About Me

Hi, my name is Zoey Smith. I’ve been in management since March 2019, and I love data analysis and visualization.

My core values are:

  1. Community and Empathy: Combining the importance of building strong, supportive relationships with a deep understanding and compassion for others, this reflects a commitment to nurturing connections and empathetically responding to the needs and emotions of those around me.
  2. Creativity and Learning: Merging the pursuit of innovative, creative thinking with a dedication to continuous learning and growth, this highlights my appreciation for artistic expression and intellectual development, emphasizing the joy of exploring new ideas and skills.
  3. Autonomy and Collaboration: Balancing the significance of self-reliance and personal freedom with the benefits of working cooperatively, this embodies the respect for individual choice and independence while valuing teamwork, shared goals, and collective problem-solving.
  4. Fairness and Balance: Emphasizing a commitment to equity, justice, and a balanced approach in all aspects of life, this reflects my desire for equal treatment, equitable distribution of resources and responsibilities, and maintaining harmony in various situations.
  5. Well-Being and Support: Combining a focus on physical, mental, and emotional health with providing support to those in need, this represents my commitment to nurturing well-being, both in myself and others, and offering assistance and encouragement wherever possible.

I believe that employees are just as important as clients: if you have dissatisfied employees you will never have satisfied clients.

I manage my team of direct reports as a group of individuals rather than a individual group.
I try to accommodate individual requests: however, my priority is the good of the team.
I always advocate for my team and adhere to the principles of Servant Leadership.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, listening to audiobooks and music, meditating, writing, and playing the occasional computer game. When I watch TV, I prefer documentaries and home design/renovation shows.
