Zoe Shealy

Sr. Recruiter

Zoe is a Sr. Recruiter at RNG and is incredibly proud to be a part of a team that makes relationships core to what they do. She has a knack for connecting with people from all walks of life and is always working to ensure that people feel comfortable and heard in any situation. She is almost a native to Boise, but at the end of the day, she knows she can’t technically pull that card since her family moved here when she was 2.  She graduated from Boise High before moving to Flagstaff, AZ where she earned a degree in City Planning from Northern Arizona University and couldn’t resist coming back home to Boise, a place that she considers to be incredibly special. Her and her husband own a local coffee roasting shop, Neckar Coffee, that she helped open in 2018 and if you ever can’t find her, she’s likely there! When she’s not at the office, Zoe loves spending her free time outside, reading a good book, cooking, and most importantly, being with her husband and her 2-year-old daughter.
