Full Bio

Timm Lovitt enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 18. He served as an airborne-infantryman, rising from E-1 to E-5 (Sgt) in a little over three years. Stationed at Fort Drum as a part of the elite 10th Mountain Division, he deployed to the front lines in Afghanistan in 2003-2004 and then to Iraq in 2005-2006. After fulfilling his initial term of service, Timm decided to get out of the Army and return home to Seattle where he would pursue a career in real-estate; however, due to numerous traumatic experiences, Timm found it difficult to adjust. In 2008 Timm decided to return to school and pursue a degree that would enable him to help those returning from war. Timm is currently attending Seattle University in pursuit of a BA in Public Affairs, participating as a first generation Vet Corps member, sitting on the Student Veterans of America (SVA) Mental Health and the National Convention Planning Committees, as well as serving as the Washington State Director for the Student Veterans of America (SVA).
