Meet the supervisor

Visitor Experience Manager Rachel Raizola​

I have been with the museum for 14 years and working with the community has always been important to me. Once I realized my passion for working with children in an non-profit setting I began my journey to grow at the Children’s Museum of Phoenix. When I began my career at CMoP, I made my self available to any department that would be open to cross train me. After my promotion through several roles within the museum, I transitioned fully into the educational realm and assisted with programming needs. Knowing my passion lies in customer facing roles, I was then promoted to Playologist Supervisor. After my growth in those areas, I showed an interest in taking on new challenges and was promoted to Visitor Experience Manager, where I oversee two different divisions within the same department. I hope to inspire new employees that growth is always a possibility if you are patient and hardworking.
