Ms. Zarych volunteered her time for the Homeless Advocacy Project and won her first trial as a student in the school's Juvenile Justice Clinic. Prior to law school, Ms. Zarych was honored for her excellence in academics and community service by being inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, the National Jesuit Honor Society. She was also granted membership into the National English Honor Society and National Religious Studies Honor Society. After leaving college Ms. Zarych worked in advertising research for a large magazine publisher in New York City. She is also registered in NJ as an EMT-Basic.

Ms. Zarych describes the American criminal justice system as one that is "inundating to the poor, the uneducated and the unrepresented. The ease with which innocent people are accused of crimes and the stigma that immediately attaches to them solely because of those accusations is shocking. We have a good system that is imperfect. As such, the criminal defense lawyer must be both a diplomat and a warrior."

She volunteers as an attorney-coach for Pleasantville High School's Mock Trial Team and with Habitat for Humanity of Atlantic County.
