Clare Parkinson

WordPress Developer

Clare is a third-generation geek, and has been building websites with database-driven content management backends since the 90’s, back when you had to build everything from the database up.

Clare enjoys building sites that make people’s jobs easier: from streamlining an admin panel to improving workflow for editors and translators, she’s always looking for a way to make a site easy to use and to build upon. Her specialty is the WordPress backend: getting all the parts to play nice together so the user experience is as simple as possible. She is a co-organizer for WordPress Naperville Meetup in Chicago’s western suburbs, where she frequently reminds all comers of the importance of regularly scheduled offsite backups.
