She has been working with Joomla since 2005 and started to organize Joomla events in 2009. A proud mama and a proud New Yorker, as she defines herself. We talk about Laura Gordon, and in this interview, we know her a little more.
Thanks for participating in this interview, Laura! Could you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m originally from New York, which I’m proud of, yes, a proud New Yorker! I currently live with my husband and two adult children in East Brunswick, NJ. Our boys are attending college. One attends the University of Connecticut and is studying Material Science Engineering, and the other is a Freshman at the University of Massachusetts in the Business School. I also graduated from UMass Amherst; I’m a proud mama. Currently, I’m pursuing my Masters of Business Science in UXD through the Rutgers MBS Program.
My husband is an accountant, but he spends a lot of his spare time running the only Roller Coaster Teen tour, ThrillCoaster Tours, where he takes kids to amusement parks for the summertime. We have been running this business since 2005. Personally, I love to exercise, go on great Roller Coasters, spend time with my family and friends, and take walks with our dog, Luna, who we adopted in May 2020. She is a true pandemic doggie and does not know how to be alone!

What a great time in Rome! Click to read more and see the photos from the conference!
I was given the opportunity from both Joomla.org and Rutgers to attend the Joomla World Conference in Rome, Italy for 2017. Here are some of my thoughts about it, and photos, of course!
Joomla World Conference - 2017
Italy, The Italian Bridge
First of all, I must thank the entire team at OSM for considering and granting me the scholarship for JWC2017. I have been grateful to give so much to the community over the years, and it felt so good to be recognized. I can only hope that I can continue to help the Joomla community in the future.
The event had 3 main themes to it that I would like to focus on...Theme number 1 is the social / friendship effect that the joomla community has on me and so many others. Theme number 2 is the extensive knowledge of Joomla that was shared at the conference and how we can make Joomla better with action. Theme number 3 includes the other topics that were covered at the conference just a little outside of the joomla technology, but with this knowledge will help us all to become better Joomlers and joomla developers.
