I'll get this community introduction started 🎉

I’m Shannon and I work on the Equinix Customer Communications team heading up the Community. Currently based near Seattle, Washington, USA. Right now, I'm getting ready to invite beta users into Community! I can't wait to everyone. 

When I'm not working, you can find me traveling, golfing, mountain biking, snowboarding or doing projects around the house. Left Photo: Golfing in Hawaii. Right Photo: Snowboarding at Mammoth Mountain

Hello from Colorado Springs, CO. I am excited to be part of the Customer Community!

I work for Equinix as a Director of Product Communications. I enjoy camping with my family & friends in the beautiful state of Colorado. My husband and I are Wagonmasters for the Colorado Rally for our camper manufacturer - which just means we coordinate and host a big weekend party for about 150+ other camper owners and their families in Granby, Colorado.

I love dogs and we have two rescues that are an important part of our family. Felix (left) and Misty (right) both love camping, long walks, and any kind of treat. I might be biased, but I think they are the cutest!dogs.jpg

I look forward to meeting everyone.

Greetings from the Bay Area! Excited to join the Customer Community. 

I am part of the Product Operations team at Equinix. Food, traveling, and working out are my biggest passions. I'm an avid CrossFitter and also love exploring hikes in the San Francisco Bay Area (the photo below was taken at a recent hike in Marin)! Looking forward to collaborating with everyone here 🙂
