Growing up in Sicily, Santina always had a passion for interiors and fashion coupled with a strong business sense that, in time, translated into an ability to successfully establish and manage her own business.

In January of 2016, she took a leap. Santina left a successful career in IT and Marketing to found Stage It for Success, where she put her interior design skills to use by staging homes in a way that appeals to most buyers and gives the best first impression.
