Melissa
Santiago

Social Media Strategist

Melissa hails from the “other” Sunshine State, Florida, with a brief stop in Los Angeles, where she never learned to ‘play it cool’ when she met people like Spike Jonez at parties. Prior to her arrival in California, she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Art from Florida State University.

Melissa has been fascinated with social media since its first incarnation in 1997 when her typing skills were remarkably improved by endless chat binges on AOL Instant Messenger. She managed to wrangle all of her social media prowess into getting paid to represent brands online (much to her mother’s surprise, who still asks, “what is a twitter?”).

Her favorite food is coffee and not unlike her pug, her energy level is either unstoppably excited or nap time — with very little range in between.

After a year of working at MUH-TAY-ZIK |HOF-FER as the Netflix Community Manager, she now works within our social strategy team as a content distribution strategist.
