Zoe Kladis


Zoe Kladis is a Speech, Language, and Hearing Science major from Lockport, Illinois. After graduation, Zoe plans to attend graduate school to earn a master’s degree in speech pathology.

“My best advice for incoming CHS students is to learn how you best stay organized whether that is using an assignment notebook, a calendar, or a spreadsheet,” she says. “Within college and CHS majors there are lots of events, due dates, and opportunities to keep track of. Coming into college prepared and familiar with how you stay organized is ideal.”

In addition to serving on the CHS Student Ambassador Leadership Team, Zoe is a participant in Greek Life, Rockin’ Against Multiple Sclerosis and the Mizzou Disability Coalition. 

Why did you choose to pursue a career in healthcare?  

I have always enjoyed working with others, especially in ways in which I could help them. A career in healthcare would give me the opportunity to work with others and help others. For me specifically I am passionate about working with individuals on their speech.
