Born and raised in Athens, Greece. Studied French and Greek Literature at the University of Athens and obtained also the certification as an interpreter French/Greek/French. Pursued a Masters Degree at Rutgers the State University of New Jersey where I taught for two years. After I graduated from there I moved to San Francisco, CA where I went back to school to become a software engineer. Lived there for fifteen years working as a software engineer. We (my late husband and I) formed a software engineering company which I sold when I was left alone and decided to move back to Greece. Dedicated my time to being a full time mother in Greece and raised both children to two wonderful adults. Have travelled extensively in the previous years and now I feel content discovering the natural beauty of so many little villages in this country. Maybe later I ll resume travelling in some other exotic places. Have been involved in some community work, studying italian, reading and enjoying a peaceful life. Decided to share my home with some selected individuals who wish to form memories in this area respectfully enjoying the premises.
