Zoe first got her start in the field of ABA when she took Behavior Modification with Dr. Brady Phelps while receiving her B. S. in Psychology from South Dakota State University. After getting hooked on behaviorism as an undergraduate student, she pursued her M. S. in Applied Behavior Analysis from St. Cloud State University. Zoe currently spends her time in the applied setting, but was no stranger to research as a graduate student. Zoe's research activities as a graduate student were conducted under the direction of Dr. Odessa Luna and Dr. Ben Witts. Zoe completed her thesis under the direction of Dr. Witts, titled Using Programmed Instruction to Improve Training Outcomes. Zoe's thesis is freely available through the St. Cloud State University repository, for those who are also interested in programmed instruction. Zoe thinks behavior analysis is an incredible, accessible, and powerful science! She is excited to help bring this life-changing science to the wider world through the MNABA website and supporting MNABA's other virtual dissemination methods.
Outside of the field of ABA, Zoe enjoys the many beautiful features and state parks Minnesota has to offer. When Zoe is not outdoors enjoying Minnesota's beautiful landscape, she can be found baking in her kitchen, binging movies on her couch, or gathered around her kitchen table to play board games with her friends and family.
