She has now enjoyed working at the Synagogue for twelve years.  Prior to joining the team at Central, Raquel attained an undergraduate degree in Pharmacology and Physiology, as well as a Masters degree in Pharmaceutical Technology and also worked as the Production Coordinator in a publishing company for two years. She has since transferred her attention from multiple national publications to a single community publication – the Central Magazine!
