Eleni Tsoupa was born 1979 in Thessaloniki. She grew up in Axioupoli, Kilkis. Already as a small girl she knew that her love for animals would define her later professional life. The only choice being the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki she was admitted there in 1999 and graduated in 2005. For three years she then worked at the directorate of a veterinarian clinic in the prefecture of Kilkis where she would be occupied with public health and the implementation of mandatory vaccinations in life stock units.
Her studies in Thessaloniki not only gave her the longed-for certificate but also the acquaintance with Kostas Antonopoulos which was to determine her future professional and personal life. In 2009 they jointly decided to establish the Small Animal Clinic in Kalamata. Since then they have been working together harmoniously with the common aim of providing the best possible service to the companion animals of Kalamata and the wider area of Messinia.
Lena has specialized in Veterinary Acupuncture and has received her postgraduate degree after two years of studies and successful exams at the Scientific Association of Medical Acupuncturists of Greece (SAMAG). Her decision to engage in acupuncture has emerged from her need to broaden the range of diagnostic tools and therapeutic options that a modern Small Animal Clinic might offer.
She is the proud mom of a 4-year old boy, a dog and two cats. She devotes her spare time to her love of sewing while she also spends a lot of time with her husband and partner at the clinic, caring for stray animals. Her latest project has been the full renovation of the Kalamata clinic and her good taste has led to many positive comments among friends and customers.
