In 1995, Celina founded Tagline Communications, an award-winning design studio, after studying Graphic Communications at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, working in the industry as a printing pre-press manager, and freelancing for top advertising agencies. As CEO, she is committed to helping companies grow and develop through the use of effective branding, advertising, design, and visual communications. With over 20 years in the creative field, she has experience working on projects for The White House, Smithsonian Institute, Starwood Resorts, Deluxe Entertainment, City of Los Angeles, Ascent Media, Coldwell Banker, Boy Scouts of America, The Righteous Brothers, and Hilton, to name a few.

Celina's artwork has been exhibited at UCLA, Artshare LA, Le Cordon Bleu Pasadena, and Farmani Gallery, and her paintings are currently on display at California ISO. In 2006, she worked with the Smithsonian Institute to produce and photograph a multimedia art exhibit entitled, I Am Today's Filipino, which documented the stories of 100 Southern California Filipinos through photography and film, 100 years after the first significant wave of Filipino migration to the United States.
