Zoe is a devoted and experienced leader. 

Zoë has a deep connection to Coquitlam. For many years, she managed a thriving dental practice in City Centre, providing dedicated care to thousands of Coquitlam families. Because her business (and personal) philosophy is rooted in giving back to the community, she and her team were very involved in community engagement, hosting annual events to create beautiful smiles for mothers in need, Teddy Bear’s Picnic & parade, community outreach events and initiatives to educate children and families on the importance of oral health. Zoë's youngest daughter attended Eagle Ridge Elementary, Scott Creek Middle, and Gleneagle Secondary school in Coquitlam. This led to her family's involvement at school and extracurricular activities throughout the community.

A dedicated volunteer, Zoë donates a large portion of her Council salary each year to support local causes. "Inclusion and volunteerism are part of our family philosophy", she says. "Inclusivity builds bridges, creates lasting relationships and the cultural sharing that comes from it is truly extraordinary." When her own daughters were growing up, she and her family welcomed international exchange students into their home from countries around the world, who needed a place to live while studying here. Zoë also participated on the board of Access Youth Services, served meals to homeless persons on night shifts at TriCities shelters, and hosted fundraising events for Crossroads Hospice, Earth Day and the Port Moody Arts Centre. She ran highly successful fundraising campaigns for Golden Spike Days, special events and school projects.


First elected to city council in Port Moody in 2011, Zoë worked hard to protect our beautiful natural environment and strengthen the local economy. For over a decade, she has been advocating for local employment and small business in the area. During the city's Official Community Plan deliberations, Zoe pushed for more employment space to promote well-paying jobs, stimulate our daytime economy and help reduce traffic congestion. She is a tireless advocate for affordable housing and better amenities throughout the community. For the past several years, she has been working hand in hand with a group of Mayors, Councillors and Fire Chiefs from Coquitlam, Burnaby, Delta, Langley and Vancouver, working to expand emergency medical support by first responders and ensure our communities are better served...
