Prior to joining Oxeon, Zena spent four and a half years working for City Year New York, an education non-profit organization dedicated to fighting the dropout crisis in American public schools.

Zena is originally from Apopka, Florida, a suburb of Orlando. She received her B.S. in Communication Management and Design with a concentration in Corporate Communications from Ithaca College. Since 2011, Zena has found a true love for NYC, eating her way through each of the neighborhoods and enjoying all of the entertainment the city has to offer. She can often be found on her way to a yoga class, checking out a brewery, or cheering on her beloved Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
