Hi, I’m Raquel!

Ryan and I co-founded The Senior Soup in September 2022 and even got behind the mic for our podcast.

I spent over 15 years in pharmaceutical sales and various leadership roles with different organizations.

In January 2022, I launched Amada Senior Care, a senior care agency in Montgomery County. My mission is to provide seniors with outstanding care wherever they call home.

I quickly noticed that seniors needed help navigating the maze of available resources, which led Ryan and I to create The Senior Soup.

I’m a proud University of Tennessee alum with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism.

Living in Maryland with my lovely husband, Greg, and our two kids, my heart truly is invested in helping our older adult community navigate their healthcare journeys.

I’m here to share the best of Maryland’s senior resources with you!

Co-Founder & Podcast Co-Host

Hey there, I’m Ryan!

I teamed up with wonderful friend and colleague Raquel in September 2023 to bring The Senior Soup to life in 2022 – and you can even catch me co-hosting our podcast.

I am a healthcare marketing professional at Ennoble Care, where we’re passionate about delivering home-based primary care for older adults living in Maryland and Washington, D.C.

My academic journey took me through Duquesne University, where I bagged a B.A. in Political Science, and later, I secured an M.B.A. from Mount St. Mary’s University.

My early career adventures brought me to the corridors of Capitol Hill as a congressional staffer.

From there, I delved into corporate communications and public affairs and led a few business development and sales teams. 

I share my life with my amazing wife, Kim, and our two kids.

Like Raquel, I am here to support Maryland seniors as a free resource to them.
