Zoe was educated locally in Ludlow a market town and eventually studied at Portsmouth University and gained a BA (Hons) she was accepted to study an MA in the history of Art, Design and Architecture at Birmingham university.

She lost her sight in her twenties but developed an interesting international career in equality embedding this-across culture and heritage. Zoe identifies as a disabled person and had embraced disability culture in all its facets and alternative approaches. She believes losing sight has given her more vision and insight not less in our changing world.

Zoe spent a lot of time growing up in Cornwall and is passionate about all our heritage and the power and fantastic insights it provides communities to share their experiences and culture.

Through her work with the British Council, she has had the fortune to travel around the world and meet many disabled communities that are vibrant, tenacious and resourceful, but who have fewer freedoms than we have in the UK.
