Porter, 31, recently returned to her native town from Cambridge, Mass., where she held marketing and fund-raising positions with the Harvard Business School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Environmental Engineering Inc. She earned a master's degree in management from Lesley College Graduate School. Porter is a fourth generation Pasadenan; her great-grandfather, William Waterhouse, once served as mayor and was founder of Pasadena Waterworks.
