How Did You Become Interested In The Paranormal?

I have had numerous unexplainable experiences since I was a child and have always ‘known’ things. A psychic mentor of mine suggested I join a paranormal group and Bob Jensen happened to be a Facebook friend, so I contacted him. I have really enjoyed my experiences with GLS because although I’m an intuitive, I don’t like to jump immediately to a paranormal conclusion. GLS takes the time to rule out any and every logical answer to a situation.
Side Business : (PLEASE NOTE: is NOT affiliated with GhostLand Society and this service is Kerri’s own)
My name is Kerri and I am an intuitive reader as well as a Certified Master Level Energy Healer. I have been trained in Hawaiian spiritual/vibrational healing and have been initiated to five powerful, ancient Hawaiian vibrational energies, which I use in my healing practice. I am a single mother and work from home so I can be there for my son. Through distance healing and phone readings, I have clients all over the country and abroad. I have done readings for people as far away as England and South Africa.

How Did You Become Interested In The Paranormal?
"I started in 1989 with a small group and found myself going to another group in a short period of time after that. In 1990 I started GhostLandSociety with little more than a camera, tape recorder and a few leads. Over the years GhostLand Society has grown into one of the longest running, groups and well respected in Illinois. My skepticism keeps my investigators on their toes and forces them to look at all sides of the claims prior to making a final decision and presenting it to the clients."
Other Interests: Too many to list.

Marital Status:

How Did You Become Interested In The Paranormal?
I became interested in the paranormal after an experience in my childhood that left me with questions I couldn’t answer. 10 years ago, I started officially investigating and have found a love in researching whether something is in fact paranormal, or if there is another explanation I can find. I rely heavily on research and logic and find that to help give me an edge to getting to the bottom of paranormal claims and validity of investigations. I intend to expand further to try and find out.

How Did You Become Interested In The Paranormal?

I have been interested in the paranormal since my first unexplainable experience at a very young age. I grew up watching shows on the paranormal and my interest in the paranormal only grew with age as more experiences occurred. I am incredibly interested in expanding my knowledge on the paranormal, especially after completing my degrees in science-based fields.

How Did You Become Interested In The Paranormal? My fascination began after multiple encounters with the paranormal; starting at a very young age. It continued to grow with the idea of being able to help not only the living but the ones who have past on too. I’ve also become interested in the science behind an investigation, and can’t wait to see what I can learn from the team!

Occupation:Data Entry Clerk , actress, Beertender (Yes Beertender)
Location: Round Lake Beach, IL

How Did You Become Interested In The Paranormal? I never wanted to believe that there was paranormal activity growing up. My sister always said our house was haunted but I didnt want to believe it. As I got older and moved out I started watching a few paranormal shows and reading lots of paranormal books like Ed and Lorraine warren and I also had some strange eerie feelings and unexplainable experiences . and I realized the more I learn and experience the paranormal the less scary it was. Now I have done several investigations with my son Brian and on my own. Including investigating the house I grew up in with my son Brian, my sister and a paranormal investigator . I have experienced and have evidence of unexplained activity and voices that would send chills down peoples back. But the more I experience the more I want to learn and read up on what the history of the location.and the more I want to investigate and help people.

How Did You Become Interested In The Paranormal?How did I get involved with the paranormal?:as a young lad, my first all time favorite movie that I grew attached to quickly is Ghostbusters. After the movie was introduced to me and watched it countless times. I soon later descovered ghosts are real and my family has expirienced the unknown for many generations. It was to my surprise mygrandparents house was haunted and my mother and my aunt's growth up all had their own ghost stories. It had sparked my curiosity. I took the opportunity when my grandparents would go out of town to do investigations of my own to see if there truly was something haunted in our family home. After 14 years of investigations at the house, I find something new every time. Giving only more evidence and drive for me to discover more of the unknown.
