    Riikka Sihvonen

    Cisco Designated VIP  (2014)

    Riikka Sihvonen is a new, promising player in the field of IT, possessing the ambition and potential to become a seasoned network expert in the future.


    She graduated as a B.Eng in IT with an honorary scholarship in December 2012, after which she was hired full-time as Data Center Technician by a local service provider. Her main responsibilities include maintaining and developing data center operations.  Although Riikka is still relatively new to the IT industry, she fearlessly accepts new challenges even beyond her expertise and is determined to produce top-notch networking solutions, often receiving positive feedback for her work.  She currently holds CCNA/CCNP certifications and is working tirelessly to obtain more.


    When she is not immersed in professional literature or contributing to the CLN community, she enjoys photography, movies, and occasional gaming.  She is also fond of many sports and likes to stay physically active by exercising regularly at the gym. In the winter, she tries hard not to be the worst player in the rink with her nephews and friends.


    Congratulations Riikka and thank you for your contributions to our community!
