PhilosophyIn a word: Passionate

Olympia is deeply passionate about the law and its potential to assist, uplift, and empower people. Her approach to law is grounded in empathy and a steadfast belief in the power of advocacy. As a licensed paralegal with a background in human rights and employment law, her career is more than just a profession – it is a commitment to justice and helping others.

Paralegal Diploma, Honours, Mohawk College, 2018, licensed paralegal since 2018
Mental Health First Aid Training, 2016
Bachelor of Arts, Social Sciences: Political Science and Sociology, McMaster University, 2014


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.


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!
