A Glimpse Into her Personal Life

Christiane was born and raised in Cologne, Germany. She came to California as a teenager, and settled in Encinitas in 1988. Christiane’s healthy lifestyle includes hiking, cycling, reading, relaxing with friends and most recently spending time with her newly adopted pup, Maya.

Her passion for cycling has taken her to several beautiful places such as the Tuscany region in Italy, around Lake Tahoe, along the Big Sur coastline, through the national parks in Moab, Utah and most recently to the Grand Tetons. Cycling has also enabled her to engage in 100-mile fund raising events for the Best Buddies Organization and The Challenged Athletes Foundation.
