Debbie supports all participants on our Athens programs, acting as the main point of contact throughout their stay in Italy. She coordinates airport pickup, leads cultural excursions, and manages the 24-hour onsite emergency phone.
Debbie is a Greek-American who was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, she has been living in Athens for five years. She holds a bachelors degree in finance and business administration from Hellenic American University. Her professional background is in human resource management and customer service. She is an eccentric person who loves meeting new people and embracing new opportunities. She has a deep rooted love and passion for Greek history and culture which inspired her to start Opa Taxi and Tours in 2015. As an American and someone who has studied abroad herself she believes this combined experience of studying and living in a new country such as Greece is one of the best ways to grow, learn, and develop. An experience that will be remembered forever. Although she has very little experience in performing arts she absolutely adores Greek Traditional music and dances and is looking forward to learning a lot from students on site!
