CREATIVITY FEEDS MY SOUL -
what feeds yours?
HERE'S MY WHY
Summer + Dreamer started because I was desperate to create beauty from ashes; to find a way to explore creativity and positivity at the same time - with a desperation for healing. At the beginning, I was creatively blocked, not advocating passionately for what I loved and worrying about what others would think. In one moment - as the words of a friend flashed on my screen, BE YOURSELF - my eyes opened, oceans parted, what people thought melted away. I began a journey to recognize that by not being my most authentic self, but being what I thought others wanted me to be, I was hurting myself. SO - I shifted. That simple.
Almost immediately ideas began to flood into my soul. What if I shared what I WAS passionate about - creativity, mental health, feminism, environmental concerns and social justice. I quickly realized that getting wonderfully lost along the way is just a part of the journey towards discovering yourself. Now we have started THE SUNSHINE PROJECT where our entire family is involved in changing lives of kids who need quality mental health help - but it all has started with the story of our amazing son Ty.

DESIGNER | FOUNDER | CREATOR
Summer + Dreamer is just that - my dreamer spirit coming to life. A small design business that started out of my need to create beautiful things for amazing people, but it became my place to heal and create beauty. Every single one of us are created to create beauty - this is my journey of creating beauty. My dream is a developing story - my own journey - to heal and to help everyone know that they are seen, known, heard + loved - reminding others that there is precious beauty in each one of us. Each of us wonderfully made, created with a beautiful purpose.
I am a Southern California native that became a transplant to Florida. I love all things ocean, sunset, beach. You can find this Enneagram 7 (w8) dreaming of adventures on my paddle board or simply sitting on the beach. I married the most supportive husband ever and we have FIVE beautiful kids who fuel my "why" and drive me to be the best version of myself.
Welcome to my little corner of the world.

There is a beautiful power and wild purpose in giving back - Summer + Dreamer is all about it. The Sunshine Project was started to support Ty G Lukumuena. Read his story HERE. All proceeds donated - our goal is to change lives and make a difference. PERIOD.
Help us make a difference.
Inspired collaborations are my jam. Working with my clients instead of for them creates an excitement for each project that I take on. The goal is to create an incredible finished design that feels like yours + inspires you and create original content that you love, that inspires you to be your most authentic self and give back to the causes that inspire you. Never a competition - always about support.
Period. It is all about women empowering women. This is a female owned business that supports other female owned businesses. I love working with clients who have a positive outlook, are excited + passionate about what they are doing and are changing the world for themselves or others.
No competition - only support.
