Christena Ellender

Interiors Coordinator

Hi, I am Christena. I grew up on the desert side of Washington State where I spent a lot of my childhood playing sports and camping on Mount Rainier. My parents loved to travel, and because of this we moved around to 5 different states. This experience cultivated my ability to see and understand others’ perspectives and ideas, which has helped me in my career.

I graduated from The Institute of Interior Design through Southwest Florida College with my BA of Interior Architecture and Design. In addition, I earned my Kitchen and Bath Certificate from NKBA. I have specialized in custom cabinetry for 5 years before transitioning over to health care design with Studio+. This transition has allowed me to be blessed with the opportunity to marry my two passions of interior design and health and wellness.

When I am not working, you can most likely find me being active. I enjoy running, CrossFit, snowboarding, and basically anything outdoors. I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family and friends. At the end of the day, you can find me snuggling on the sofa with my cats and drinking a nice glass of wine.
