Christa was the second child of four; two boys and two girls, and lived with busy parents. Her parents were always working. Christa wasn't interested in wrestling at first. In the beginning, she wanted to be in a band. At age 18 after high school, she sang in a rock band while her friend Sarah played bass. But after a year, Sarah left the band to train for wrestling. Christa later left that band due to jerk band members (and not being able to find a new bassist). She fronted two more bands until January of 2011 when she left the last band and decided to do what her friend was doing: wrestling.
Wrestling CareerChista began training in January of 2011. She trained for eight months before she was ready. Because Sarah was in there once, Christa tried to go into WWE. But for some odd reason due to her wrestling style, Vince did not accept her. In December of 2011, Sting and Dixie Carter from Impact Wrestling contacted her and hired her after Sarah suggested her to them. On the December 29th episode of Impact, Christa debuted, sucessfully defeating Gail Kim. She was revealed as Sarah's tag team partner for the Genesis PPV.

On May 23rd, Christa lost the Knockouts title to Chelsea. She had a rematch at Slammiversary, but did not regain.

In the weeks leading up to WWE's Royal Rumble pay-per-view, strange video packages would play on the titantron after Divas matches featuring quick strange images ending with a pair of eyes shown on the screen. On January 19th, the Raw before Royal Rumble, the video package played once again, but a countdown began at the end. At Royal Rumble after the Bellas defeated Natalya and Paige, the clock counted down on the titantron and Christa made her WWE debut by attacking the Bellas, laying them out. Her assault on the twins continued for the next few weeks and at WWE Fast Lane after Nikki Bella's victory over Paige, Christa attacked Brie followed by a stare down with Nikki. As Nikki checked on Brie, Christa smirked and made her way to the back.
At Wrestlemania 31, Christa walked out and distracted the Bellas in their match, helping AJ Lee and Paige get the win. On the April 4th edition of Smackdown, Christa made her in-ring debut against Cameron. She was easily able to beat her.

At Battleground, Christa and Chelsea faced the FES and Christa pinned Lindsay, who was Women's champion, for the win.
Personal LifeChrista is the second child of four. She has had a habit of making bad choices in the past, especially when Sarah wasn't around. At age 21, she was raped by an abusive boyfriend and didn't date for years since that happened. She did end up having a child, but her older brother Curtis and his wife Lena are taking care of the child due to Christa not being ready (her decision). Christa and Sarah are very close and have known each other since sixth grade. Christa used to drink a little when she was a teenager, but now she's straightedge, except when she's in a really angry mood.

On August 16th, Christa announced on her twitter that she'll be appearing on OVW to support Crimson.
