I believe CFEs have a duty to be active in their communities, as do all citizens.Dr. Maria Krambia-Kapardis, Ph.D., CFE
I enjoy walking in the park at sunrise, as I get inspired by the peaceful nature and the birds. It was during one of those walks when I found myself focusing on the wildflowers rather than the weeds, and after the walk I put together the proposal of a Business Ethos awards, currently offered by Cyprus Integrity Forum and Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry. I also enjoy knitting, gardening and cooking.
