Summer Chamblin is an entrepreneur, chef, content creator, and activist, who’s passionate about cooking, the environment, and giving back to her community. Her interests have led to various partnerships, including a social segment with Levi’s for the launch of Levi’s Secondhand, serving as a judge for the XPRIZE Next-Gen Mask Challenge and starring in Gucci’s holiday gift guide campaign. Though she wears many hats, Summer is particularly enthusiastic about food and has been cooking since she was five years old. As a child she spent her summers learning to make complex dishes at Sur La Table before going on to study at the International Culinary Center where she focused on culinary arts and baking. Her love of food also sparked a lifelong love for entrepreneurship, beginning with a brownie business that she started at just ten years old. Currently, she runs Summer’s Sweet Treats, an online bakery that sells a wide variety of homemade cookies. In addition to her business, Summer also maintains a growing YouTube presence, where she shares beginner-friendly recipes and behind the scenes vlog-style content that peels back the curtain on her life in New York City. On Instagram, Summer uses her platform for good, bringing attention to issues like climate change, the movement for Black lives, and, more recently, voting.
Summer is also one half of the June and Summer Show (or the Summer and June show, depending on who you ask), a bi-weekly Instagram Live series that was born in the early days of quarantine. There, she joins her mother, costume designer and creative director June Ambrose, to talk about everything from wellness to fashion to current events.
