Hi guys! Welcome to my website. Although, I’m probably best known for my work in the paranormal field and involvement in various paranormal Television programs, I’m also an actress, lead singer of a band, producer and lecturer. I’ve had a passion for the supernatural since I was a young girl. Having grown up in haunted houses left me with a desire to seek out the unknown.
I’m often asked, “How in the world did you become a paranormal investigator?” Honestly, I feel like it chose me. I wasn’t always a great student. In fact, in third grade I had a teacher tell me that I was never going to amount to anything and that no one would ever hire me. Encouraging words for a young buck to hear, no?
I barely graduated high school and had no real ambition to go to college, the words of that third grade teacher stayed with me for years and I guess over time I believed them.
However, a trip to The Pennsylvania State University changed my life. I dropped a friend off at main campus one summer weekend and the minute my feet hit the pavement I had this overwhelming feeling that I needed to be there.
The day I got back to my hometown I signed up for classes at the local community college. It was there that I was able to overcome the harsh words from that teacher so long ago.
I graduated from Penn State with degrees in Integrative Arts and Theatre with a minor in music technology (take that third grade teacher!). During my studies a passion for the paranormal grew. As luck would have it, there was a paranormal club, the world-renown Paranormal Research Society (PRS). I worked with them as their case manager interviewing thousands of eyewitnesses to the unknown. This led to the opportunity to be a co-host on A&E’s hit docu-drama Paranormal State (2007-2011), which chronicled the work of PRS.
I then served as the host for Chiller’s “Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies”, which explores the real life terror behind some of the world’s most iconic horror films. “Real Fear” is Chiller’s number one original program to date. I also hosted the follow up special “Real Fear: The Truth behind More Movies” in 2013.
I’ve worked on various projects over the years in both film and television. Currently, you can catch me co-hosting Destination America’s “Paranormal Lockdown” with famed paranormal investigator Nick Groff. Paranormal Lockdown follows us as we investigate some of the world’s most haunted locations for 72 hours straight! Be sure to check us out Friday nights at 10PM EST.
In my free time I have a love for learning new things, traveling, karaoke, reading about serial killers and reruns of The Golden Girls (seriously, I’m obsessed with that show to unhealthy levels and I will probably try to convert you to being a fan too).
I love helping others and I also use my free time to volunteer as a crisis counselor.
I hope you’ll enjoy my site. Take off your coat, kick up your feet and make yourself at home in my cozy nook on the web.
