Before Zoe was in the first grade she lived in five different states and two different countries, and somehow she still likes to travel. Zoe studied English at Davidson College where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude. She was a John Montgomery Belk Scholar and received a Davidson Research Initiative Grant to study racism and integration in early twentieth-century magazines. After Davidson, she went back to school at Boston University for her MFA in Fiction Writing where she taught a writing workshop to undergraduate students who were all taller than she is. When she’s not writing or reading, she’s editing Misadventures, an outdoors magazine for women.
In between degrees, Zoe worked as a high school English teacher at the Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii and Buckingham Browne and Nichols in Cambridge, MA. Because of that, she has a lot of practice getting students ready for the SATs, applying to college, writing academic essays, preparing creative writing portfolios, and beyond. She loves helping people become better readers, writers, speakers, book-enthusiasts, and lives to help others find their own unique narratives.
She enjoys surfing, sailing, swimming and anything else that takes place in the water. If she could, she would be underwater all the time. Since she can’t, she also likes beekeeping.
