Early in life, Raquel moved from Columbia, MD to Chicago’s west suburbs where she forged great friendships through sports and school. Then, chasing a warmer climate and great food, she attended the University of Louisiana Lafayette where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business. Raquel relocated to Washington, DC where she has fallen for the culture, architecture, and diversity that the city offers.
Eager to give back, she has initiated a number of corporate community service projects to benefit a multitude of charities. Raquel enjoys spending time with her friends and family, traveling, sports, good steaks, blue crab, cereal, and ice cream!
