Saltas was born in Salt Lake City and since childhood has been fully immersed in Utah's vibrant Greek community through dance, sports, and youth activities. Those activities eventually took her to regional and national Greek events that helped open her eyes to the greater Greek-American community. She was a camper and counselor at Ionian Village in Bartholomio, Greece where she first learned to love, of all things, vegetables.
With a degree in Exercise and Sports Science from the University of Utah, Saltas is a full time personal trainer with a specialization in training the aging body. Her passion for health and fitness led her to starting a popular fitness blog which eventually morphed into stories and blogs about healthy foods as well which, of course, means healthy Greek foods. Her blog then led her to compiling her work into her first book, All You Can Greek: Food, Life, Travel, which is available online.
