Mizzou alumna uses web design expertise to give back to engineering, community

Erica Martin, BS CS/IT ’08, has had a whirlwind couple of years. Her business, Pixel Jam Digital, celebrated its fifth anniversary this summer with a current roster of roughly 100 clients from across the globe seeking website and digital design services. Last year, she launched an online database of medical, social and other resources. And she’s been to a few awards ceremonies — Pixel Jam Digital was named a Columbia Area Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year finalist this summer, and — much to her delight — Martin received the “Nerd of the Year” award from a local non-profit.
