Meet the Team

When you see an add in the newspaper looking for people to start a paranormal group in your home town one can not ignore it, I had to reply. That's how I got involved with Midwest Paranormal Files. I have always had questions about ghosts and what goes bump in the night but didn't know who to ask or how to find out on my own. Coming into this group I was hoping for instant answers, we have found some but typically end up asking even more. But I did find a wonderful group of people that I can now call my friends. I look forward to one day being able to answer every question dealing with the paranormal but until that day comes I will be enjoying the journey.

In 2010, I answered a newspaper ad looking for people who lived in a 'haunted house' and were willing to have their home investigated for paranormal activity.  I first wanted to meet these 'investigators" to make sure that if I was going to let a bunch of strangers into my house at night, they wouldn't be a bunch of wierdos.  I went home from that meeting and let my husband know that we were joining a paranormal investigating team.  We've been with them ever since.

We've never investigated our own home, by the way.

Webmaster, Tech Guy, Lead Investigator...ya whatever. I live in Rochert, MN. I got into this field looking for new challenges, and answers to my many questions that rattle in my feeble brain. My wife Emily and I have been part of this group from the start. I have found new challenges, but not many answers. In time I may get some, but what is life without mystery. I have had a lot of people warn me that what I'm doing is dangerous. If we feared the unknown the world would still be flat. I find it to be a lot of FUN work, boy if enjoyed my real job this much I might not dread the morning so much.

I moved to Detroit Lakes in 2004 and in 2012 I joined Midwest Paranormal Files after seeing them present at ParaCon at the Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen, MN. I have always been interested in the paranormal and I was excited to find out that there was a team looking for members right in Detroit Lakes. Besides being a paranormal investigator I am also involved with the Becker County Historical Society. I started there in 2005 as a staff member and today I currently hold the title of Vice President on the Board of Trustees. Being able to to tie my two favorite fields, history and paranormal, is one of the main reasons I still look forward to every investigation. I absolutely love hearing the stories behind the places we go and it is even more fun to be able to research these places and present to our clients new information about their place.

I have lived in the Detroit Lakes area for over 15 years and am originally from Hibbing, MN.  My husband Brian H. and I are both founding members the Midwest Paranormal FIles group.  We've been involved with paranormal investigating since 2010. 

Besides paranormal investigating, my husband and I have volunteered at the Fergus Falls Kirkbride (old State Hospital).  Brian and I have helped give tours with the Friends of the Kirkbride group and helped do security, as well as help the preservation effort to keep the building and others like it standing.  We also enjoy geocaching and camping when we get the chance.  I work with electrical control panels for the water and wastewater industry for a living.

I have been surrounded and intrigued by the paranormal most of my life.  I have always been curious about the paranormal, and this gives me a chance to capture evidence and share our experiences with others. Being a paranormal investigator, I get to learn the history and stories, these locations and "people" have to tell.  I enjoy being part of a group that is here to help others along the way.  Hopefully we can help people further understand any unexplained activity they may be dealing with (paranormal or otherwise) and help ease their minds, always without judgment, and with an open mind.

Someday we will all find out what happens when we are gone from here, but until then, there is so much to explore.  The longer I do this the more I am drawn into the field of the paranormal.  I hope I can help bring peace to those experiencing the unexplained. We get to meet so many great people, and visit such amazing places.  Every investigation is rewarding!
