Born in Long Island, New York, Zoë moved to South Bend, IN at the age of 7. She began playing sports at a very young age, competing in swimming, gymnastics, softball, cross country, track and field and basketball. She also demonstrated an aptitude for music, playing the violin in the South Bend Youth Symphony Orchestra and teaching herself how to play guitar and piano. While she excelled in her athleticism, receiving several awards in track and field and played on Saint Joseph High School’s JV and Varsity basketball teams, she ultimately decided she wanted to focus her efforts on the arts.
During this time, she developed a new love for musical theatre. To pursue this passion, she left behind sports altogether and transferred to Clay High School’s magnet program for visual and performing arts. She specifically focused on vocal performance. Outside of school, she participated in several shows on the Clay High School stage, as well as, South Bend Civic Theatre, and began to help her mother, Kelly Morgan (Founder & Artistic Director), transform her Uzima Fitness exercise classes into the dance company that Uzima! Drum and Dance is today.
In 2016, Zoë served as an AmeriCorps service member at Robinson Community Learning Center on the Youth Development team. It was there that she discovered a passion for teaching and working with children. Wanting to expand this passion into a career, she is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Education with a major in Elementary Education and a concentration in History. She hopes to use her background in the arts to enhance her curriculum and ignite a passion in her students for learning.
