Zoe Kennedy

Zoe Kennedy attended Naperville Central High School where she was involved in many extra-curricular activities and won many awards.  She also has worked as a care-giver for the elderly the past 2 years. Her work ethic and dedication for doing well in

school are supported by her dad and her mom, Lucy, who is a teacher in Burbank District 111.

It was Zoe’s fascination with the anatomy and physiology of all living things that sparked her interest in medicine.  It was during a visit to the emergency room for stitches that she realized she wanted to spend the rest of her life caring for those who require immediate medical attention.

Zoe will attend the University of Nebraska – Lincoln to study medicine to fulfill her aspirations in becoming and Emergency Room Physician Assistant.
