About Me


Hi! My name is Zoe and I am a:

Purple Addict
Eternal Optimist
Wayward Professional

The Wayward Professional comes from the idea that everyone should be able to express themselves in everyday life. However, it is quite common that when people head into work their personality can take a back seat, why is that? Well, being a Wayward Professional myself, I want people to change the social norms and bring vibrant enthusiasm, not only in work life, but in every single moment that we can experience adventure and happiness!

In a nutshell, this a lifestyle blog aimed at improving professionals work life balance, along with fun injections of my own experiences and quirky inspiration…

So come read my stories and jump on board the Wayward ideal. Challenge your environment, challenge your communities; but most of all, challenge yourself to be the only version of you.

Deeming herself as a Wayward Professional, her tips and tricks on being yourself in the workforce has given more people the confidence they need to be creative and unique. Her current series the Wayward Guide to an International Stadium has been received fantastically by followers and she hopes to continue her work in the business field.  Zoe regularly contributes to Twenty Something Living, an online magazine which prides itself in being a place that 20 somethings can read and relate to.
