Summer joined Parks College in May of 2014.  Prior to joining Saint Louis University, she served other campuses in both academic affairs and student development roles.  In her work with students, Summer has focused on academic advising, co-curricular multicultural programs, “non-traditional” student services, and leadership and involvement programs.  She has also worked with the Warrior Transition Batallion at Fort Benning, GA, to develop and deliver college readiness programs for military service-members and their families.

In all of her work with students, Summer has focused on student learning.  As an academic advisor for Parks College, Summer seeks to build trusting learning partnerships with students that promote critical reflection, engaged inquiry, and student success.  She enjoys helping students arrive at clarity amidst the sometimes chaotic challenges life can present, and loves to see students grow as they set and achieve their academic, personal, and career goals.
