JACQUELINE
CEO | Principal

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 historic property can be modernized for the way we live and work today, all while maintaining the historic charm and embodying the wonderful personalities of those who dwell within. During her free time Jacqueline enjoys giving back to the community! She is proud to serve on the Long Beach Heritage Board of Directors, the Rotary Club of Long Beach, the St. Vincent de Paul Society and also serves on 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 tunes!

SANTINO
Operations Manager | Partner

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 enjoy earning money but also enjoyed the challenge that everyday problem solving presented. When his wife Jacqueline decided to start a business to pursue her passion in design, architecture and historic preservation; she found Santino to naturally be the best fit to oversee the firm’s operations. 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 to content creation; 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.

DEEPA
Junior Designer

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Deepa grew up to be fond of the arts, whether it be music, dance, or painting. She grew up watching shows like Extreme Makeover Home Edition, which made her feel inspired and happy to see a disadvantaged family come back to such a beautifully renovated home. When she became a senior in high school Deepa decided she wanted to pursue a career in interior design. She attended San Diego State University to receive a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design and graduated in December 2018. As soon as she graduated, she gladly took the opportunity to work with Jacqueline at Historia Design as Design Assistant and quickly worked her way up to Junior Designer. She believes the most rewarding part of her job is to see the sheer joy the client experiences when their house is renovated, a space that makes them feel happy and at peace. When she isn’t designing people’s dream homes, you can find her brunching at various restaurants that LA has to offer, trying to find inspiration in those spaces.

GLEANNE 
Design Assistant

Born and raised in Southern California, Gleanne grew an interest for design at a young age. She admired arts of all kinds, but never really thought of turning her passion into a career. After a semester as an Elementary Education major at Northern Arizona University, she came back home and decided to pursue her love for design. Throughout her undergrad years, she challenged herself and took on various projects such as designing a modern textile collection based on her Filipino culture and a conceptual condo at The Grand. In August 2020, she graduated and received her AA in Interior Design from FIDM. Shortly after, Gleanne was hired by Jacqueline as a Design Assistant. Throughout her time at Historia Design, she has already obtained various skills in Revit and material and product selection. Gleanne is eager to grow and expand her knowledge as she enters the industry.

JENNIFER 
Design Intern

Being inspired by all things design, Jennifer started her interior design career at age 20 in community college. This new journey sprung from her newest adventure of redesigning her completely white-walled room, and quickly bloomed into an admiration and appreciation for personal space. From there, her journey took her from Chino, California to Huntington Beach where she got accepted into Cal State Long Beach and will graduate in 2022. Her favorite part of design is being able to use her imagination to solve problems, as well as create custom spaces for each individual.

“LONG BEACH” LINUS
CFO (Chief Fun Officer)

Linus was born in Sacramento, California and when he was a 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 from another mother, Chulo, and was later joined by his little (and we mean tiny) fur brother, Gatsby. Fast forward to today and he is now living his best life on the sunny beaches of Long Beach and when he’s not busy at the office greeting the staff, begging for snacks at lunchtime and getting petted during breaks, you can find him out and about in the community bringing joy to everyone he meets.

Our Work

“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.”

CHUCK R.

“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”
