JACQUELINE
Founder & Principle Designer

Growing up in a Navy family provided Jacqueline with the opportunity to live in almost every region of the United States. With each new city they moved to, Jacqueline’s 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; all of which inspired her to choose a career in design and architecture. She 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. 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 while embodying the ethos of the people who live and work within them, all while maintaining the historic charm that makes older properties special. When asked what the most rewarding part of her work is, she states “Making my clients’ renovation and remodeling dreams come true and bringing joy to their lives!”

SANTINO
Operations Manager

From a very early age, it was apparent that Santino was meant to be a businessman. What he enjoys most about it is the careful planning and strategic decision making involved in running a successful company. From managing the office, helping his team answer the phones, pursuing new business prospects, spearheading the marketing campaign and balancing the books, he does it all. 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
Design Assistant

Born and raised in Los Angeles to Indian parents, 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 planned to pursue a career in interior design. After finishing up her general education at a community college, Deepa transferred to San Diego State University to complete her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. As a student at SDSU she had the opportunity to work on valuable projects such as designing a sustainable restaurant for the homeless, a contemporary Hindu temple, and even a housing project for low-income communities in Tijuana, Mexico. During her senior year of university, Deepa was hired by Jacqueline for a summer internship where she gained hands-on project experience and enhanced her technical skills in drafting, material and product selection, and 3D rendering. After completing her education at SDSU in December 2018, she gladly took the opportunity to continue working with Jacqueline at Historia Design, contributing her creative ideas and valuable skillset as Design Assistant.

VERONICA
Design Intern

Since an early age, Veronica always enjoyed helping her dad re-imagine and remodel their family homes and in doing so, grew up familiar with visiting furniture and tile showrooms but never fully realized that interior design was a passion she could turn into a career. After graduating high school Veronica attended Cal State Fullerton as a communications major. Two and a half years into her college studies she decided it was finally time to follow her heart and pursuit Interior Design as her major. In January of 2017 she transferred to Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach and is now nearing the end of her studies, on track to earn her bachelor’s degree by the end of 2019! Being a design intern at Historia is her first work experience in the world of architecture and interior design and she is excited to continue to learn and grow as a designer in professional practice.

“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”
