Zoë (she/her) has a background in environmental science and the performing arts. She worked for a decade as an environmental consultant on complex projects related to land protection, resource development, and community health. She’s also worked as an actor, director, and producer for film, theatre, and audio projects. Zoë combines her passion for the arts and community well-being by facilitating creative processes for conflict transformation, community building, and political advocacy. This work led her to the mediation world, where she was lucky enough to train under Richard Moore.

Zoë was honoured to have been chosen as CCECM’s first intern. She is excited to gain experience in a wide range of conflict interventions, and will be focusing her research on environmental conflict mediation, and conflict engagement related to gender and sexuality based discrimination. She recently developed and delivered two “improv for mediators” workshops, which were so well received by public and private sector mediators that more training programs are in the works.

Most importantly, Zoë is passionate about transformation. Transforming our relationships with ourselves, each other, and the planet so we can all flourish. She is eager to learn more about how conflict engagement and mediation can play a role in our collective transformation, through the powerful practices of listening, connecting, and imagining.
