Summer earned her Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies at The Pennsylvania State University. During her time at Penn State, she was a fellow of the IES-sponsored Training Interdisciplinary Education Scientists (TIES) program, where she worked with Dr. Robert Roeser and Dr. Scott Gest. Her research focuses on teachers' occupational health and well-being and students' experiences in the classroom, as well as interventions to support the success of both teachers and students. She is currently working with Dr. Catherine Bradshaw and colleagues in Youth-Nex on the Double Check program. Originally from sunny Florida, Summer is excited to be back in the south!
