Raquel joined ISEP’s finance department in January of 2023 as a Staff Accountant. She is originally from Nassau, Bahamas, where she grew up in a culture that instilled the importance of a quality education. Raquel relocated to Tampa, Florida in 2019. She graduated from the University of Tampa with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting, and has plans to pursue a Master’s degree in Finance in the near future. Before ISEP, Raquel worked at The University of Tampa in Admissions. She also worked as a Student Ambassador and as a Coordinator for the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement. Between 2021 and 2022, she spearheaded an initiative called Spartan Mentors, in partnership with a non-profit agency, which allowed students to assist within the local community to facilitate afterschool enrichment lessons and homework assistance to youth from underrepresented communities.
