Wendi Westervelt Mitzel - Investigator
Wendi's love for the paranormal began over 20 years ago when she moved to Pennsylvania from Maryland and discovered Gettysburg and its many haunts. Several paranormal experiences have encouraged her to research the history and people near where she lived. Her Genealogical research began when she discovered many old family photos in her Great-Grandmother's secretary in the late 1980's. This turned into a love of family history research rich with many of its own "ghosts" and untold stories. For her, making connections and finding a link through research and history is a natural part of the paranormal investigation process. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the MPS Team and help assist others in search of answers. Wendi is married with two teenagers and is employed as a nurse. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, volunteering with KPETS visiting those less fortunate with her dogs as a therapy team and kayaking at the lake.
