Zoe graduated in 2013 from a three-year, 2200 hr acupuncture diploma program at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine in Bedford. She is currently a member in good standing with ATCMANS; the Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine Association of Nova Scotia. Zoe is a mother to two children, Liam (9) and Fiona (3) and partner to Matt, who she met planting trees in Northern Ontario in 2004. She is interested in all facets of natural medicine. As a girl she was influenced by her aunt, who was trained as a Homeopath and who opened her young mind to complementary forms of medicine. From there, Zoe’s interests grew to include Reiki, which she learned at 17, before going on to study Anthropology at both Acadia and Concordia Universities. Studying Anthropology further peaked her curiosities about energy healing, herbalism and shamanism in different cultures. After some years spent tree planting and WWOOFing across Canada and the North Eastern US, Zoe found herself back at home in Nova Scotia with Matt and their first child. Motherhood meant a change from her lifestyle of travelling and tree planting, and when the opportunity arose to make a career out of her healing interests and practices, Zoe felt that working as an Acupuncturist could be an important and rewarding part of her life’s work. And it has! Being able to help people become free of their pain and to assist them in improving the quality of their lives has been a tremendous honour and blessing. When not working, Zoe enjoys camping with her family, as well as hiking, gardening, dancing, singing, and listening to many and varied types of music - ranging from bluegrass to reggae and everything in between.
