Porter joins the NE KY AHEC team
Janie Porter, a Virginia native who has called Olive Hill home for more than 30 years, joined the NE KY AHEC team as an Educational Assistant on Sept. 6.
As the Educational Assistant, Porter assists the Health Careers and Student Services divisions, as well as manages scheduling students for job shadowing opportunities.
Porter worked for 22 years in higher education at Morehead State University as Academic Assistant for Academic Advising and Retention.
Porter said she was excited to become a member of the NE KY AHEC team because it provides her with the opportunity to continue working with students, especially in her role organizing job shadowing.
“Shadowing gives students the opportunity to have a glimpse into real-world experiences that they might have in their potential future health careers,” Porter said. “I have heard nothing but wonderful things about AHEC and I’m looking forward to working with this group of people.”
