She is very active helping to empower women in her local community to make healthy choices. When not off speaking or driving change, Zoe is a passionate skier who makes an annual pilgrimage to Alta, Utah to visit the snow gods with her family (husband and two daughters). Otherwise she can be found watching the Food Network to get ideas for her next family meal or doing something energetic and outdoors with her family in the New York Hudson Valley.
