Elena has a background in psychology laying a great foundation to build a tailored design that reflects her clients style.  After earning a B.A. in Psychology, Elena completed a B.F.A. in Interior Design from CIDA-Accredited Design Institute of San Diego.

After gaining experience and refining her design aesthetic at a few boutique interior design firms that specialized in commercial and residential projects, Elena founded Woodhouse Creek Design in 2015.

As the principal designer, Elena's distinctive style blends classic elements with clean lines, texture, and quiet elegance to create relaxed, dynamic spaces. She believes a well designed interior is collected, refined, and timeless but ultimately represents who her clients are and tells their story. Elena guides her clients through the design process, resulting in a personalized one-of-a-kind space.
