About Zoe Hicks

“What do I love to do?” asks Zoe. Speak to groups to encourage, equip and empower them by helping them see all that they were created to be. Women and men are longing to learn how to draw strength from God and guidance from his Word to deal with challenges faced at every stage of life. Zoe has spoken to groups of all ages from teens to seniors. She has done weekend retreats and one day seminars for women’s groups as well as being the keynote luncheon speaker at professional and church events.

As a decade long Disciple Bible Study teacher, Zoe has provided guidance to groups on a deeper understanding of scripture and meaningful real life applications of Biblical principles. As a mission team leader for her church, she has taken groups to Africa and Haiti to experience the joy of serving and to understand the abundance of blessings we enjoy in the United States compared to the rest of the world. Teams come home empowered and motivated to give and serve more generously.

Zoe received her A.B., J.D., and LL.M.(Master of Laws in Taxation) degrees from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
