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.

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 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 audience choice award at the Hollywood & Vine Film Festival (2015). Raffaela was in development with InRage Entertainment and Sony/ATV producers/songwriters, Automatic and Ebony Vanderveer, with whom she released her music video and single, HURRICANE, featuring artist Chris Redd (SNL) written by the Vanderveers and Elise Legrow. She recently starred in the upcoming feature film, Reach alongside Garrett Clayton and Jordan Doww. 

Most recently, Raffaela's Pizza and Wine will run at the New York Theatre Festival which she will star in and has co-written.
