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 designing and coding my own projects!
