Zoe’s involvement with Sudan began when she accompanied Rebuild South Sudan founder Michael Kuany there in 2007 and experienced firsthand both the cultural and spiritual treasure of Southern Sudan as well as the devastation wrought by the long war.

Zoe currently teaches at San Quentin State Prison and lives in an intentional Christian community in San Francisco with her 8-year-old daughter.
