Zoë was born in Cape Town, when she was 12 years old her family relocated to Durban, Amanzimtoti.

In one interview Zoe said “I’m a born and bred Capetonian, I grew up in Kuilsriver before our family made the big move to KZN”.

She went to Kingsway High School, and in 2007 at the age of 17 she was crowned 2nd Princess at the Miss SA Teen pageant.

After high school she left home to go au pair in the United States, living in Columbus for 18 months.

Upon returning to South Africa she started her studies at Stellenbosch University, where she completed a BA (Honours) International Relations degree in 2013.

Radio became a driving force in Zoë’s life. She found herself at Cape Town-based radio station KFM in 2014 where she reported on the traffic on Rob Vember’s Drive Time show, and now hosts her own show Saturday afternoons between 14h00 and 18h00.
