Ms. Porter has a Doctor of Science degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from Boston University with a specialization in disability policy. Throughout her entire career, she has worked in the field of rehabilitation, focusing on comprehensive systems to support employment of individuals with disabilities.

THE CONNECTICUT STATE EMPLOYEES'™ CAMPAIGN FOR CHARITABLE GIVING (CSEC) is the once-a-year opportunity for Connecticut State Employees to contribute to non-profit charities through their workplace. Through the CSEC you can make a single gift to help people locally, throughout the nation, and around the world. The contributions made by you and your fellow employees make possible a wide range of vital services: shelter for the homeless, protection of the environment, research for cures of diseases, care for both children and seniors. These are only a fraction of the services provided by the nearly 700 charities listed on this website.
