Kristin Summers began her career as a music supervisor in Los Angeles working on feature films such as “The Blind Side”, “Sex and The City 2”, and Tom Fords’ “A Single Man”. With time, she took her talents to the boutique music publishing company, Heavy Hitters Music. As an integral member of the team, she discovered, signed, and shaped artists for music placements in film and TV. She worked alongside major television networks, editors, and producers to create music that fit to specified project needs.
In the spring of 2013, Kristin returned to her music supervision roots, becoming an Emmy Award-nominated music supervisor for her 4 years of work overseeing the music department for the daytime talk show, The Talk, at leading broadcasting network, CBS. In 2015, Kristin also cultivated and began teaching the Music Supervision in Film & TV course at Belmont University’s west coast location.
Since leaving Los Angeles in 2017, Kristin has found a new home in Chicago and a new passion in financial planning for individuals, families, and small business-owners. While specializing in entertainment strategies and socially responsible investment planning at Morgan Stanley, Kristin has partnered with the entertainment industry incubator and premier rehearsal space, 2112/Fort Knox Studios as the incubator’s financial mentor. She continues to help people across the country grow and protect their wealth to fund future goals, while also giving back to the entertainment community as a songwriting mentor to 1000+ songwriters with LA-based music publisher, Catch the Moon Music.
