• Hi, I'm Raquel Cool

    I am part of the Internal Communications team at Plantronics. I'm passionate about communication, storytelling and design.


    My first job was answering calls at a crisis hotline at age 19. Working gracefully under pressure has been a common thread in my career. I have written for CEOs, NYT bestselling authors, Fortune 500 companies and Nobel Prize winner Desmond Tutu. My background is in tech journalism, but I have also driven marketing campaigns for nonprofit initiatives, including Hospice of Santa Cruz County. I am also represented by New York literary agency Writers House.


    Volunteer work

    I am a founding member of We Are Egg Donors, a women's health organization and global conversation among more than 1,500 egg donors in 12+ countries. Founded by an attorney and two writers, today WAED is proud to partner with Dr. Diane Tober of San Francisco State University to support her international research initiative.
