Having been born and raised in the Greek Orthodox faith I am well aware that council members must be mindful of the advice in the Parish Council handbook, ‘council members should imitate our Lord Jesus Christ, who “came not to be served but to serve” (Matthew 20:28).’  Over the past several years I have endeavored to use my time and talent to assist our Parish in its mission to bring Orthodoxy to northern Michigan. I had the privilege of serving on the Parish Council from 2010 to 2012 and currently am President of the Philoptochos Society. As Director of Development for Nevada Public Radio the station manager and I worked as a team to raise $5.5 million dollars to build a new state-of-the art facility.  As our parish faces the challenges ahead, I believe my many years of experience as a fundraiser would be an asset to the Parish and the Council as we move forward.
