Following her two year apprenticeship with The Barter Theatre, Zoë returned to the Washington DC scene to continue working.
She spent several months in the DC area performing with Free Range Humans (Jekyll & Hyde), continuing film work (The Walking Dead, America's Hidden Stories), and spreading Christmas Cheer at Nationals Park and The Gaylord Hotel (Clear Harmonies Productions).
After those joyous months, she returned to Abingdon, VA as a member of the Barter Theatre's Resident Acting Company. She is absolutely thrilled to spend the year with some juicy roles and alongside so many wonderful colleagues.
