Jennifer Dubbaneh is the owner of Calista Kitchen & Bath. She first fell in love with the home industry as a 19-year old real estate intern during college. That was the beginning of what would eventually become a passion as well as a profession in interior construction and design.
Jennifer was later recruited to the Washington, DC metro area by a residential contractor who gave her the opportunity to learn all facets of the business. Jennifer was instrumental in the doubling the company’s business and taking it from a small family-run business to a sizeable enterprise able to add a second location. Under her direction, she and the company earned various awards and recognition for her work and design vision. It was during that experience that Jennifer found her passion for design as well as construction.
In 2018, Jennifer returned home to the Punta Gorda area to launch a construction and design studio. Her goal for Calista Kitchen and Bath is to provide a “big city remodeling experience” with a “small town atmosphere” which means she is setting the bar ever higher for herself and her company. In just the first year of business, Calista Kitchen & Bath was awarded as one of the top kitchen and bath showrooms in Charlotte county.
Today, Jennifer works on many projects for her own clients, interior designers, and builder in the area. She’s collaborated on multiple projects to include a 39 unit luxury condo building, multiple custom homes, and small commercial spaces to bring her unique vision to fruition.
Jennifer joined the Charlotte DeSoto Building Industry Association in 2018 and has been elected as the Secretary of the CDBIA Next Gen Council.
