Prassas is a storyteller at heart. With her Broadcast Journalism degree from Boston University, Prassas enjoys bringing other people's stories to life. The documentary IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH was a gift that Prassas was given by her main character --the late Marilyn Maneely. Shooting inside the window of Maneely's life has allowed Prassas to attach a human face to a social and political issue. Her goal with her first feature-length film is to create visual opportunity for people to look outside their own eyes, minds and lives. The building blocks for her career came from her experience as a scriptwriter for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, a producer for WEEI Sports Talk Radio, a feature writer for Sports Club Magazine and her current position at Reuters, the World's News Leader.
