C: 425-766-6969zoe.nelson@kingcd.org

Raised in King County, Zoe is passionate about conservation in home state. She has a Bachelor’s in Environmental Planning and Policy from Western Washington University and Master’s in Science Teaching and Environment and Natural Resources from the University of Wyoming.

In her early career, Zoe explored conservation from many angles. She served as an AmeriCorps member for Washington State Parks, a Park Ranger in Bellevue, WA, and an Interpretive Park Ranger at Grand Teton National Park. While education is her passion, she has also worked as a field technician tracking wolves and wolverines throughout the mountains of Wyoming, rehabilitating wild birds of prey, and sweep-netting insects for agricultural research. She comes to KCD with a background in community-based stewardship, volunteer management, and education throughout the west focused on agriculture, biodiversity, and restoration.

Zoe is thrilled to be a part of KCD’s Education team where she can focus on her passion for curriculum development, community-based solutions, and climate resilience. In her personal time, Zoe loves skiing of all kinds, hiking, travelling, embroidery, cooking, and good company.
