Growing up in Pittsburgh, Dr. Antonis is a loyal Steelers fan!

In her spare time, Dr. Antonis enjoys spending time with her husband, Rob, 21-year-old daughter, Victoria who is in the Navy, 14-year-old step-daughter, Elliana, and two dogs (Anka and Nova). Together they enjoy playing games, hiking, and just hanging out together by the fire pit.
Relationships are the foundation from which Dr. Antonis leads. It is important to always listen and treat others the way in which you want to be treated. Through these tenets, Dr. Antonis is going to continue working to establish trust with the entire A-C community.
Dr. Antonis is excited to continue to encourage students to reach their fullest potential, to develop meaningful partnerships within the community, and to build on our successes! #DutchmenPride
