Emily Porter

Emily Porter leads the federal and state government affairs practice at Sidecar Health. After 20 years in Washington, D.C., her close understanding of healthcare policy as well as how to creatively navigate complex political challenges enables Sidecar Health to have a voice with both state and federal public policy makers.

Prior to joining in April 2021, she was a partner at a boutique consulting firm in Washington, D.C., The Nickles Group. As part of the firm’s healthcare practice, she advised insurers, hospitals, start-up and pharmaceutical companies to help them achieve success within Congress and the Administration. She also spent a decade working on Capitol Hill in the House of Representatives managing and messaging key issues within the House leadership related to healthcare reform, Medicare and Medicaid.

Emily received her MA in Political Management from The George Washington University and her BA from DePauw University in Indiana. Currently, she resides in Alexandria, Virginia with her husband and two kids (and dog, Piper).
