Nice to meet you!

We are the small-but-mighty crew at Zoe Communications Group, the team behind Metro Parent. We take our work seriously, but ourselves? Not so much. Keep scrolling for some of our office antics and meet the faces behind the pages.

Meet the Staff

Metro Parent, as a Zoe Communications Group company, is certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) – that’s the official way of saying we are a women-owned company and proud of it. When you support us, you support the little guy and for that we are forever grateful.
