Accomplishments

Olympia has been an active member of the Paralegal Advisory Committee at Mohawk College since 2018 where she contributes to shaping the future of the paralegal program. Olympia has also shared her expertise and enthusiasm as a part-time professor in the paralegal program.

Backstory

Olympia had a personal experience at age 13 that catapulted her desire to help others find the resources they need. It became Olympia’s goal to use her academic, personal, and professional experiences to assist others, whether in the legal field or academia. Olympia looks forward to contributing to a world where rights are not just recognized but actively upheld. Her focus has always been to assist individuals to realize their rights, achieve their potential, and seek justice in meaningful ways.

An interesting tidbit

Olympia loves traveling and was able to race her sisters at the original Olympic track in Greece! (she lost, as she is a horrible runner). She does, however, make a homemade Greek burger (Bifteki) so good that her grandparents even agree! Long story short, if she is not attending an F45 or Pilates class, she is eating and/or cooking!
