Ambition: To make it through college. She and her mother both wanted a good college education for her.
Her main purpose of becoming a lifeguard was to garner more money so that she and her mother could live more comfortably.
Later after college, she returned to the lifeguard scene.
Frustrations & Chief Disappointments: Not able to keep a good, steady relationship. She broke
up with Matt Brody when she left for college. She had moved on ahead and was already gone. Her mother Jackie was to follow
after the earthquake.
After boyfriend Jimmy Slade left for the surfing competition circuit, she quickly took interest in Matt Brody, who
was Jimmy's best friend at the time. The two had established a romantic relationship without any thought concerning
Jimmy. She never broke off the relationship. Jimmy came back to the couple's surprise after the circuit tour, expecting things
to be fine. Only to find out that Summer and Matt had dated behind his back.
It was an uncomfortable position to be in and it ended up in a fight over Summer. Matt and Jimmy made up afterward because
only Summer could choose who she really wanted. Jimmy left Baywatch after the incident.
Her problems with heights and an incident that had resurfaced kept her from making rescues. When she was
about four years old, her violent, abusive father trapped her in their hot-tub by placing a heavy object over it to keep
her from getting out. The fearful experience suddenly surfaced when she became a lifeguard. She couldn't demonstrate any skills
when she needed to make rescues. The water was the same awful green color. Then she talked it over with her mother. Jackie
didn't think that she would ever remember that awful experience. She was barely four years old. She explained the hot-tub
abuse and that right after the incident, she packed them both up and left her father.
