Summer Gathercole is driven to help make our world a better place.
Summer heard a calling to join the nonprofit sector, and began working full-time directly with homeless and low-income individuals to prepare them to (re)enter the workforce. She has founded and launched a nonprofit organization, served at the “state” Secretary of Labor for Washington, DC, and consulted to organizations of all sizes across the U.S. She is currently the Managing Director of SHG Advisors, a strategy and management consulting firm.
Summer moved to Colorado in the spring of 2012, and works with entities across the U.S. She is a graduate of Leadership Denver Class of 2015 (Best Class Ever!), and was appointed to the Governor’s Council for Active & Healthy Lifestyles in the fall of 2014. The Council promotes and supports events and programs that encourage physical fitness, educates citizens on the lifelong benefits of an active, healthy lifestyle, and collaborates with government entities, schools, nonprofit associations, businesses and healthcare and fitness organizations to advance the vision.
During her free time, you can find her on hiking trails with her boxer, Sammy, or traveling to some far-off adventure around the world.
