BILL BEAUDRY

BBEAUDRYWPRS@YAHOO.COM

Position: Senior Investigator / Equipment Specialist

Profile:
My interest in the paranormal began a few years back when I spoke with a few members of WPRS. What really intrigued me about the group is their professionalism and knowledge about paranormal phenomena. I have an Associate Degree in Police Science. The greatest enjoyment I receive from being a member of the WPRS is being able to help families or individuals with their problems or concerns they may be experiencing with the paranormal.

Position: Investigator

Profile:
I became interested in the paranormal at a very young age.  Being a fan of ghost shows, I've decided to conduct investigations with others resulting in some personal experiences of my own. That made me want to join the WPRS even more.  I am beyond excited to begin my journey with the group and hope I can help everyone who comes to us.

 

SARA SHAW

SARASHAW510@YAHOO.COM

Position: Investigator

Profile:
From a very young age I have asked: Why? That has not stopped into my adult years. I continue to search for unknown answers by devouring books, TV and documentary shows, and by helping others through WPRS explain what they cannot.  I have a BA in Communication from St. Norbert College (No wonder Ghost Tours are my favorite time of the year!).  I look forward to more questions that will arise and answers that may come while in WPRS!

HEATHER ABRAMS

HABRAMSWPRS@YAHOO.COM

Position: Investigator In Training

Profile:
For as long as I can remember, perhaps as early as 3 years old, I have regularly encountered strange things or feelings that I could just not explain. Though these experiences used to terrify me, that fear has grown into a fascination, and has ultimately led me to taking the first steps in becoming a paranormal investigator. I love to read and learn, and this opportunity will enable me to not only further my knowledge, but also help those who may be at a loss as to what they are experiencing.

Proud mother and wife, and currently working as a CNA. I plan to pursue a degree in Nursing this coming fall at Fox Valley Technical College.
