Creator, Producer and Director
In 2012, Stacey Summers founded her company Poppy Pro Productions. She teamed up with Adam Richard of Noble Imaging and Heikki Mikael Mustonen of SimpleView Entertainment in order to begin the development of the Unbreakable Threads documentary. She then partnered with Stig Daniels of Java Time Productions and completed the film.
Stacey has been an elementary school teacher and is now an artist, author of two books and a first-time filmmaker. She brings an international and diverse perspective to the film, born and raised in New York, and having lived in the UK, as well as in San Francisco and now Houston.
She is married with three daughters.
Glenda Vickery is a former Texas attorney and now full-time mother of three. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Mandarin Chinese from Grinnell College. Originally from east Texas, she is now settled in Houston raising a family.
Glenda serendipitously stumbled into this project after a chance conversation between strangers on a plane. Having children of her own, the project resonated with her on a personal level. Since her initial involvement, she has committed her ideas, time and resources to bringing the director’s vision to fruition.

He is currently in pre-production working on a dramatic short and an adaptation for a musical theatre project.
