Zoë Cooper

Creative Coordinator / Designer

Originally from Sydney, Australia, Zoë arrived in the Comox Valley in 2011 for an extended visit with her sister and to explore the area on a working holiday. But the landscape, lifestyle, and strong sense of community proved tough to leave and she is now happily at home here.
