1. She's no dummy:
The 25-year-old graduated in 2007 from Emory University, where she was in the sorority AEPhi, and plans to apply to law school.
2. She's an East Coast transplant:
After college, the Greenwich, Conn., native moved west to Santa Barbara, where she worked at a store called Blue Bee and a law firm. She now also spends time in Park City.
3. She's been engaged:
Christie dated Connor Humphreys, also an Emory alum, after graduation, and the two were engaged at the beginning of last year. Though they planned a wedding at the Four Seasons in Santa Barbara, the couple split a few months ago.
4. Fashion is a passion:
Having grown up "very privileged," according to an old friend, Christie's wardrobe is to die for: think Herve Leger dresses and Christian Louboutin shoes.
5. She keeps a tight inner circle: The oldest of four, Christie has a close-knit group of girlfriends from the East and spends a lot of time with her family in Park City, even inviting her new boyfriend to join in on the fun, at their dinner at Ruth's Chris Jan. 10.
