I’m passionate about supporting people to shine. I’m LGBTQI+ and 12-step recovery friendly. Here are some lovely words from people I have coached and mentored.
Summer is an insightful coach and caring mentor, as well as a talented digital strategist. Her willingness to share her own experiences and technical skills have shaped the blueprint of my professional leadership. She is an ally and advocate for those she mentors and encourages a safe-to-fail environment which is perfect for those looking to grow their leadership capabilities without judgement or fear.Georgia, CSIRO
Summer is an excellent team leader and mentor. As a recent graduate entering the professional workforce for the first time, she has supported me with my learning within the industry, and within myself. She always makes time to prepare me with the knowledge I need to succeed in marketing and PR and has helped me understand the finer details of web and copywriting, social media, and the beauty of the full stop. Summer is a friendly, helpful and patient leader, answering questions and requests from the team and me without hesitation. As my leader, she always ensures I understand the reasons behind her decisions, as well as supporting me 100% on my journey through the working world. I am truly blessed to have her as my mentor and leader, and she is the inspiration for my future career. Couldn’t give her a higher recommendation if I tried, Summer is a dedicated and extremely competent member of the team and will be a valued part of any team she works with.Natasha, Green Hat
Summer is real people-person – which makes her a great manager. During the time I worked with her I found her extremely supportive, ensuring our busy content team had the right resources to meet the needs of our colleagues and clients. She is also an excellent mentor for younger staff.Caroline, Green Hat
Throughout our sessions it was obvious that Summer is highly knowledgeable and passionate about helping people to achieve their full personal and professional potential. I engaged Summer as a career coach during a transition period in my career. I was burnt out and unsatisfied at my current job, but finding it difficult to identify exactly what I wanted and scared to make the leap to bigger things.
With Summer’s help, I was able to identify my values and my strengths and to map out my career aspirations and, with Summer’s mentoring, I successfully applied for a highly-competitive NHMRC fellowship. I was supported to identify areas where I had been poorly managed at previous workplaces, and to develop and implement boundaries and strategies moving forward, gaining conviction in my own worth as both a person and an employee.
Summer was also instrumental in helping me identify opportunities to develop my own leadership skills and to grow my professional network, as well as to develop the confidence to seize these opportunities and to grow to occupy space in my professional field. I highly recommend Summer’s coaching services for people at all stages of their professional lives.Ria, Sydney
