Sami is an 6ft tall, Aries sun and native New Yorker turned Cali convert. Sami Housman is a manager, producer, and consultant driven to use media as a means for positive social impact. She founded Melrose Placed in 2017 to create space for authentic people and stories to push beyond perceived boundaries and to encourage unique and unexpected voices to seize opportunities.

She received a BA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Radio, Television, and Film and Gender Studies.

She is a certified yoga teacher and Underbelly devotee and never without one hand in a bag of potato chips (Boulder Canyon Kettle Chips with Avocado Oil for the win!).

Shi’Anna Whitman

Video Editor/Producer
Los Angeles, CA

Shi’Anna Whitman was born in Bryan, Ohio where from a young age she started a business raising her own goat herd to stay busy. She soon became heavily involved in the American Dairy Goat Association Professional Show circuit where she would breed, trade and sell her goats to top showmen to increase her bloodline and turn a profit. She used her earnings to help fund her college education where she recently graduated from Calvin University with a BA in film production and a business marketing minor. Since graduating, Shi’Anna continues to use her enterprising nature that she learned from her pioneer days to excel at starting up and carrying out new projects – particularly in media as a videographer and editor. In her free time she enjoys making music with her midi keyboard, oil painting, and singing – most recently to the In the Heights soundtrack. Celine Dion will always be her number one though.

Tiffani Jones

Accounting Manager
Raleigh, NC

Tiffani was born & raised in Detroit Michigan, one of 6 children on both sides of the family (mother’s & father’s side). She is a Scorpio who loves the water (but it doesn’t love my hair lol).  She has a bachelors in Accounting from North Carolina Central University with 6 years of experience that consist of non-profit and entrepreneur accounting, audits, and 990 tax preparation. Future endeavors are obtaining her CPA license and Master’s degree. She enjoys movies & music of all genres except heavy metal & bluegrass music, tried listening but couldn’t get far. She will get into a good book if recommended and not boring or slow moving stories. She loves to laugh, it is food for the soul all the time, and good food is always a plus for her. She will try anything once, within reason. If she isn’t working, you can find her spending time with 2 of her 3 children. Whether it be reading, watching anime, movies or hitting the road, she tries to keep her boys busy while her oldest is out doing what 20yr olds do: navigating her freedom while doing nails. 

Tiffani says: “If I don’t know the answer to something, I will go find it. I believe in self reflection in order to continue to be the best version of oneself.”
