Early life and education

Porter was born on January 3, 1974, and grew up in the small farming community of Fort Dodge, Iowa.[4][5] Her father was a farmer-turned-banker.[6] Her mother Liz was a founder of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting.

After graduating from Phillips Academy,[3][7] Porter attended Yale University, where she majored in American studies, graduating in 1996.[8] Her undergraduate thesis was titled The Effects of Corporate Farming on Rural Community.[9] She was a member of Grace Hopper College (formerly Calhoun College) at Yale.[citation needed] Porter also interned for Chuck Grassley during this time.[10]

Porter later attended Harvard Law School, where she was the Notes editor for the Harvard Women’s Law Journal.[11] She studied under current U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, and graduated magna cum laude with her Juris Doctor in 2001.[6]
Career

Porter clerked for Judge Richard S. Arnold of the United States Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit in Little Rock, Arkansas.[11] She practiced with the law firm of Stoel Rives LLP in Portland, Oregon,[11] and was the Project Director for the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges' Business Bankruptcy Project.[12][13][14][11][15][16] Porter was Associate Professor of Law at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas School of Law.[11] In 2005, she joined the faculty of the University of Iowa College of Law as an associate law professor,[11] becoming a full professor there in 2011[17] before joining the faculty as a tenured professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Law, in 2011.[8][18]

Porter's textbook Modern Consumer Law addresses consumer laws in light of Dodd–Frank and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.[19]

In March 2012, California Attorney General Kamala Harris appointed Porter to be the state's independent monitor of banks in a nationwide $25 billion mortgage settlement.[20] As monitor, she oversaw the banks' implementation of $9.5 billion in settlement reforms for Californians.[21]
