Born and raised in Brazil, Manu moved to Atlanta for a job at Cartoon Network right out of college, where she stayed for 15 years (at Cartoon, not in college). She had a lead role on the creative team for Cartoon Network’s International division. She wrote and produced original content, while managing a team of creatives and studying lava lamps (why do they move so slow, though?).
After a disagreement with one of the Powerpuff Girls (you guessed it, the grumpy one), Manu moved on to be the Marketing Director at King of Pops. At the beloved popsicle start-up, Manu headed the popular event King of Pops Free yoga in Park. She had an important role in company’s first re-brand and grew their Instagram presence over 500% in less than 2 years. All that while walking and chewing gum. Once she tried every King of Pops flavor – including the Chocolate Watermelon (which shows you the lengths she will go for the brands she loves), it was time to move on.
That’s when Your Social Team was born. Out of a desire to confuse people with possessive pronouns. Or rather, a passion to help small brands provide value and entertainment through social media, especially Instagram.
