Sommer Bailey

Guest Experience Ambassador/ Weekend Manager

A medical crisis first brought Sommer to Hospitality House, as a guest in 2016. The excellent care and compassion she received while a guest prompted her to come back and volunteer. In October 2017 Sommer became a permanent fixture at Hospitality House and joined the staff full-time. Sommer’s experience of being a guest at Hospitality House uniquely equips her to deliver the care most needed by our guests. When guests check-in with Sommer they experience kindness and compassion by someone who truly understands what they are going through. Sommer always has a pot of coffee on in the Welcome Center and a listening ear available for guests who need to talk.


When Sommer is not serving families she enjoys working in her garden, tending to her butterflies or traveling the open road with her husband.
