Laura began as a programmer using Sybase and Unix to build reports and queries for clients. She started teaching at Chubb Institute/Computer Services as a database/Unix instructor. After being introduced to web development with Visual Basic and Dreamweaver, she built some small sites using Dreamweaver and Fireworks, then discovered Joomla!, the open source content management system. Laura has built dozens of Joomla! websites in many different industries, from synagogues and nursery schools to manufacturing companies and public libraries. While building websites she also teaches Joomla! in New York City and to her current clients. See Laura's work at Rytechsites.com.
Sure currently works at Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences as a web developer. She works with a team of developers and supports around 120 websites within the School of Arts and Sciences. A special thank you to Rutgers, School of Arts and Sciences for assisting by giving us space to host our user group meetings in.
Personally, Laura enjoys being with her husband, her two boys, and their dog. They frequently visit amusement parks around the country. While at home she loves watching her sons' ball games when not building websites.
