My name is Jacob Fife. I am a paranormal investigator with over 8 years of in the field experience and I am the co-founder of Fife Paranormal based out of Virginia. I have had paranormal experiences all my life and since the age of 9 I have been on the search for answers for the experiences I had when I was very young. I am a believer in the paranormal but I like to approach each investigation with healthy skepticism as I believe this doesn’t cloud my judgement from what is and what isn’t paranormal. My approach to investigations is I pay more attention to what my body is telling me than what any piece of equipment is telling me. I love history, photography, old music, and I try to use my love of history to study and get as much background on a location as humanly possible. I also conduct my own experiments with various devices to try and find other ways to communicate with spirits.

Ashley became interested in the paranormal at a young age, but at that young age she didn’t have much understanding in it at all. I wasn’t until 2010 that she really became interested. Thanks to a Resolve carpet cleaning can that flew across the room, Ashley among three others who witness what happen that night, they pulled a team together. Ashley is a heavy researcher and though she may find the answer to what she is searching for she’ll search even harder. She’s overly determined and takes her part in the paranormal field very seriously. Between working hard and spending every dime she had she became a found of a paranormal team that is based out of Historic Louisiana and was honored to take on a position as a Representative with The National Paranormal Society. There is still so much she doesn’t understand which drives her to work even harder and to further educate herself on everything out there.

I am Doreen Wente. I live in the northwest Kansas town of Quinter. I am presently employed as the Nursing Services Coordinator at our local hospital. I have a 22 year old daughter and a wonderful son-in-law. I have been interested in all things paranormal my whole life. I grew up in a house that I believe has the spirits of former residents. There have been too many strange happenings in my life to not consider the possibility of things in this world that we can neither see nor understand. These happenings escalated five years ago after my husband died in a work related accident. There have been many unexplained occurrences since that time, not only in my home, but for other family members as well. My daughter has shown signs of being “sensitive” since an early age and I have learned to just believe in her “feelings and dreams”. While they don’t make sense to the most logical person, I have come to realize that the world is not built on logic alone. I read on various subjects and am always eager to learn, especially about the paranormal. I am looking forward to being a part of NPS and learning and experiencing everything this group has to offer.

I have spent my life pursuing the existence of extraterrestrials. From a young age I would immerse myself in local libraries absorbing as much information on the possibility that we had been visited by another species, the thought of it inspired me to pursue it through my adult life. I realized after a period of time that my answer lay in the realms of science and I studied the aspects of science and extraterrestrials. Later in life I had my first experience with a ghost in my home I recently moved into . It scared me at first and I remember waking up the next morning compelled to recreate what had happened. I tried to debunk what I saw and to no avail I couldn’t. I began a journey to find what out what happened to me and to prove what I seen was real. I still pursue this among a lot of other things that exist beyond the realms of my understanding. I use science and technology, I think skeptical and critically because I always believe if you approach research and investigate as a skeptic you will find the truth.

I am Jim Brown. Located in Southwest Pennsylvania, I have been investigating claims of paranormal activity as an independent researcher for nearly 40 years, taking a scientific approach to all such cases. My specialty is in the electronics and instrumentation field, having a lifetime background in that area. I worked for West Virginia University for 30 years until retirement in that capacity. Currently I continue to do electronics work as a consultant to those needing custom design and specialized equipment using my own facilities.

I also provide consultation services to investigative groups and researchers who are investigating reports of unexplained activity with regards to evidence analysis and evaluation. My primary goal in that capacity is not to provide a final conclusion in the case, rather it is to provide an evaluation of evidence based on the content provided. In so doing it allows the primary investigator to use the evaluation as a tool to draw his conclusion based on data from an unbiased source.

We are also community driven, often volunteering our time to things like a local soup kitchen and animal rescues. I’ve been interested and involved with the paranormal since I was 10. My dad and I would often have our own little investigations while staying in haunted hotels and places. I’ve been all along the east coast taking part in paranormal investigations. I’m happy to help out with NPS in any way possible.

Hello. My name is Larry Hickernell. I’m a life-long resident of Pennsylvania and have been interested in the paranormal for over 30 years. I received my ASB in Mass Media from Central Pennsylvania College, my BA from the University of Scranton in English/Communication, and most of my common sense from the school of hard knocks. My wife and I have three sons and two granddaughters. For the past 3 years I’ve been working for the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple, a grand building opened in 1930 and supposedly inhabited by incorporeal beings.
To me the paranormal is anything that is not easily explained or readily evident. We all have had instances that defy common sense or rational thought. Our life’s journey is one of seeking to understand these occurrences and learn more about ourselves and our world.

Hello, my name is Julie Schnider. I am a happily married wife and mom to my 17 year old daughter and step-mom to my 18 year old son. I am the founder of WAID Paranormal based in WA State. WAID Paranormal is the second team that I founded going back 5 years. I am also the lead investigator and case manager. My focus has been primarily on audio and demonology. My team and I are diligent in trying to debunk claims before claiming they are paranormal in nature. I have personally witnessed the dark side of the paranormal and this event is why I chose to research and form a paranormal team. I believe that when people need help, especially families, there should be a resource available. If adults and children are able to sleep well at night, free from activity or with a better understanding of what’s happening, then my job is complete.
