Zoe is currently a senior at Florida Atlantic University and plans to graduate in 2024 with a major in Biological Sciences and a minor in Psychology. While she pursues her dreams of becoming a Medical Doctor, she dedicates the majority of her free time as a Horseback Riding Instructor for kids with developmental delay and veterans. Seeing how therapeutic this experience is for them helped her recognize the profound impact animals have on humans. Zoe grew up in a military family and understands that veterans may have long-term physical and psychological effects from military service. Zoe has a Golden Retriever named Hunter and most recently rescued two German Shepherds, Rocky and Rosie, who have helped her and her family through many hardships. She is excited to join the C-P.A.W.W. team and study the effects of the human-animal bond on veterans' health and well-being.
