She studied at the Free State University and obtained her degree Cum Laude in 1996. Christelle lived and worked in Kimberley, later in Port Elizabeth and currently in Cape Town.

Christelle was elected, unopposed, as President of the Association of South African Quantity Surveyors during the board meeting that took place on the 31st July 2019 in Cape Town. Christelle previously served as Vice-president of the ASAQS.

She says: "I enjoy reading a good thriller, do some sewing and can also play the piano. I still enjoy water skiing but of course were better at that in my younger years!

The fact that I enjoyed maths and accounting at school led me to the decision to become a Quantity Surveyor."

She continues: "I am honoured by the opportunity to be of service to the QS profession and would like to see the ASAQS moving from strength to strength in meaningfull, stronger relationships with all the different role players in the Construction Industry. Thus growing and building, not only our profession but our Industry, to new heights and standards."

Christelle follows in the footsteps of a Life Member of the ASAQS, Prof. Gaye le Roux, who was elected to this prestiguous position in 1987.
