Julia Porter is COO of The Porter Group.
After practicing occupational therapy for 20 years, health circumstances moved Julia in a new direction, and she decided to partner with her husband, Gene, in the insurance field. This, in turn, led to the start of their agency, The Porter Group.
Julia graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in 1997 with a B.A. degree in occupational therapy. Today, she is a licensed life and health insurance agent, while also maintaining her license as an occupational therapist. In 2003, Julia spent time providing medical therapy service as a missionary in Venezuela. As a highly successful insurance agent, she has been recognized by CMS as a Marketplace Circle of Champions member every year since 2020.
Julia met her husband and business partner, Gene, as a single mother in 2004. Together, they have five kids, many grandkids and two beloved German Shepherd dogs. In her spare time, Julia enjoys being outdoors with her pets, gardening, traveling, kayaking and painting. The guiding cornerstones of Julia’s life are faith, family and work, in that order.
