She worked at the Historical & Ethnological Society of Greece as curator of the Modern Greek Historical Archive, where she prepared a dissertation on French philhellenism (“Favier in Greece”) to be submitted to the University of Aix-en-Provence in France. She was awarded by the Academy of Athens for her participation in the monumental publication “Seals of Freedom”. She served 27 years in public secondary education as a philologist. She also gives lectures on historical, folklore, philosophical topics and guides Greeks as well as foreigners to Greek venues and museums. In the context of the dance performance of the “Dolopes” Dance Association, she will write and present historical narrations related to the Greek Revolution of 1821.
