About Us

She’s Columbus Ohio -born and raised and a former Buckeye. Coming from a 1st generation Greek immigrant family, she values hard-work, integrity and is thankful for all the opportunities she and her family have had here in the US. She was 5 years old dancing ballet at the Ohio Theatre when she felt the synergy of the audience and the artist. Intuitively, she knew then she was a performer. Many adventures (living in Greece & the UK), detours (living in Boston), careers (teaching, marketing and even a professional organizer) and decades later, 
Zele is now a working actor in Atlanta with reps in NY, LA, SE & NE markets and now the EU.

These detours and adventures are the seeds that brought Actor Empower Hour in fruition. Through working on sets and meeting fellow creatives, she realized what came naturally to her, was a special skill set many creatives did not have. As a former teacher at international schools in Athens, she prepared students for British and US universities. As a Marketing Manager, she understands the business mentality, budgets and the different ways to sell and package a products through digital and print media. As a sole-proprietor, she understands how important professional relationships and networking are in building and sustaining one's business. Combined together, her clients receive personalized coaching in creating their 
marketing materials for all types of different engagements.
