A brief introduction

Hi, I’m Melanie, a product manager with a design and web-dev background. Currently, I’m helping enable web teams on the Jamstack at Netlify.

My core personal mission is to empower people to make interesting, useful, and inclusive things on the web…and I still love making my own side projects!

Recent product work

  • Automatic deploy subdomains

    Developers can add a domain suffix to pre-production environments, enabling those previews to be automatically spun up at their custom subdomain. Benefits include brand safety and security, and enablement of third-party integrations that better mimics production.

  • Netlify Drawer for branch deploys

    The Netlify Drawer enables teams to collaborate on pre-production changes, but previously was only available to Deploy Previews triggered by PRs. Making them available on branch deploys fosters collaboration in teams with branch-based deployment flows.
