I'll kick this off by introducing myself. I'm Caroline, the community manager for the Meraki Community. I'm really excited to help this community get off the ground!
When I'm not community-managing, I hang out with my two small kiddos, ride my bike around San Francisco, and get up to the mountains as much as possible.
My name is Pavlin Hristov and I am a Technical Evangelist on the Training and Evangelism team at Cisco Meraki. My job consists of developing, improving and delivering new and existing trainings to our partners and customers.
Hello! I'm Mike and I work as an IT Technicial at Medical Associates Plus in Augusta GA. We have 5 facilities using a mixture of network products to include Meraki. We would like to switch all our network equipment to Meraki in the future for equipment continuity.
Hi All! Glad to be here as well. We are Boutique Hotel Collection, and more specifically, I am Chris Biggers. We operate the full Meraki stack minus switching. Our expertise is in hospitality deployments of Meraki equipment, specifically the access points.
Hello everyone! I'm Rod, Systems Engineer for Presbyterian Medical Services here in New Mexico. I'm psyched to be a part of this beta community and ready to learn and share info about the wide wonderful world of Meraki!
My name is Joe and I am a Network Admin for Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group. We've been utilizing the full Meraki stack for the past year to support our over 90 locations. We are looking forward to testing out cameras here shortly. We have also been a part of the various Meraki betas and are working to help resolve AMP issues.
Network Engineer here with Eagle County Schools in the beautiful Colorado Mountains. We are just finishing up our transition from Catalyst equipment to Meraki this week for 160 switches and 500 APs over 19 sites and we couldn't be happier! We are looking forward to the evolution of the MC line and hearing the community's experience with scalability to >1000 handsets.
I'm Dave. I am the Information Systems Officer for a community bank in North Western Pennsylvania. We have 8 locations and use Meraki gear for all of our firewalls and almost all of our switching. I'm also using Meraki Systems Manager for windows app deployment and inventorying. I just started Threat Grid integration into the MX's.

Hey Everyone, I'm Casey,
I'm a network admin for a mortgage company, we have about 75 branch offices and we have meraki in all of them as well as in our HQ data closet. We're mostly all Meraki.. now if I can get our phone guy to switch over....
Hi all! My name is Brad, and I lead the Training & Evangelism team here at Meraki. I've been with the company for a bit over 5 years at this point, and it's been quite a ride to see Meraki grow from a 150-person startup to the organization that we are today.
My team creates and delivers Meraki's training programs for partners, customers, and others within the Cisco organization. I'm super excited about this forum as a way for Meraki users to interact and share experiences, and would love to see it grow over time to include additional ways for users to go further in their Meraki learning journeys.
Thanks for visiting and contributing!
My name is A.J. and I work for Privia Health based out of Arlington, VA. We manage over 350 small and medium sized doctor's offices in 6 different markets across the US. We have Meraki equipment in almost 200 of these Care Centers now (some have multiple offices) and manage a separate Meraki organization for each Care Center. The majority of these sites have at least a Meraki firewall, a lot of them have Meraki APs and a few of them have Meraki switches as well. Meraki has really changed the way we approach and manage networking in these offices in a very positive manner.
My hobbies include IT (this probably goes without saying), sports, music, food/beer and reading.
