Funeral Director, Principal, Justice of the Peace
Vicky initially began in the funeral industry as a funeral director’s assistant, working for the first and only Greek Orthodox funeral home in Sydney at the time. In these early years, Vicky gained the bulk of her experience by training closely with well respected, senior funeral directors.
With previous practical knowledge in the cosmetic and skincare industry as well as her experience in accounts management and business, Vicky was able to bring this extensive skill set to the funeral industry.
During her years as a funeral director’s assistant, Vicky adopted a broad and thorough knowledge of the funeral industry, leading her to be capable of arranging and conducting the funeral services she had previously observed. Her experience in a leading role allowed her to eventually have the skills to be able to manage the funeral home. Taking the time to listen to and care for the families she worked with during their time of need proved her to be the genuine and compassionate person that she is. By taking such pride in her work, Vicky has grown to become well respected and highly admired within the community.
Today, Vicky and her husband, Michael, are the proud owners of Acropolis Funeral Services and have been so since 2005, managing a team of approximately twenty staff.
“I have always told myself that if you stop liking what you do, it is time to do something else. For me, I admire the families I work with every day. I appreciate the opportunity I have to help them, guide them and really listen to what they have to say. This is how I’ve accomplished so much. I must say, I have learnt a great deal from the people I have worked with and I am so grateful to have been a part of their lives during their time of need.”
