After a fifteen-year corporate career, Summer decided to use her life’s challenges to help others overcome theirs. She is an author, speaker, life coach, and entrepreneur. 

Summer is the president and CEO of S.O. What! LLC and The S.O. What! Foundation and author of Life After Birth: A Memoir of Survival and Success as a Teenage Mother and the S.O. What!
