Katie Portka grew up in Worcester, Massachusetts and graduated from Benedictine College after studying Journalism and Political Science.
Katie has been involved in the pro-life movement since she was little. Growing up, she often attended the Walk for Life in Boston, pro-life fundraisers, and the National Pro-Life March, as well praying outside abortion facilities.
In college, however, Katie became much more active. She started working as a sidewalk counselor and then was an officer for her college’s pro-life club, Ravens Respect Life, for two years. It was during this time that she felt called to continue working for the pro-life movement full-time. After graduation, Katie spent a summer in D.C. as a student of the National Right to Life Academy before joining the Students for Life team that fall.
Katie currently resides in Fredericksburg, Virginia and serves the Pro-Life Generation as Students for Life’s Development Admin Manager. This work includes managing the donor database, overseeing the processing of donations, and the preparation of mailing lists.
