Laura Gómez is an immigrant who moved to the United States at an early age with her family in search of the American Dream. She considers herself Colombian-American and has learned to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Coming from a blue-collar family, she knows the difficulties of working several jobs and barely having enough money to cover living expenses and other struggles minorities tend to suffer in the U.S. This influenced her quest for equal rights in an array of areas—women’s rights, food working conditions, the economy, and fair job opportunities for minorities.
Throughout her 13 years in communications—including written media, radio and T.V., as well as non-profit public relations and media relations—she dedicated herself to highlighting stories in sports, specifically women in sports, as well as the reoccurring injustices in the low-income, immigrant, and minority communities.
Her unique strategies, passion, and championing of fairness brought her to JMA as the Southern Communications Manager.
When she’s not working, she enjoys watching soccer (or any sport) and probably screaming at the TV. She has an insane amount of love for her family, fur babies, soccer, coffee and chocolate, and she is obsessed with Halloween and Christmas.
