Athina takes great pride in her 11-year tenure serving the Holy Archdiocese, initially as the Director of the District Office of Education and presently as the Assistant Director of the Department of Greek Education. In these roles, she tirelessly dedicates herself to the advancement of education, impacting the lives of countless students. Notably, she spearheads efforts to promote the Comprehensive Examination in Modern Greek, a recent achievement being its approval as a NYSED 4+1 Pathway assessment for the NYS High School Diploma. Beyond her professional achievements, Athina considers her greatest blessing to be her role as a devoted mother to three beautiful and healthy young children.
