Based in Michigan, Kathleen "Raven" Meindel is a very good friend of mine, an all-round cool person, and an excellent researcher, too. What more could you ask for?!
Raven will be covering her native Michigan as she seeks out all-things of a monstrous nature for the CFZ; and when new data surfaces from her, you'll get to learn about it right here. And, in her own words, here's Raven to tell you all about herself:
"I have had an intense curiousity for all things strange and unsual since childhood. My own experiences, as well as those of others, led me to dig deeper into the unknown, and delve further into this research that I now have such a burning passion for.
"After intensive study and fieldwork, I recieved my certification in Paranormal Investigations on May 24, 2008, and I am now a C.P.I. I also have a professional background in Intuitive work as well as Dream Analysis and lifecoaching.
"I love trailing 'monsters' and I live for the thrill of the chase. From the Michigan Dogman and the big black cats of southern Michigan, to the Loch Ness Monster and the Chupacabra, I enjoy investigating and learning about them all.
"While Im still the 'baby' in the family of researchers, I do hope to one day have the wisdom and experience of researchers like Ken Gerhard and Nick Redfern, who have become not only my respected mentors in this field, but dear friends as well."
