Her educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in German Language and Literature from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

In 2007 she has joined the “Ioanna Kantartzi – Interpretation and Translation Centre”, where she and her team have been working behind the scenes for several international, high profile events.
