Hi! My name is Rachel Cherry (she/her). I am a freelance software engineer and consultant focusing on online accessibility, front-end web development, and higher education/enterprise-level engineering.
I have over 15 years of experience in back and front-end web development and digital design, working primarily in higher education and enterprise-level environments. I have become a focused specialist in accessible and performant web development. I also work with organizations to remediate and address their online accessibility barriers and teach others how to be more inclusive on the web.
I am the Director of Technology and Design for Equal Made, an organization I co-founded with my partner and friend, Sara Clark. Our passion is to make the web an inclusive online experience. Let us know if you are looking for a partner to provide accessible, equitable, and sustainable software and services.
I love to travel and explore my city (I just moved to Rochester, NY). I start learning to play ice hockey soon, which will be a blast. I love to patronize restaurants serving delicious tacos. And I love to run lots of miles on my treadmill, especially since it means I can eat more delicious tacos.
I am currently re-designing and re-engineering my website and have removed some pages and functionality. I am not taking any new jobs at this time. My workload is 100% full. If you need to contact me, please use my Twitter account.
