Prior to beginning her coaching career, Zoë travelled to Australia for her first year of law school, before returning to complete her Juris Doctor at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. She went on to practice litigation on Bay Street, both in firm and at a bank. In her practice, she helped major corporations and individuals work through complex challenges. She took a pragmatic and solution-oriented approach, and was particularly skilled at identifying issues that her clients were unable to see. She brings these skills and more to her coaching.
Zoë earned a B.A. in Political Science and Art History from McGill University. Her passion for social justice led her to spend the next two years working for Peacebuilders International (Canada), where she ran a restorative justice diversion program for young people in conflict with the law, and also ran a literacy and mentorship program in a youth correctional facility in Toronto. She continues to be a restorative and social justice advocate to this day, and serves as an advisor to Peacebuilders.
Zoë has guest lectured at Ryerson University and Osgoode Hall Law School. She also owns a successful WAXON Waxbar franchise in Toronto.
