Raffaela was born in Smithtown, NY and raised in the small town of Sayville, New York on Long Island. At an early age it was obvious Raffaela wanted to perform; she could sing before she could talk. Raffaela has formal education and training with the Berkshire Theatre Group and the CAP 21 acting conservatory. She graduated from the Long Island Performing Arts and Technical High School and attended Sarah Lawrence College, where she studied liberal arts and performance as the only freshman in her year to be accepted into senior and graduate-level courses.

Raffaela has also trained at the studios of Susan Batson and Ivana Chubbuck, and has been involved in over 50 community and regional theatrical productions as an actress and singer. In 2011 Raffaela wrote and recorded her first EP with Grammy award-winning producers Frank and Christian Berman. The music video for her original track "So What" was accepted into the Dances With Films festival (2015), Rahway International Film Festival (2015), was a jury selection at the International Family Film Festival (2015), and won best song in a music video at the Hollywood & Vine Film Festival (2015). She also wrote and starred in the short film "Taking A Chance on Love" in 2014, which was nominated for best short film at Dances With Kidz (2015) and an audience choice award at the Hollywood & Vine Film Festival (2015). Raffaela is presently in development with InRage Entertainment and Sony/ATV producers & songwriters, Automatic and Ebony Vanderveers where she is in post production for her music video and single, HURRICANE, featuring artist Chris Redd (Popstar, Never Stop, Never Stopping) written by the Vanderveers and Elise Legrow.
