Born and raised in Nicosia, Cyprus, left at the age of 17 for studies in the UK. I lived in London for 4 years where I completed my Bachelor and Masters degrees. Upon returning to Cyprus, I was recruited by PwC and started my career in the People Consulting services where I stayed for 19 years climbing the career ladder up to the level of Director.

I am married to an Accountant and have 2 sons, that challenge me in a daily basis and maintain my energy levels at high levels. I am keen in learning new things, I read books and I am always in the search of finding new things to become passionate about. Currently, I am working towards becoming an accredited Trainer. I exercise and meditate regularly and I love listening to music and dancing.

What I enjoy about consulting is the opportunity to meet and work with people and learn about new businesses and industries every day, supporting them in framing and dealing with their challenges. I enjoy engaging in high level conversations, having the opportunity to share my knowledge and learn new things. A few highlights of my experience include:

  • Worked in large multi-country assignments and co-designed solutions with colleagues from various countries and cultures  
  • Provided services for family-businesses and facilitated difficult conversations on selecting successors and family / business issues
  • Managed  the executive search process for a number of the most high-level positions in Cyprus
