Summer grew up with the travel bug thanks to exploring the country (mostly by car) with her family during school breaks as a kid. While studying social work at NYU she started racking up frequent flyer miles flying on deals, often visiting friends and family back home in Texas on breaks and long weekends. By the time her two girls came along years later, she had a full-blown love and appreciation for what miles and points could do for families looking to experience the world on a budget. Summer launched the Mommy Points blog in 2011 to show families that miles, points, and loyalty programs weren’t just for the business travelers, but they were for us, too.
In the summer of 2018, Mommy Points was acquired by The Points Guy where it lives on as a component of TPG Family. In addition to continuing the Mommy Points column, Summer now is the head of TPG Family content. You can learn more about the history of the Mommy Points site and the process of joining the TPG here.
When she isn’t at her computer hunting for travel deals, she can be found eating shave ice on the North Shore of Kauai, maximizing FastPasses at Disney World, admiring castles in Scotland, or just swimming at home in Texas with her family.
