Zoë owns Impressability, a boutique career development business, on the border of NSW and Victoria. She specializes in assisting and mentoring individuals on their career journey, while helping organizations to support their staff through the ups and downs of career life. In addition to one on one support, Zoë has delivered workshops, and both written and delivered full education programs tailored to meet the individual needs of various groups. She loves the energy of delivering training whether it is online or in person.
With lived experience of disability, homelessness and unemployment, she has an inherent sense of compassion and empathy for others, which has driven her to become a passionate advocate for those who so often go unheard. Zoë has written for Australian Community Media (including the Canberra Times) for five years, using her platform to shine a light on important perspectives relating to un/employment. She was awarded the inaugural Victorian Homelessness Media Award (Op Ed) in 2019 for her work in this space.
Zoë’s passion for advocacy led to enrolling in a Juris Doctor degree in 2019. Since beginning this course, she has taken on the Communications Lead and Lit Review Team Leader (for research relating to unemployment and poverty) on the Justice Map Project team and most recently has started volunteering with Woor-Dungin, specifically supporting the Rethinking Criminal Record Checks project in Victoria.
Zoë is available for writing gigs, speaking engagements, keynotes, presentations, training, contract work or interviews (or anything else you think might spark interest!).
