Shannon Porter
Director of Client Services

My husband, Richard, and I met in Chicago while he was in medical school and I was in grad school to become a physician assistant. After we both graduated and got married, we moved to Wichita, Kansas where he did his residency. I started volunteering at a local crisis pregnancy center, which was built right next-door to an abortion clinic. We had a 4-D ultrasound machine and encouraged women to come next-door to our clinic and see their beautiful babies on ultrasound. This encouraged many of them to choose life for their babies! I loved counseling women and being a part of how God was revealing Himself to them through the trials, fears, and joys of pregnancy. After spending the last couple of decades raising 4 children, homeschooling, and serving on the mission field, I’m thrilled to be back counseling and serving women and babies in this community as the Director of Client Services at the Oakland Center.
