Her career in professional journalism began at age fifteen. A correspondent for LIFE Magazine in Mexico (1962-64), syndicated travel writer, translator, scholar, film and art critic, magazine editor, lecturer, photographer, gastronome, she has also worked for ad agencies, public relations firms, craft centers and archaeological projects. She has produced close to 30 books, a number of them published in both English and Spanish, which have evolved out of her extensive research and travel, first among Maya sites in Mexico and then distant, often related, cultures around the world, with a special focus on archaeology and history. Her articles on the Greek world in the Sunday Travel Section of the now-defunct Mexico City News, published during the 70’s and 80’s, earned her the title of Honorary Cultural Attaché for the Greek Embassy in Mexico, and the nickname of “Athenea”.
Her career in the arts, and particularly as a sculptress, won her the “Superior Academic Order” from the Accademio Internazionale Greci-Marino in Vinzaglio, Italy. In 2004 this order was raised to “Honorary National Councilor for Mexico” in recognition of her overall contribution to the arts, specifically in sculpture and letters. She is a member of the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) where she has served as a perennial member of the Media Relations Committee; and is a research consultant at the Institute for Maya Studies in Mexico. She serves on the Advisory Board of Exploring Solutions Past (ESP): The Maya Forest Alliance, with the El Pilar Archaeological Reserve for Maya Flora and Fauna in Belize. A resident of Mexico for over fifty years, she lives with her husband, designer and art restorer Tomás González, in Mexico City. She has two children, Fausto and Dushka Zapata.
