Lucas Rael



Lucas-150x250Lucas is a third generation Menaul graduate. Born and raised in Questa, New Mexico, and the youngest of four, he was humbled and privileged to carry on the tradition of attending the Menaul School as his father and Grandmother did as a boarding student. With a strong foundation from his education at Menaul, Lucas received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree from New Mexico State University where he graduated with honors.

Inspired by his grandparents as entrepreneurs he developed a true passion for business. He is currently a small business owner and President of Ambitions Consulting Group in Albuquerque. Ambitions is a consulting firm that focuses on providing solutions to organizations that help them achieve efficiencies otherwise not possible because of a lack of resources, time or expertise. Ambitions serves the legal industry, local governments, non-profits and other private sector clients. Prior to forming Ambitions, Lucas joined his brother and helped to found and build the law firm of Robles, Rael & Anaya, P.C., where he served as Director of Operations for over 10 years.

He strongly attributes the values and lessons that have helped him succeed in life directly to the unique experiences and educational foundation from attending Menaul as well as the close guidance of his parents and family growing up in a small, close-knit community.
