Early life and education

In 1989, Raiche was born in Montreal, Quebec. She completed a degree in law at the Université de Sherbrooke[1] and a master's degree in tax.[2]


Raiche began her career in law in 2012 practicing for the Quebec Bar Association. From 2012 to 2015, she worked in business law for a Montreal firm.[1] In 2015, Raiche changed her career and began working in sports for the Montreal Alouettes as an intern.[2] Later in the year, she became the coordinator of Football Administration for the Alouettes in December 2015.[3] Raiche's appointment to the Alouettes made her the first woman to become a part of the CFL since the hiring of Ottawa Roughriders general manager Jo-Anne Polak in 1988.[4]

Raiche was a coordinator until January 2017 when she was promoted to assistant general manager alongside Joe Mack for the Alouettes.[5] At the time, Raiche was the only woman assistant general manager in the CFL.[1] She remained with the Alouettes before resigning in December 2017.
