Growing up near the Spreewald, also known as the “Green Venice” of Germany, was wonderful. As an adolescent she fell in love with paddle boating on the Spree river. The Spreewald is a UNESCO biosphere reserve comprised of 200 canals stretching 1300 Km in length, full of unimaginable culture and food.
After she moved to the USA she became an avid fan of canoeing and life along the shoreline. Heike and her husband John have lived in Clinton for the last 18 years. They are the proud parents of daughter Noelle an avid equestrian, and horse enthusiast.
