Paul received his Bachelor’s Degree in History from the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus while on his way to becoming a Catholic Priest. He spent two years at the Athenaeum of Ohio, the Catholic Seminary in Cincinnati. In his internship year he went to Pomona Valley California for a 3 month internship at their inpatient Chemical Dependency Program. Coming back from that experience he decided that he was called to pursue a career in addiction counseling. He was able to drop out of the ordination process and continue classes at the Athenaeum to get a Masters in Pastoral Counseling. He feels grateful to have also found his wife while at the Athenaeum and is proud of having 3 wonderful children.

Paul joined BrightView as a substance abuse counselor and feels very blessed to have found a group of people who are passionate about serving those who suffer from addiction as well as their families…and they have coffee!
