Eleni Alexiou


CEO & Founder

In 2002 I was awarded my first degree on Nutrition and one year later I started my professional career on the island of Crete where I stayed for 9 years. I completed two postgraduate courses in exercise and as a lifelong learner, I obtained a second BSc in Journalism and Mass Media Communication from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (July, 2019).

Coming from beautiful Kastoria and moving all around the country, I was fortuned to experience Greece, fall in love with its nature and enjoy all the different landscapes this country has to offer. As an outdoor enthusiast, I have counted numerous kilometers hiking in Greek mountains (Lefka ori, Pelion, Tzoumerka, Olympos, Grammos, etc) and abroad (Alps, Nepal, Oman) but also cycling, skiing, sea kayaking.

After gaining a long experience as a teacher in the field of education, I was attracted by the broader field of communication and the last 3 years I have been occupied in the tourism sector. Exploring new destinations has always been a challenge for me while transmitting messages about a more sustainable and active living stands as the ultimate goal of this business endeavor.

Why WellnessTales?

The term wellness appeared in 1960, when Dr.Halbert Dunn combined the words well-being and fitness with reference to the balance between body, mind and soul together with the environment, culture and spirituality.

Following the path of nature and combining the areas I specialize in, i.e. nutrition for health (wellbeing), exercise for an adequate physical condition (fitness), trips/tourism which turn into fairytales, I created my own brand: WellnessΤales!
