Meet the Xec Board: Sonia Summers


Sonia Summers,
Director of Brand Marketing & Co-founder

Marketing maven by day, social enthusiast by night

I was born and raised in Milwaukee and no matter how many times I leave, God brings me right back. I went to Howard University (The real HU! #BisonPride) in Washington D.C., where I studied broadcast journalism. After undergrad, I moved back to Milwaukee and worked for five years in telecommunications. I was bored with my social life and was stagnant in my career, so I quit my job and moved to Evanston, IL to attend Northwestern University, where I obtained a master’s in integrated marketing communications. I came back to Milwaukee where I am now working in marketing communications.

When I was asked to be a part of starting Social X, I immediately hopped on board because I felt a HUGE void in my social life. I’m so proud of the growth that we’ve achieved since inception! Because of Social X events I actually don’t mind living in Milwaukee. I love that we’re able to create opportunities for folks like us to come together in a judgment free zone to let loose and have a good time. Seeing people have fun at our events is the most rewarding thing about being a part of Social X. I love my Xers!!!
