Jacqueline grew up in a Navy family and with each new city they moved to, her parents made it a priority to take her to visit the local museums, historical sites and famous buildings which rooted her passion in art, architecture and history. Although Jacqueline originally set out to be a teacher, she quickly changed majors and began her undergrad studies in architecture at Cosumnes River College, later transferring to California State University Sacramento receiving a BA in Interior Architecture. After working in the industry for a number of years on projects ranging from single family houses to a brand new high tech sports and entertainment arena, she went on to earn a master’s degree in Historic Preservation from the Boston Architectural College (BAC). With her combined degrees and well over a decade of experience in both residential and commercial projects she founded Historia Design and Consulting with the philosophy that any property can be modernized for the way we live and work today, all while maintaining existing historic charm and embodying the wonderful personalities of those who dwell within. Jacqueline shines in not only applying her expertise to thoughtful and creative design planning, but also in her genuine care for giving clients her best to make their projects a success! During her free time Jacqueline enjoys giving back to the community; serving on the Long Beach Heritage Board of Directors, the Rotary Club of Long Beach, Precious Lamb Preschool, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and the Alumni Council for the BAC. During her down time she loves hanging out with her husband and son, reading, gardening and grooving to her favorite hip hop jams!
From a very early age, it was apparent that Santino was meant to be a businessman. When he got his first job as a teenager, not only did he love earning money (of course) but he also enjoyed the challenge that everyday problem solving presented. He honed his leadership and business skills during his years as a taekwondo instructor where he taught martial arts and took on business responsibilities in sales, marketing and operations. When his wife Jacqueline decided to start a business to combine her passions in design, architecture and historic preservation; she found Santino to naturally be the best fit to oversee the firm’s operations due to his business savvy, polite demeanor, and professionalism. What he enjoys most about working at Historia Design is the careful planning and strategic decision making involved in running a successful company. From managing the office accounts, processing payroll, and going to bat for the best interest of Historia’s valued clients; he’s always happy to lend a helping hand to the team. Believe it or not, on his “days off” Santino spends his time working on his ultimate passion in music as an Audio Engineer. So when he’s not busy running Historia’s daily operations, you can find him in the studio recording, mixing and mastering what could be the next hit record you hear on the radio.
Linus was born in Sacramento, California and as a little puppy he somehow lost his way back home and was sent to live in an animal shelter. When he was three months old he was rescued by his current family and joined his new fur brother Chulo, and was later joined by his little (and we mean tiny) fur brother, Gatsby in his forever home. Fast forward to today and he is now living his best life on the sunny beaches of Long Beach! When he’s not busy at the office greeting the staff, begging for snacks at lunchtime and getting cuddles during breaks, you can find him out and about in the community bringing joy to everyone he meets.

“I had the pleasure of leasing to and selling two of Jacqueline’s properties. Having shown hundreds, perhaps thousands, of properties as a landlord and realtor, I have yet to be as impressed as I have been by Jacqueline’s panache and sense of style. Her properties really did sell themselves. All I had to do was open the door.”
“Jacqueline is sweet, organized, professional, and creative. She believes in building a relationship with her clients so she can actualize their vision. She is easy to work with and she will capture the essence of your space. I am proud to call her my friend. Thank you for making MY Pediatrics and Respiratory Care Clinic a safe and welcoming place for the community. You made it sparkle and shine”
