my company.) We are a not for profit organization that exists to help our members and their communities. We do this through time, money, and community.
This question is very loaded. Honestly, I have never really thought about it. My mother is a hero for sure. She grew up with little to nothing and has created a family business that will sustain generations and she has done this with a servants heart.
I start celebrating Christmas in October.
