Summer Spinks-Marasco has been a 3rd generation Shaklee Independent Distributor for the last 13 years, continuing the legacy of her grandparents and Shaklee Presidential Master Coordinator pioneers, Robert and the late Patricia Ewing. After 55 years, they have a vibrant organization that has reached over 4,000,000 in organizational volume with over 400 Business Leaders in just their 1st-6th level downline.
Her background is in the Performing Arts, as a creative writing major at New York University and with a former career as Managing Producer at The Theatre District at the historic Cast Theater in Hollywood. She is a produced playwright and poet and published a book of poetry in 2012, “Wise Words of the Waking Dead”, with illustrations by her Fine Artist husband, Mark.
In the same year, she Co-Founded the group, Portland Animal Welfare Advocates (PAWA) in Portland, Oregon, and served as Co-Organizer for 4 years. From 2015-2017, she walked dogs as a Volunteer at the Orange County Humane Society. And she is proud Guardian to 4 small dogs. She is also a regular blood donor to the American Red Cross and is on the Be The Match Registry for the National (Bone) Marrow Donor Program.
With a deep passion for traveling, she always longed for the same personal freedom and flexibility her family’s Shaklee business provided. (She has been on more than 20 Incentive Trips around the world since the age of 2 thanks to Shaklee.) She was able to regularly travel and commute between her homes in Portland, Oregon and Costa Mesa, California near their former business headquarters in southern California. In 2014, she received her certificate from Penn Foster in Wellness and has combined her background as artist, activist, and holistic health professional into this new venture in partnership with her sister and fellow vegan, Amanda. Recently they have all moved permanently back to the Pacific Northwest to the Seattle, Washington area!
In late 2018, she became a mother to son, Linden Alan, and one day hopes to pass this beautiful business onto him!
Amanda Spinks-Kinnison joined her family’s multi-generational Shaklee business in 2006 after years of working with children in her city’s Parks and Recreation Department. Being able to work intimately with her grandparents (Bob and Pat Ewing), mother Gayle, and sister Summer in the same environment she grew-up in was a major draw for her (not to mention the other perks like using the family Shaklee Bonus Car), and was exactly what she needed to pull herself out of grief after her father’s death.
During that emotional time, she had also gained weight. Using the Shaklee 180 program, she lost 65 lbs. in 2008 and regained her energy, inspiring others on their own Before and After weight loss journeys, even helping them find their Happily ever After-After by example. Since recommitting to the program in 2013, she has gone from a size 6 to a size 4 dress size which she has maintained ever since.
In 2014 she married Drew, an electrical contractor project manager. Together they decided to begin their own Shaklee distributorship and build their own legacy to pass onto their future generations, quickly becoming Directors. That same year Amanda received her certificate from Penn Foster in Fitness and Nutrition and is a natural living, environmental, and animal welfare advocate with her sister, as they also work their Shaklee businesses in tandem. From 2015-2016, she also began walking dogs as a Volunteer at the Orange County Humane Society. And she too is proud Guardian to 3 small dogs at home with her husband. They are all Anaheim Ducks fans.
She is a new mom as of 2017 to 2 daughters, Kenna Lee and Kenzie Lynne, and is able to work on her own part-time schedule. They have relocated their family from Orange County in southern California to Lynnwood, Washington and couldn’t be more excited about their new chapter.
