One of our favorite docents, Ljubica Jovanovic, and her husband, Leonidas Kotsiris, recently became US citizens. Ljubica is originally from Serbia, and Leonidas (who teaches Modern Greek at the Parthenon) was born and raised in Australia to Greek parents. Ljubica and Leonidas met and married while studying in Athens. They traveled to Nashville together to obtain doctorates from Vanderbilt and have made their home here ever since.
