Bio“My Dad came to America from Greece with $20 to his name and started The Robin Inn. The Italian eatery is a popular family restaurant in the Fan. At the age of ten, I worked at the restaurant washing dishes and mopping floors.
Now, The Robin Inn is managed by my sister, Niki Loupassi. My dad taught me the importance of hard work and giving back to the community.
I graduated from St. Christopher’s School in 1985, Washington and Lee in 1989 and University of Richmond Law School in 1992. I clerked for The Honorable James B. Wilkinson in the Circuit Court.
After Law School, I passed on joining a big law firm. My conscience led me in a different direction. I decided to give back to the community that had so blessed our family. With crime destroying our communities, I decided to go to work as a prosecutor– locking up child abusers, drug dealers, drunk drivers and murderers.
I grew up in Richmond where I learned the value of a dollar from working in my dad’s restaurant. Hyde and I have been married almost ten years and we are raising three wonderful children, Doxey, Stewart, and Manoli.
Over a span of six years, I worked as a Prosecutor for Hanover County, the City of Richmond and Multi-jurisdictional Grand Jury for Chesterfield, Henrico, Hanover and the City of Richmond.
During my time as prosecutor, I locked up some of our area’s most violent criminals – including sexual predators, murderers, rapists, burglars and drunk drivers.”
I was first elected to the House of Delegates in 2007. As a Delegate, I have focused on finding solutions to the issues that you care about- supporting our schools to ensure our children receive a top-quality education, helping businesses create new jobs and opportunities, and keeping our families safe.”
