Hello! My name is Rachel Cherry. My pronouns are she/her.
I am a web engineer and consultant with over 16 years of experience, working primarily in higher education and enterprise-level environments. I am a focused specialist in digital accessibility and performant front-end web engineering.
I work with organizations to remediate and address their digital accessibility barriers and to develop, educate, and foster sustainable and accessible web practices. I also provide custom web development and consulting services.
I am the Lead Digital Accessibility Developer for the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York. As a member of the University's central digital accessibility team, I serve as the lead technical expert for the University's digital accessibility compliance program.
I am the Director of Technology and Design for Equal Made. 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 am the Founder and Past-President of WPCampus, a non-profit organization and community focused on accessibility and WordPress in the world of higher education.
I love to travel and explore my new city (Rochester, NY). I play in the local kickball league. 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.
