My extraordinary life includes a turbulent childhood in and out of five foster homes and an orphanage before the age of thirteen, an early marriage at seventeen and confusing experiences with paranormal phenomena.
What happened in the days following includes my serious study of parapsychology which led to world renowned, psychic investigator, Allen Spraggett, inviting me to participate in the 50th anniversary seance at the Harrry Houdini Museum in Niagara Falls, Canada. Soon after that, Mike Randall of WKBW-TV dubbed me a "Ghost Buster" after I successfully resolved the problems in a house that was claimed to be haunted.
As the founder and director of Psychical Research Awareness Association, I have visited many well-known places in New York State that were claimed to be haunted, such as the Opera House in Lancaster, Fort Niagara in Lewiston, and Big Moose Lake in the Adirondack Mountains, which is the murder site of Grace Brown, described in An American Tragedy, by Theodore Dreiser.
I hold membership in:*American Society of Psychical Research - *Association of Research and Enlightenment - *Association of Women Writers - *Women Interested in Cystic Health - and the *National Association of Professional Women, of which I have been awarded "Woman of the Year 2010/2011.
I have been a teacher in the development of higher sensory perception (HSP) and a private consultant whose main desire has always been to render information that was both informative and beneficial. In my capacity as a sensitive, I have been asked to assist law enforcement agencies in the investigation of criminal cases. On numerous occasions, I have been consulted in cases of demonic presence and deceptive practices of psychic readers.
It has been claimed that psychic ability is a gift that some are born with. That may be so. However, I am a "sensitive" with the same abilities as a psychic and I believe that higher sensory perception may be developed by anyone. For that reason, I decided to write my life story which reveals the development of my higher sensory perception. My memoir, A Rose for My Mother includes relaxation, cleansing and meditation exercises to assist the readers in their development of higher sensory perception. A Rose for My Mother is also intended to show that we are never truly alone, and to add to the belief that hopes and wishes can come true.
