I like helping people.
Since 2002, as the principal of MsJones Design, Erika Jones-Clary has developed and facilitated web solutions for international nonprofit and public affairs/relations organizations. A multi-talented web project manager, designer and developer, she is proficient with many CMS such as WordPress, Drupal and NationBuilder. She has the unique ability to translate “tech mumbo jumbo” to “liberal arts speak”.
MsJones Design projects have included global education regarding the mining effects on native communities in Brazil, community outreach to gather support for a $2.5 billion dollar hospital project in San Francisco and building a comprehensive online insurance resource library for natural disaster survivors.
In 2015, she moderated a panel for the California Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce during the 4th Annual State of Small Business event at the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose. Discussions explored innovative technology solutions for small business in California.
In 2008, the Mayor’s Certificate of Honor was presented to Erika by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom for her leadership role with Project Homeless Connect. Erika was awarded a 2007 Webby Honoree for her work as the primary web designer for Link TV’s “The People Choose” political web site.
She volunteers often and mentors young emerging designers and developers. Erika believes strongly in Ben Franklin’s maxim: Do well by doing good.
