We are a down-to-earth, friendly team who is here to help you! 

Also, find us on Facebook under Paranormal Investigators of New England!

As a result of having experiences such as living in a haunted apartment, an apparition standing just feet away, to having a surreal UFO experience all in my early 20’s, my life’s path forever changed.  I work full-time in a government job, but nights and weekends are spent serving others who are going through difficult times or just solving a really good mystery whether it’s spirits, cryptids or UFO’s experiences. My beliefs are that events are put before us to lead us in the direction we are supposed to go whether it’s personal for myself or for the client. I feel it’s vital to disseminate what’s real, explainable, to what cannot be scientifically accounted for and to occasionally step back and look for the overall message.


I was blessed having raised 3 sons with my husband who has been and continues to be my rock in life. Being able to lead this team who has become a second family, has led to years of rewarding satisfaction and joy, you won’t find better people with more positive upbeat attitudes and I am indeed lucky to be a part of it.

I live in Stowe, VT. I am married, and have two sons.. I love to travel, garden, hike, paddle-board, and find new adventures!


Since I was young I have always been fascinated by family ghost stories and anything to do with the paranormal. That curiosity has never gone away. I was a property tax assessor for over 17 years and love old homes and the stories that go along with them. In 2006, my youngest son had an unexplained experience in a small rural cemetery involving another child only he could see that re-ignited my curiosity. After that event, I knew I wanted to be a paranormal investigator. ​


I have been with PI-NE since 2010. In recent years began an in-depth focus in the field of cryptozoology.  I am proud to be part of such a professional team that is client focused and has a wealth of knowledge to help you with all types of paranormal issues.

I live in Underhill VT and enjoy the mountain views, rivers and lakes. In my free time I also enjoy fishing, movies, and scrapbooking. I’m passionate about my job where I work on a solutions team and enjoy problem solving and building connections.


As a child, I grew up in an old house where the previous owner had tragically passed away. It was thought that this person’s spirit was responsible for walking back and forth upstairs each night when no one else was there. There were other unexplained events that intensified as I moved into my own home. This greatly sparked my interest in the paranormal and my wanting to help other people as well. I’m very excited to to investigate the paranormal with a team of professionals who share the same curiosity and interests as I do.

I am a very proud mother of 3 wonderful children, born and raised in the beautiful hills of Vermont. I feel fortunate to be able to wake up to the beauty of the green mountains daily. I enjoy fishing, camping and anything outdoors in my spare time. I have always loved a good mystery, or ghost story. Growing up in Vermont as a child, we would venture out searching for bigfoot or Champ. My interest in cryptozoology peeked when I witnessed a sighting of Champ as a child.



The paranormal has always been a passion of mine, and discovering of the unknown is amazing in my eyes. I love investigating the paranormal and making contact with the other side. There is so much that is unknown to us and my goal is to give clients the help and understanding they are seeking. Knowledge is everything and I enjoy learning new things pertaining to the paranormal field. 

Kathy Eastman


I live in Sutton, VT, married with 8 step kids and have many grandchildren. I have lived most of my life in Vermont and love the views this state offers.  My paranormal experiences started when I was a small child growing up in an old colonial home. The home was being constantly renovated and never fell short of giving us new haunting experiences. The neighbor’s house where my friends grew up also experienced paranormal activity as well. Since that time in my life I have had a lifetime of experiences.



I enjoy riding my motorcycle. I love my dogs, photography, making jams, watercolor painting and get-togethers with friends. I learn everything I can about the paranormal. I like to read paranormal books and watch the TV shows.


I am excited to be a member of PI-NE and hope to help people in need by seeking answers to paranormal questions and problems. 

Kevin Cheney


I live in Hinesburg Vermont and am a husband and a father of two. I love to travel and visit places I’ve never been along with going to see my favorite baseball team, the Boston Red Sox. One of my favorite places to hang out is with my family at my camp on the shores of Lake Champlain and swim, kayak, and canoe.


My curiosity of the supernatural and unexplained started at a young age. I grew up in a large home in rural Virginia that was very active. Each of us in the family had experiences that we still talk about to this day. Growing up in Virginia also made me become a Civil War history buff since I had access to so many battlefields.


I am honored to be a part of PI-NE and work with such a fine team of investigators to help solve peoples paranormal experiences and questions.

Steve Sicard


I am married to the love of my life. I have one daughter and two step daughters. We have three grandchildren. We also have two rescue dogs, Toby and Sophie. They keep us busier then most toddlers.


I have always been fascinated with the paranormal. I prefer watching SYFY and any paranormal programming. Growing up, I heard stories of alien sightings from adults sitting around the dinner table. I listened to the stories intently, and found them fascinating to me. As a teenager, I had an unexplained experience. While traveling on the interstate, after going to the drive in, my cousins and I saw a bright beam shine down on the car. No matter how fast we went, the light stayed with us. It disappeared as fast as it appeared.


As an adult, I have had several experiences that have peaked my interest. Investigating the paranormal has always been intriguing to me. I believe technology helps us prove there are spirits and entities from the other side. This can be loved ones that have passed away or others that need to be crossed over. I think helping people find answers to why they are experiencing abnormal activity is the most rewarding. The more we understand the unexplained, the more it opens up to more questions. I believe, working with PI-NE that has a diverse group of experienced investigator’s is the best way to help others explain the paranormal. 

Ed Riddell


I am a Husband of a lovely strong woman, Father of two smart gifted sons, professional with LEO/Mental Health experience, a seeker of the paranormal in all forms, stalwart voice for truth and justice, and above all a follower of Jesus Christ my Savior. I was born in Oregon, have lived in Southern California, traveled in various places throughout North America and have chosen Vermont as my home since 2006.


My paranormal journey began as a child by losing several close relatives to death, including my biological father. I also believe that I saw a flying UFO in a brief moment while traveling in Death Valley. Those experiences have left me wanting more answers and has pulled me deeper into seeking evidence and understanding all areas of the paranormal.


I am grateful for my fellow PI-NE members who educate and support my journey of discovery. I could not be more blessed than to have been led to this amazing group of talented investigators who are committed to each other and to spending enormous amounts of time and energy just for the opportunity to get a glimpse of what hides beyond our normal everyday experiences.

Director NH Division

I am a father of two wonderful young men engaged to a wonderful woman I can’t imagine life without! We live in Manchester, NH and love the granite state! I am also a previous member of PI-NE from 2008 to 2011 and I am very grateful to be with PI-NE again leading our NH division!


Throughout my whole life I’ve had experiences with almost every aspect of the paranormal ranging from UFOs to spiritual phenomena, to evidence of Bigfoot. These experiences gave me a passion for all things paranormal, which I love to research and investigate. I also have a deep passion for spirituality. 


At PI-NE, we stay open and humble. I believe that we will only come to understand the paranormal, and our reality, if we remain open to all possibilities and investigate using many disciplines such as history, science, and spirituality (to name a few). This is the only way we will best serve our clients to validate their experiences, as well as provide answers about the experiences they’re having. Best of all it brings a peace of mind to our clients, who are our top priority, to know they have a team doing everything they can to help them with their situation.


Thank you for choosing PI-NE!

Nancy Austin

Investigator NH Division

I work for the Pharmaceutical Industry, am a wife and mother to an awesome husband and wonderful son, and currently have one pet, my little black kitty named Hunter. I have always had a fascination about the supernatural and after several unexplainable paranormal experiences and UAP sightings, my interest became a search to understand the truth of these events. I appreciate a logical and scientific approach to discovering facts and prescribe to a "do no harm" approach for investigations. I am humbly honored to be working with such a great team and hope that our endeavors together will bring peace to the folks reaching out for understanding of paranormal mysteries. 

Marc Menard

Investigator NH Division

I am from Beverly, Massachusetts. I have been investigating the paranormal since I was 16 years old. My first experience with the paranormal was investigating a local cemetery with friends, when I felt a hand on my elbow. When I turned around my friends were no where to be found, I was completely alone. That drove me to find answers to what happen to me. I love the technology side of investigating. I use skills in law enforcement to debunk and find rational explanations. One my favorite location is USS Salem in Quincy Ma. My next adventure is to explore and investigate UFOs and cryptozoology. When I am not investigating the paranormal, you'll find me spending time with my family, playing video games, going down the Salem yacht club.

II am a single mom and live with my dog and cat in Somersworth, NH.  I grew up in a haunted house but didn't realize it was haunted til years later. When I moved to Somersworth, I noticed things weren't right.  I decided to get security cameras and found out that i was definitely not alone. This peaked my interest in the paranormal. I am hoping to help lost souls and those affected by them.  In my spare time I am a musician, I play the drums and guitar. I am looking forward to working with this team.

When not traveling the country for my day job in sales, I share my nest in the Mount Washington valley near the Maine border with my Husband and three goofy spaniels. As Washington State natives, we have embraced New England as a second home. Prior to joining this team, I’ve never considered myself an “investigator” of the paranormal. My sensitivity to and awareness of spirit energies first emerged at the young age of 5 with my grandmother after she had recently passed. That experience and a lifetime of the same have shaped my view on the spirit world and lead me to this team.


My desire is to be helpful to others and to support one another however I am able. I believe there are things we observe or encounter and simply have no intellectual container for. As humans, I also feel we seek to better understand these instances and we often do so as skeptics of the atypical. There is respectable merit in approaching the paranormal with an open yet discerning mind coupled with the desire to better comprehend the sometimes unsettling moments we experience. I hope we are able to help normalize unusual events and empower others to accept messages received as information gained and support people through whatever that individual process looks like.

I live in southern New Hampshire with my fiancé where I attend Southern New Hampshire University for Forensic Psychology. My paranormal experiences started as a child, but my logical side tried to explain everything away. I was often in the woods either helping my father hunt or caring for cemeteries with my mother. I found myself fascinated with the stories behind the headstones and would often research farther into people’s lives and more importantly, their deaths. This cultivated a connection to my experiences. My hope is to provide solid scientific and psychological support to the things that we can’t explain away.

Father of 3 boys and 1 girl. I enjoy reading a good paranormal book and literature. I also enjoy watching MMA and pro wrestling.


I started as a Paranormal Investigator in 2001 with a group from Worcester, MA. I have investigated all types of paranormal phenomenon from cryptozoology, ghost, hauntings and UFOs. I founded Paranormal Investigators of New England (PI-NE) in 2004. I have trained many investigators in the field who have started their own groups in New England and continue to help anyone in need.
