Summer Spinks-Marasco has been a 3rd generation Shaklee Independent Distributor (or Ambassador) for the last 17 years, continuing the legacy of her grandparents and Shaklee Presidential Master Coordinator pioneers, Robert and the late Patricia Ewing. She is Co-Owner and President of their 59 year old natural health and wellness business, RLEI, Inc. In 2014, she received her certificate from Penn Foster Career College as a Wellness Coach. And she was elected on the Masters Executive Committee as 1st Member At Large by the Shaklee Masters Advisory Board for 2020-2021, representing thousands of Distributors in North America. She is regularly asked to speak at Shaklee events and meeting across the country.
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. During that time, she also worked in special events, catering, and staffing for Warner Bros. studio. 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 has been a foster for Rooster Haus Rescue since 2021 and on the Board of Directors since 2022. 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.
She is Mom to son, Linden Alan, since 2018. And at one time, as a former athlete herself, was an official referee for the American Youth Soccer Organization, coaching tournament teams for younger divisions. Summer is an Artist, a natural living, environmental, and animal Advocate as well as serial Volunteer for causes she is passionate about. Her vegan family now lives in Lynnwood, Washington.
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), late 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. That same year Amanda received her certificate from Penn Foster in Fitness and Nutrition. From 2015-2016, she also began walking dogs as a Volunteer at the Orange County Humane Society. And she too is proud Guardian to 1 small dog at home. They are all Anaheim Ducks fans.
She is also a 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 vegan family from Orange County in southern California to Lynnwood, Washington and couldn’t be more excited about their new chapter.
Josh Spinks is an original ‘Shaklee grandbaby’ and grew-up taking his daily spoonful of Shaklee Liqui-Lea before playing in the swimming pool at the house of his grandparents (Bob and Pat Ewing). He has always been fortunate enough to have Shaklee products in his life and to travel the world with his family (including his late mom, Gayle) on Shaklee incentive trips.
In 2007 he married Juli after meeting on a farm in Costa Rica and they have 3 children-Gavin, Nathan, and Macie. They moved their family from Long Beach, California to Weatherford, Texas in 2017.
Juli is a licensed massage therapist (LMT) who studied the healing arts. She worked part-time in the RLEI Shaklee Service Center for a couple of years before deciding to stay home full-time and homeschool their children.
Their whole family is Shaklee-ized. The kids love their morning Life Shakes and Shaklee 180 Snack Bars on the go. Juli uses the Get Clean line for the house, pampers herself with YOUTH, and inspires her fellow mom friends to also stay fit and active with a little help from Energy chews. And Josh uses Stress Relief Complex, Shaklee 180 Energizing Tea, and lots of the Performance Electrolyte Drink to help him get through long, hot summer days at his construction job.
They work together with his sisters Summer and Amanda of RLEI to form the Harmone Wholeness team.
