Cherise is a DC native and began as a volunteer and student with Byte Back in 2011. She found teaching very rewarding and went on to serve as an AmeriCorps instructor at Byte Back for two years, teaching PC for Beginners, Office Track, Access, Excel, Website Design, Online Tools, and workshops. After a brief time away, Cherise was drawn again to Byte Back’s mission and started as an administrative assistant in June 2015. She earned her bachelor’s in computer engineering technology from Capitol Technology University (formerly Capitol College) and worked at the Office of the Chief Technology Officer as a web producer. Cherise’s interests vary from foreign cultures and languages – American Sign Language, Korean, Japanese, and Spanish – to Korean music and Japanese anime.
