I have had an interest in the paranormal ever since I could remember. Growing up, I had several experiences that could not explained, but never lent them much credence. As I got older my interest, became minimal. Until, in March 2001, my family purchased our second home in Shorewood, IL. Shortly after moving in we began to notice several unusually odd occurrences. It was at this point I had a decision to make. Was I going to dismiss the activity and blame it on my imagination? Should I simply choose to ignore it? Do we move to get away from the activity? Or, do I attempt to educate myself on what was occurring and try to grasp an understanding of it. I chose the ladder.
After searching the internet and bookstores, I decided to purchase some educational materials from Dave Oster and Sharon Gill of the International Ghost Hunters Society. After thoroughly reading the material and buying a few pieces of equipment, I decided to conduct my first investigation at home. I was immediately hooked. I began to visit local cemeteries to conduct investigation, as often as I could. I started to post my experiences, and evidence onto a website, that would later evolve into the Will County Ghost Hunters Society. An interest from the public to join me on these investigations caused me to form the Will County Ghost Hunters Society on August 1, 2004.
The Will County Ghost Hunters Society was formed to help research, investigate, document, and assist those whom are in need of assistance and understanding of the paranormal. As the director of the Will County Ghost Hunters Society, it is my primary responsibility to organize and coordinate our investigative teams. I must insure that all members are properly trained, and have an understanding of what we are trying to accomplish. As, the lead investigator, I must set fourth our protocols and standards, insuring that they are carried out.
The WCGHS has had a lot of success since it’s inception on August 1, 2004. There have been many changes over the years, but our goals and our passions for what we do has not wavered. I hope to see the continued success of the WCGHS for many years to come.
