Dr. Buddeberg was drawn to medicine because of her fascination with how the human body works. She is in good company—there are many other physicians in her extended family. She loves to travel and considers Munich her second second home. One day, she hopes to go on safari in Africa.

In her free time, Dr. Buddeberg likes to garden and do crafts. She teaches confirmation at her church. Of her three children, one daughter is planning to go into medicine as an anesthesiologist and her oldest son wants to study psychology. Her younger son is considering a career as an architect---if a career in soccer doesn’t materialize!
