Mrs. Ursula Porter
I’m honored to be the school nurse for Lake Travis Elementary. LTE is a wonderful school full of love, diversity, culture, and dedicated teaching professionals.
I began my nursing career 24 years ago at Scott White Hospital with NICU internship, followed by the City of Austin Health Department Pediatric nurse, Travis County Sheriff Department Correctional charge nurse, and then I discovered school nursing. I worked for Copperas Cove ISD, Killeen ISD. I bring a great variety of experience spanning from Pediatric Endocrinology and Oncology to School Health Services Administrator. Presently I am enrolled in the Master of Science Nursing at Excelsior College. Additionally, I owned and operated an early childhood development center for over 10 years.
I’m married to my friend and husband of 28 years, Dennis Porter; he works as a Unit Coordinator for Travis County Juvenile Probation. We have two boys, BJ, holds a degree in Kinesiology. Dennis is a Certified Personal Trainer. Both are into physical fitness. All three are Master Martial Art instructors.
Dennis and I love the Austin Spurs, professional basketball, comedy shows, dancing, and all types of music, traveling, and theater arts.
Children are the key to the future and I’m thankful for the opportunity the Lake Travis community has given me, to be part of their childrens formative years.
