Cessie Alhambra, Design Assistant

Cessie Alhambra, Design Associate

A graduate of SF State’s interior design program, Cessie is passionate about bringing together creativity and the technical part of design. “I come from a dance background. I get a lot of my creativity from being a dancer. I also like working with the technical side of art. I love working on the computer, working with the software, and putting the creativity and the technical drawings together.” At Stonewood Walnut Creek, Cessie applies her twin passions to AutoCAD drawings and to the colors, textures and properties of Stonewood’s many design materials. When she’s not at work, Cessie spends her time hiking with her two dogs, and putting her dance skills to use in an occasional video shoot.

“My wife and I are still joyful with our brand new kitchen which was designed by Julie and her team. The level of service and professionalism, attention to detail, we received from her team was commendable. Julie more than delivered by listening, paying attention to our details and attending to all that she promised us to do. We will always recommend her to anyone who needs the same services.”
