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
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.
NICK VON GNECHTEN
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.
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!
an avid reader, I enjoy continually learning about the
paranormal. I hope to apply the information I learn toward
investigations and helping individuals that contact the WPRS.
I’ve lived in the central WI area my entire life and enjoy
the varied history. I’m excited about joining the group and
look forward to investigating the unknown.

Investigator In Training
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
Proud mother and wife, and
