Vestry Bios – Raquel Mc Laughlin

Raquel Mc Laughlin

moved to Monrovia in 2015 and started attending Saint Luke’s in 2016 where she felt warmth and love. “Saint Luke’s is a special gem, bringing you organically closer to God’s Love.”

Raquel is single with no kids. You may see her walking the neighborhood with her best friend “Mama”, her rescue Golden Lab Mix dog.

Raquel grew up and was raised in the San Gabriel Valley, attending Alhambra High School and then California State University, Fullerton, where she studied communications and journalism. She started working with KTLA Tribune in her senior year of college.

Raquel is a business partner at Vintage Treasures & Antiques in Arcadia, which she launched in 2013 with her mother and best friend Jeanette. She enjoys coordinating Vintage Fashion Shows – always a fun passion.

Raquel is a volunteer for the Kiwanis organization. Children’s causes are also close to her heart. Her hobbies include antique hunting, coordinating vintage media shoots, indie films, hiking and biking. She is a foodie and enjoys art and all dog related fun!
