Our title, “It’s not just a job – it’s an adventure”
is an 80's tagline from the US Navy and
particularly apt for this episode with Summer Skillman. Summer joined the Navy as a nuclear engineer and traveled all around the world. She talks about her time in Japan where her artistic and entrepreneurial spirit began to flourish, creating a marketing origami flowers. Unlike many artists Summer is blessed to be using both sides
of her brain – an engineer – she’s an upbeat and practical marketer, plus she’s deeply artistic, talented and an enthusiastic creator. Today she lives happily in the Shenandoah Mountains where she is inspired by the natural landscapes to create beautifully moody paintings.
Our adventure begins, with Summer Skillman.
