Vinnetta Raines joined House of Ruth as the Staff Accountant in June 2021. Upon graduating Benjamin Banneker Academic High School in Washington DC, she attended North Carolina A&T State University (Aggie Pride!). She earned both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Accounting. After college, she moved to New York City for eight years to pursue a job in accounting.

During her accounting career, she has enjoyed the great opportunity to work for the world’s most highly regarded accounting firms, the nation’s premier sporting leagues, and one America’s top transit authorities. In these positions, it was her privilege to learn every aspect of Financial Statements.

Born and raised in the southeastern part of Washington DC, she in fact grew up on Pennsylvania Avenue, down the street from House of Ruth’s Kidspace Child and Family Development Center. She started community service with her parents at an early age, giving back to people across the globe. She is now happy to combine her passion of accounting with her natural service of giving.
