#WomensHistoryMonth Spotlight: Portia Ingram

There are plenty of female bosses on Long Island that deserve to be recognized this Women’s History Month and today we’re featuring Portia Ingram.

Portia secured her bachelors in communication sciences and disorders from Temple University and a masters in disability studies from the CUNY School of Professional Studies.

She used her education to contribute to her community for over 10 years in various positions ranging from a clinician to advocate. Portia continues to share and provide resources to those in the community and works alongside politicians and in non-profit organizations around Long Island.

She serves as the Deputy Director of Community Affairs for Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, assisting with constituent concerns and planning County endorsed events. She’s an active member of Minority Millennials, Inc.

She’s also a social entrepreneur, author and has worked as a wholistic organizational coach since 2014.
