Summer is a community development practitioner and social entrepreneur specialising in gender empowerment, diversity, and qualitative evaluation of social impact programs. Summer’s career has focused on overcoming social marginalisation in society, which stems from her childhood experience with the welfare system and as a family mental health carer.
Lead Mama Lead was born of Summer’s frustrations with (and eventual triumphs in) her career as a working mother, and her desire to apply her expertise to solve the problems faced by working mothers who are battling for meaningful work and time for family. Summer is the mother of two young boys, and has worked hard to develop a meaningful career with the flexibility she desires. She divides her work time between Lead Mama Lead, her consulting work with social impact programs, and her successful sustainable fashion and lifestyle blog.
