Sophia was born in Canada but has lived most of her life in Greece. She studied philology at the University of Athens and is also a licensed tour guide. Years of experience with Ivy League Schools and Alumni associations have made her the ideal choice for visitors who wish to get insight from a local expert. A guest once said: "Sophia had an instinct for what we wanted to know and an impressive range of knowledge, academic and otherwise. She has a charming personality."
