Zoe joined Genius Within as a career coach and case manager in our employability team in 2018 after working in administration since leaving school. She is currently studying for her degree in psychology and her level 5 professional workplace coaching.
Zoe has lived experience of being unemployed, of masking, of having to pretend she was someone she wasn’t. She understands at a personal level the experience of marginalisation and exclusion. In her own journey, as a single mother in a mixed-race family, she has learned to share with her clients her understanding of how we get misunderstood and how to walk the talk.
When Zoe is coaching at her best, she is like a scaffold, creating structure for her clients to learn to stand up for themselves and believe in themselves. Zoe loves when her clients get light bulb moments about their own ability and talent, the joy of gaining confidence and faith in their own abilities. Zoe’s clients learn to take that self-empowerment into the workplace.
