The Greek-American's renowned entertainment career was established when she began as an International Famous Agency agent.

Pappas, who currently resides in Chicago, has been a leader in the global promotion of Hellenic art and culture. Her work has been featured on CNN, Euronews and in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The International Herald Tribune, and Time Magazine, among other leading media portals.

This past March, the Public Relations Strategist & Art Exhibition Consultant joined Hilton Asmus Contemporary and works as its Marketing Director, along with other art and entertainment ventures.
As Pappas states at the conclusion of her interview, "I am very proud to be Greek. I spent a number of years in Greece promoting the things that I believe is important which is art and culture. All I can say is that I hope that there is a light soon at the end of the tunnel and that things will turn around. Unfortunately many times for things to change, things have to come to a turning point."
