Meet the Paranormal Housewives!
We are a group of professional paranormal investigators who have come together to form a first-class team. We go to the most haunted places in Southern California and uncover the secrets behind the stories and the sites. We each bring a unique perspective to our work, but we agree on the basics: we work primarily with hard data, we check each other’s audio, photos, video and ITC communications and we don’t post findings here unless we have vetted the evidence first. We use the latest and best technology, but we are not primarily interested in gadgets. We are seeking the truth behind paranormal activity and the answers to age-old questions: what happens to the spirit or the soul after death?
My name is Marsha Covert-Garcia. I am married and I have 4 amazing children. I have been interested in the paranormal ever since childhood. I can remember being in grade school and reading books on haunted houses and spirit activity. However, it wasn’t until I started experiencing paranormal activity at my own home that gave me that ultimate drive to really find the answers I knew I always wanted. I am an investigator in training with 3AM Paranormal, which has been such an amazing experience. I love to investigate “haunted” locations, I would say that my heart is in it for any “child spirits.” I don’t know if it’s because I am a mom, or if it’s because it is my true purpose of being a Ghost Hunter, but I will say that I definitely feel drawn to places that have “child spirits.” I do take a scientific approach while investigating, however my mind is open to all possibilities. I am so excited to be on this adventure and passionate quest to find and share evidence with the whole human race that Paranormal Activity does exist.
Erin has a rich history with the paranormal. She grew up in a haunted house, and her mother still shares her home with a spirit. Erin has worked with several investigative teams in the Orange County and LA County areas as a case manager, investigator and sensitive.
Erin has been involved in paranormal research for several years, and when she is not investigating active sites, she is tap dancing, doing musicals around the Southern California area, raising her adorable 6 year old son Erik and her new daughter Rylee and working at home with her loan processing business. She is multi-talented and has a great sense of humor, bringing a lightness and joy to paranormal investigations that is sorely needed!
Kirsten A. Thorne, Ph.D.
Kirsten received her Ph.D. in Spanish literature and culture from Yale University. Since then, she has worked as a professor at Lawrence University, Loyola Marymount University, and currently, Pierce College. Her primary goal and mission is her students’ success. Kirsten has always been fascinated by the supernatural and its connection to Hispanic/Latino culture. She is bilingual Spanish/English, and lived for many years in Spain, where she experimented with Catholicism but did not find the answers to her questions about the human spirit and soul, and what happens to us after death.
Numerous personal experiences with supposedly “deceased” relatives led her to believe that there was something happening that deserved to be explored. She tried faith and multiple religious paths, but never felt at home in any particular spiritual practice. A few years ago, she took the leap and joined the Southern California Society for Paranormal Research, and later co-founded the Los Angeles Paranormal Association. Kirsten is one of the original founders of the Paranormal Housewives, a team that believes in the power of women to form a unique and powerful bond with the spirits in the afterlife, and paranormal phenomena in general. She founded soulbank.org, a website dedicated to exploring the research behind survival of consciousness and personal stories of the paranormal. One of her passions is uniting the paranormal community, so we can pool our resources and make the strongest case possible for the reality of survival.
Kirsten has appeared as a Linda Vista hostess and tour guide for Japan’s most popular variety show; was interviewed for the “Linda Vista” episode of Ghost Adventures; recounted her best paranormal experiences for Ghost Stories and has appeared, along with the other ladies, on local news (K-Cal 9) and in several newspaper articles including the Los Angeles Times.
Kirsten lives in the Santa Monica mountains with her husband (lawyer and videographer/photographer for investigations) Ty, her darling Mosca, two strange cats and a crazy green-cheeked conure. You can contact Kirsten at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Paranormal Housewives’ newest addition is investigator Jennifer Storey. Jen teaches Jazz and Broadway dance to kids and teens and is herself a veteran performer around L.A. & Orange County theaters. At home, she plays the important role of “mom” to a very energetic 8 yr old daughter.
Jen has always had an interest in the paranormal. As a child she loved hearing ghost stories from friends and as a young adult, had her first real experience. While vacation with family in France, she experienced a night in a hotel room where she heard voices, furniture being moved, constant footsteps and finally something invisible climbing up her body. This was enough to scare her….and intrigue her! She was hooked!
Kimberly Demmary has been fascinated with the paranormal since she was a child. She grew up with ghosts in her childhood home, and with a family that openly accepted and loved the spirit world! She has been actively investigating for several years.
Kimberly is also a produced playwright and is now trying her hand at Screenwriting. She plans to someday write the ultimate ghost story, hopefully autobiographical.
