We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiana Watson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tiana, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting my own business was to ensure the health of canines and humans. Learning how health issues are affecting the community in masses made me want to do something about it.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Career-wise Summertes not my ultimate goal, more of a hobby. Currently I am in Grad school to become a counselor and know that my passion is to help people not on the surface but deep down. I feel that mental health is important and part of great mental health is having a superb immune system. Healing the mind, body and spirit. Almost 2 years into Summertes that started with me trying to help our close friends and family. Seeing people and their pets were in need of I decided to offer others holistic products.

In growing my business, I learned that companies may have the same product but not the same idea as you so keep shooting for the stars. I want people to know that using herbs provided by the earth are beneficial. As humans made from the earth I believe the earth can and will help us out.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
When coming to Houston I have to take you uptown to visit the food truck corner. So many good things to eat. Next, I’d take you to enjoy Harwin where you can find a lot of deals and discounts on almost every selection. Now that we got food and shopping out of the way. There are plenty of beautiful trails depending on the weather. Which are in my opinion the most beautiful parts about this city. Learning about the Houstons native plants and species intrigue me most.
