To begin with, Hefner is the daughter of Mildred Williams and Hugh Hefner; her parents separated when she was five years old. When her mother remarried, the family moved to Wilmette, Illinois, where she matriculated from New Trier High School. She attended the National Music Camp in Interlochen during the summers from 1964 to 1969, and Christie graduated from Brandeis University earning a Bachelor’s degree in English and American Literature in 1974.

Regarding her professional career, she began working for Playboy after her graduation. After four years of work, she was promoted to the position of vice-president, then in 1982, Christie was appointed as the president of Playboy Enterprises, and served as the president of the board and CEO from 1988. The company acquired other adult – oriented businesses such as Spice Network and ClubJenna. In 2008, she issued a memo to employees on efforts to coordinate the operations of the company, including the elimination of the DVD division. At the end of 2008, Hefner announced plans to resign from her post as the CEO of Playboy as of the 31st January 2009. Mrs. Hefner said that Barack Obama as the following President of the USA had inspired her to do more charity work, and that the decision to give up her post was personal. In the middle of 2011, she was named the CEO of Canyon Ranch Enterprises, a company that operates six resort spa destinations and a website that provides advice on health and welfare.

Concerning her philanthropic efforts, Hefner launched the First Amendment Award in honour of her father Hugh Hefner, and helped to raise $30 million to build the CORE Center in Chicago, the first facility for people with AIDS to open in the Midwestern United States.

Finally, in the personal life of Christie Hefner, she married the former Illinois senator William A. Marovitz who is also a real estate agent and lawyer in 1995; they did not have kids. Marovitz was sued by the USA Securities and Exchange Commission in 2012 for alleged use of insider information for illegal trade in shares of Playboy, a matter settled out of court. The couple separated in 2011 and divorced in 2013.

3Some, but much of my money is tied up in Playboy stock.
4The very first stock I bought right out of college was Berkshire Hathaway.
5I don't know what a world would be like if you do away with sexy images.
6It's important not to limit the amount of their own money that candidates can spend, but to give other people access to enough money to run competitive races.
7I defend the right of almost everything to be published... because I think that you're better off in trusting the marketplace than allowing other people to make that decision.
8But maybe because the dot-com world gives people positions at a younger age, and many women are prominent in this business, it will help change the view about who can run big companies.

10I expected to go into journalism or law.
