About Helena

Born in the Midwest, my family moved to Montana when I was in seventh grade. Coming from a rural community, North Middle school seemed huge and overwhelming to my twin sister and me. But our school and community made us feel welcome.

I graduated from CMR High School and then earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry from MSU-Bozeman. I went on to get my Ph.D. from the University of Washington. Thanks to my education, I now  work as a scientist in Montana.

My husband, Troy and I, are raising our two kids in Great Falls, and we make efforts to give back to our community. I appreciate all the opportunities I've had, and I want to be of service to my hometown. I volunteer for voter outreach, child advocacy, and more.

As a scientific researcher, I consider all aspects of complex issues to find solutions to problems. As a mother and wife, I understand the decisions legislators make have a real impact on families. I hope to use my education, professional and personal experiences to support our community and provide more opportunity.
