Q: Can a person who sells her auctioneer services conduct business and hold auctions if the company isn't bonded by the sos

If she cannot legally provide or sell her services to another because she isn't properly bonded, then wouldn't any auctions she's held be illegal to do and void any contracts between her and the buyers of said illegal (fraudulent) auctions?

A: This sounds like a matter of government regulation. That would be between her and state licensing agency. She will likely face a fine. It should not affect the validity of the auction sales.
