Raquel Hinson

Raquel is our Senior Account Executive. Her favorite things to do are talk and drink coffee, which when combined is a force to be reckoned with. Oh yeah speaking of forces, she's a pretty big fan of Stars Wars (and all other geeky things) too. Her motto with bringing in new business for RocketFuel is "Do or do not, there is no try."

Raquel (not Rachel, she'll shoot you with a nerf gun) is RocketFuel's Senior Account Executive, although she really wishes her title could be changed to Sales Jedi. If it's quiet in the office, it usually means Raquel is out at a meeting, networking event, or on an emergency coffee run. Mostly, Raquel brings in new business and builds relationships for RocketFuel. 

Before joining RocketFuel, Raquel spent most of her collegiate and postgraduate years at Starbucks, honing her sales skills and developing a pretty serious dependence on coffee. Throughout college, Raquel gained experience as a marketing and public relations intern for Mahaffey Fabric Structures, as an on-air personality and morning show producer at Q107.5 WHBQ FM, and as a writing and social media intern at the Memphis CVB for the I Love Memphis blog. She earned her Bachelors of Communications and Fine Arts in Journalism and Public Relations from the University of Memphis (Go Tigers!).

Besides drinking coffee and working, Raquel spends her time with her family, playing with her kids, podcasting about tv shows over at Loose Lips Sync Ships, cooking, hosting trivia, reading, running, and binge watching Netflix every time she finds a new show.
