Educator - Mary helped institute and develop one of the first Paranormal Studies Program in the country that is taught at an institute of higher education. As a paranormal educator and innovator, she now teaches several different metaphysical, science, and cultural based paranormal studies courses, as well as workshops at various colleges and institutions in the Chicagoland area. Mary also lectures at events, libraries, and conferences on how the sciences, including physics, neuroscience, and cultural anthropology relates to paranormal phenomenon. Paranormal Studies Internet classes are available.
It is her goal that sharing knowledge will result in the creation of better investigators and researchers, and in general, broaden people’s perspective and understanding of paranormal activity. Although her primary focus is on ghostly-type activity, starting at a young age, Mary has been drawn to and interested in psychic phenomenon and medium-ship, as well as the many aspects of theoretical physics. In more recent years, other fields of science and technology have gained her attention as well. “Science and technology, and metaphysics and spirituality, are very connected; they complement one another. Many do not see the marriage that exists between them, however, I do. In the paranormal field there is a union, a collective consciousness that exists between them.”
Investigator & Researcher - As a paranormal investigator and researcher with over 20 years’ experience, Mary is the founder and director of The Paranormal MD Investigations, a scientific and technology based organization located in northwest Illinois. The Paranormal MD is not limited to ghosts & hauntings. She is respected within several fields that include; paranormal, cryptozoology, psychic/medium-ship, and she is involved with the organization MUFON which deals with UFOs. Her insightfulness and ability to "connect the dots" has allowed her to capture the knowledge, and share it in a no nonsense way that is understandable, and relatable. Mary is the ultimate observer who looks for correlations between the fields and types of activity occurring. She brings tried and true science into the mix and applies it to various phenomenon as applicable. Theoretical physics, quantum, multiverse theories, culture, and neuroscience are areas of study for her, and she loves to relate her findings to the general public whenever possible. Metaphysics, parapsychology, culture, spirituality, and the human consciousness all play an important role in trying to understand the supernatural.
