Raquel Ronzone

Senior Business Development Manager at the CVI Center at Perkins


Raquel is the Senior Business Development Manager at the CVI Center at Perkins, where she focuses on collaborations with educators, medical professionals and others who support people with visual impairments, to strengthen the center’s ability to deliver large-scale impact and tangible change for people with CVI.

Joining Perkins continues her career in social impact and her partnership with values-driven organizations. Most recently, at local boutique agency Liberty Concepts, she partnered with clients — including higher education, nonprofits, and state and federal legislators — on their digital strategy to drive organizational growth and expand business opportunities.

Previously, at the ACLU of Massachusetts, she managed crisis and proactive communications during two presidencies. While serving with AmeriCorps, she supported a tech apprenticeship program in her hometown Philadelphia.

Raquel’s work has spanned a range of issues with personal significance — racial justice, LGBTQ+ advocacy, immigrants’ rights, environmental sustainability — and Perkins’ mission is no exception: She has retinopathy of prematurity, and is proud to work in service of people with visual impairments.
