SUMMER SULEIMAN Marketing Communications & Media
Health & Wellness
Inspiration & Motivation


Summer Suleiman began her career as a journalist with CNN at the height of the Arab Spring in 2010. At the cusp of her career, she was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder and returned home to her native New Orleans to recover.

Shortly after, she began reporting on the burgeoning, post-Katrina startup community, and subsequently launched The Distillery, a platform to tell the authentic stories of diverse entrepreneurs.

She combined her passion for health & wellness and entrepreneurship to teach meditation to entrepreneurs, and host and lead local wellness retreats. The Distillery has evolved into a community of entrepreneurs, creators, and innovators.
