Zoë Meyers is a photo and video journalist at inewsource. Zoë loves working as a visual journalist because it gives her the privilege of witnessing moments in people's personal lives and in our community that can enhance our understanding of important stories. When she's not behind the camera, Zoë loves spending time outside running and hiking or trying to become a decent surfer at San Diego beaches. Zoë grew up in New York but moved to California to attend Pomona College, where she studied history and English as an undergraduate and ran for Pomona-Pitzer track and field and cross country teams. She has had a hard time leaving California ever since.
Before moving to San Diego to join inewsource Zoë lived in Palm Springs where she worked at The Desert Sun and explored the desert for three years. The stories she worked on there included "Poisoned Cities, Deadly Border" which received a national Edward R. Murrow Award, the Society of Professional Journalists New America Award, and a regional Emmy Award. Zoë has also worked independently on documentary photography and video projects. In 2015 she produced the "Worth of Water" video series for High Country News and worked on the multimedia documentary "Dreams of Dust" with funding from California Humanities.
