While in Idaho she participated in 4-H, Ballet, and many extracurricular actives. During her junior and senior high school years she participated in two Youth Mission projects, first going to Mexico and then traveling to the most eastern point of the United States, St. Croix US Virgin Islands. While in St. Croix, Summer met her husband who quickly decided that Idaho had a better Summer than the Virgin Islands. He moved to Idaho, and two years later they were married on August 8, 2008.

While attending Idaho State University Summer worked as a reporter for the newly created Idaho State of Mind, which is a state wide show that aired on PBS.
