Raquel Shutt, MBA, CWP is the Principal Consultant at Advantage WSI. Raquel is an experienced business owner with extensive business management experience in the hospitality and service sectors with a focus on customer experiences.
Raquel earned her MBA from Loyola University of Maryland. During her coursework, she identified a market need for reliable, professional wedding and event coordination services. In 2002, Raquel took the leap of faith and founded her own event planning company specializing in the niche of weddings.
Under her management, the company became the highest rated firm in the nation (according to WeddingWire) and experienced steady growth in clients, staff and revenue. Not without the usual twists and turns, of course!
After 17 years of exciting experiences and managing the day to day of a busy event planning company, Raquel decided it was the right time to exit the company in 2019.
Raquel learned so much during her time as a business owner and the many hats she wore. She wanted to leverage those past experiences to help other business owners. She looks forward to meeting you and learning about your desired destination.
