She later attended Solent University in Southampton, which was also where she met Aaron Dean. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts Valuation and started working as an auctioneer. Christina’s love for antiques and auctions comes from her mother. Even though her mother was a florist by trade, she was a huge auction fanatic and would often take Christina to several auctions.
