I am studying for the Diocese of Helena, which includes all of western and north central Montana. That Diocese has 57 parishes spread over 51,922 square miles! Prior to joining PSJS I worked as a research scientist for 10 years in the fields of diagnostics and genetic testing. After that I then went to law school, and for the past nearly 10 years I've been working as an attorney, representing clients in the areas of biotech, pharmaceuticals, and diagnostics. It was after many years of prayer and discernment, it was suggested that I consider PSJS for my priestly formation. My Bishop, the Most Reverend George Leo Thomas, is a strong supporter of late vocations, and it was his recommendation that I attend PSJS. I'm especially grateful to be here - it is both a blessing and a privilege.
