Charlene Harrison attended both elementary and high school in Las Vegas. Her biography states that she never went to college, just like ex-husband Corey Harrison did not. It is speculated that their high school love distracted them and prevented them from continuing their education.

Like Charlene, Corey also attended both his elementary and high school in Las Vegas. He was never interested in college since he showed interest in working at his father’s and grandfather's pawn shop for the rest of his life. He had been working there since he was nine years old and did not want to leave his family to head off to college.

It seems that college education is not in his blood, as his grandfather also did not attend college, and his father was a high school dropout. His lack of college education has not appeared to affect his financial success in life, as the family’s Pawn Shop has earned millions for the family through their reality TV program.

She worked for some time at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas while she was in a relationship with Corey. While working there, she did not want to become a cast member on the TV show. She was fine with working behind the scenes and out of view.

Charlene has an online store that she promotes on her Twitter and Instagram accounts called Sweet Tempered. In here store she sells homemade accessories like checkbook covers, calendars, aprons, hair accessories, baby items, and bags among other items. Her experience at the pawn shop gave her an idea of what items people are drawn to.
