Zoe is a class of 2018 Newtown High School graduate and member of the Skidmore College class of 2022. She plans to study Neuroscience with a potential minor in Computer Science. At Skidmore, she is a starting player for the Women’s Volleyball team. During her high school career, she was a two-year student leader in the Unified Theater program and a three-year member of the Best Buddies Chapter at NHS. She has always had strong interests in the sciences, thoroughly enjoying her Biology and Chemistry classes. After taking a Psychology course and learning more about the brain and its functions, Zoe became increasingly interested in bridging the gap between cognitive and biochemical sciences. This led to her passion for Neuroscience. She is ecstatic to be working with The Avielle Foundation because this organization directly fosters her passions while conducting research for a cause with goals she enthusiastically supports.
