Meet Summer Blizzard, the Director of Marketing Strategy and Business Analysis for Elmcroft Senior Living. Summer graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Business Management.

During college, Summer knew she wanted to work in the healthcare industry and aspired to find a career that combined her interest in technology, marketing, and most importantly serving others. When she graduated Summer accepted a sales and training position with a healthcare software company, which she excelled in and enjoyed but lacked the emotional connection that Summer desired. During this time Summer’s grandmother was diagnosed with Pick’s Disease(frontotemporal dementia) and required around the clock care which Summer’s mother provided. Looking back, Summer believes this experience made a big impact on her life and career. After her grandmother’s passing Summer accepted a training and project management position with Elmcroft Senior Living in Louisville, KY.

Although Summer was familiar with the aging services field, she never realized all of the opportunities that exist within the field of aging. Summer feels as if she has found the career that she aspired to have in college. She spends her time working with new technology systems, marketing, and serving others!
