Zoe is originally from New Rochelle, New York. She attended and graduated from New Rochelle High School, and was a member of her Varsity Cheerleading Team as well as the National Honor Society. She now attends Indiana University-Bloomington where she is studying Fitness and Wellness on an Occupational Therapy track. When she graduates from IU, she hopes to go to New York University and graduate with her Master's and Doctorate degree in Occupational Therapy. She enjoys hanging out with her friends and family. She also adores all types of music, but maybe not country so much! She is extremely passionate about the things that awaits her but is also enjoying her time at Indiana University and being a Hoosier!

Best Career Blunder

Being forgetful of having a name tag on and wondering how people knew my name!

Biggest Challenge

Transitioning from New York to Indiana! It was a big culture shock for me and I knew no one here besides my roommate. It was very difficult at first but overtime, I found my niche and made IU my home!

Lessons Learned

It isn't that difficult to make someones day, it just takes being a decent person even if you're not having the best day yourself.
