Travis Manion Foundation
Ryan has served as the President of Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) since 2012, leading a national movement to empower veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations. She is inspired by her brother, First Lieutenant Travis Manion of the United States Marine Corps, who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq in 2007 while drawing fire away from his wounded comrades.
Ryan has led Travis Manion Foundation in inspiring over 150,000 young adults to live with character and serve their community, in addition to supporting over 60,000 Veterans and survivors through other TMF initiatives. Ryan also serves as a board member for National Association of Veteran-Serving Organizations (NAVSO).
