Zoë grew up on the Mississippi River in northern Wisconsin. She attended the Three Rivers Waldorf School in La Crosse, WI from early childhood all the way through eighth grade. Zoë went on to public high school, then volunteered in an elementary school with AmeriCorps for a gap year before studying Apparel Design and Development at the University of Wisconsin Stout. In years since, she’s lived as a traveler around all of the contiguous United States as well as a wide variety of countries overseas. Zoë landed in Tucson in 2019 after hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and was immediately enchanted by the vast desert and tight knit communities here. In her free time, Zoë enjoys traveling, sewing, painting, making food with loved ones, practicing yoga, playing with her friends’ babies, and spending time in the mountains.
