Sommerly Simser

Sommerly holds a Bachelor of Science in Broadcast Journalism from Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas, where she started her career as a reporter for NPR. The inability to add whimsical and exhilarating arcs to her story, otherwise known as fiction, propelled her to switch career paths. She opted to hit grad school first where she earned a Master of Fine Arts in Producing for Cinema & TV from Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia. In her final year as a grad student, she landed an internship on a CBS show that rolled into a job in Los Angeles. Since then, she has worked for a few of the industry’s titans: Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, and Imagine Entertainment. Sommerly currently works in Feature Film Production Finance at Netflix. In 2017, Sommerly was honored by being listed as a New Leader to Watch in Variety Magazine.

In addition to her work with The Greenhouse, Sommerly serves in leadership with the Junior League of Los Angeles and is a member of Women in Film. Sommerly and her husband, Nathanael, founded the Tinseltown Scholarship Society to aid students with a desire to pursue a career in the arts and media industries.
