Summer Gail Diegel loves the ocean, chocolate chip cookies, their friends, and kin. They can be found playing D&D, taking a nap, sharing stories, and admiring book shops.
Summer is a full-spectrum doula who enjoys time with people of all-ages in the waves of slowing down (and speeding up) to embrace life's cycles, transitions, and rites. They are often building curriculum, organizing spaces for community-led care, or offering nonmedical support, game nights, and study groups.
Summer is currently director of youth & family education at Valley & Mountain Fellowship guiding the children & youth ministry programs, and on the board of directors for A Sacred Passing: Death Midwifery & Community Education. They have over a decade of experience integrating storytelling and playfulness as allies in care work in the service of peers, children, and elders.
