Zoe is the Minister for Tourism and Multicultural Affairs in the South Australian Malinauskas Labor Government.
She is focused on building back the visitor economy from the uncertainty and impacts of COVID-19, with attention on South Australia's brand pillars of ‘natural therapy’, ‘accessible provenance’, ‘wildlife encounters’, ‘boutique capital’ and ‘loves a party’.
From 2018-2022, Zoe held the role of Shadow Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment.
Zoe became a Minister in 2014 and worked progressing the South Australian Government’s reform agenda on ageing, multicultural affairs, social housing and youth. During her time as Minister, she made energy bills cheaper for concession-holders, introduced the Cost of Living Concession, tripled the budget for multicultural affairs and gave people living in Retirement Villages a stronger voice.
Zoe was elected to the South Australian Parliament as the Member for Ramsay in 2012. She has a longstanding interest in education, training and business investment. Participation in the economy for all South Australians is a key driver for her interest in politics.
Born in Whyalla, Zoe lived in Gawler and Kapunda where she attended Kapunda High School. She now lives in Salisbury with her husband and son.
She has a BA from Flinders University and a MBA from the University of Adelaide.
Prior to her election Zoe worked for an iconic Australian tourism operator and was a director of a public affairs company.
