Zoe Hawkins, D.O., is a third-year resident at Washington Health System Washington Hospital.
In addition to her regular duties, during the COVID-19 pandemic the Brockway native has helped implement virtual visits into the residents’ schedules, and has readjusted residents’ schedules to allow people to be more separated.
She is a graduate of the University of Scranton, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in biology. She earned a medical degree from LECOM in Erie, and is working at WHS for her family medicine residency program.
Hawkins enjoy spending time with her fiance, Evan, family and friends. They visit her family and Evan’s family frequently, and enjoy grilling on the patio.
The pair enjoy spending time outdoors, where they tend to a garden, fish, boat, hike, and travel. They go trout fishing in the spring and boating in the summer. Hawkins and her fiance also enjoy water sports, including paddleboarding and kayaking.
The couple has a 3-year-old German short hair pointer, Jaeger, who they often take to the park and on fall pheasant hunting trips.
