Program and Product Development

SummerSmith, Inc. is also a product and program development consulting firm in the health and wellness industry.  Reed and Janet have made a life long career of creating growth opportunities for individuals and financial success for organizations. They have played a leading role in the design, opening and operation of several innovative programs in the United States and Europe.  Among their past clients include two of the top 10 health resorts in the world.

With SummerSmith’s guidance as product development consultant, The Miraval Health Resort, in Tucson Arizona, received unparalleled national press and customer response.  While still early in the program development stage, The Wall Street Journal reported, “The luxury resort business sure has changed”, The Robb Report called the concept “unique and one of the best in the world”, Mirabella said “How come it’s taken so long for someone to recognize the window in this market?” and McCall’s exclaimed “It’s about time someone came along with a concept this good!”


Our offices are located in the central foothills of Tucson, Arizona. We are located between Campbell and Swan, north of Skyline Rd. Our office offers a professional yet private setting with easy access from most parts of Tucson and Oro Valley. Please contact us for directions.
