Summer grew up playing beach volleyball with her family in their backyard. She played indoor at the University of Washington and the transferred to Pepperdine to play beach. After graduation, she began playing full-time on the AVP and FIVB Tours. Summer’s favorite career memory was when her and former teammate, Brooke Sweat, didn’t wear matching colored long sleeves in Moscow, and had to play in freezing hail and rain in just swimsuits. Her favorite AVP memory was winning her first championship in 2013 with Emily Day.
When she’s not playing volleyball, Summer likes to hang out with family, friends, play the piano, meet dogs, and ride her bike. Summer was also homeschooled and really recommends the book Soul Surfer by Bethany Hamilton. Her favorite food is Moon Cheese, and she loves to laugh.
