Christie grew up in White Rock B.C. and now resides in Vancouver. Her exotic looks come from her father (who is from Belize) and her British mother, a flight attendant and runner up to Miss Richmond. Christie and her two younger sisters Nikki and Paige grew up dancing until she focused on her acting career and changed her priorities. Christie considers herself fortunate to have been coached by some amazing people including Ingrid Torrance, Lee Kilton Smith, Akiko Morrison.
Christie enjoys an active lifestyle with yoga and dance, as well running and hiking with her dog, a Lab, along the Vancouver seawall and hiking trails. She also uses the Tracy Anderson Method of exercise used by other celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, and Courteney Cox. Although writing is now a hobby, one day she hopes to have a book published and is working on a screenplay that she plans to bring to life.
