I’m Melanie.

I'm a designer with an affinity to recruit and retain underrepresented talent and building team dynamics through design operations.

Currently, I'm designing products for Community Integrity at Facebook.

Prior to Facebook, I lead product design at Doctor On Demand, and worked with companies like Shorebox, Honor, Google, CODE2040 and Telenav.

I founded Front & Center, a design mentorship program to support designers of color through advocacy, workshops, and mentorship.

You may have seen my article in Within Magazine, or in Helena Price's Techies Project discussing the tech debt communities of color, or maybe you've heard me on Design Details discussing self-awareness, inclusion and the challenges working in Silicon Valley as a black woman.

Let me know how I can be helpful.
