Class Room Courses Offered at Various Colleges and Schools

As an educator, Mary helped develop one of the first Paranormal Studies Program in the country that is taught at an institution for higher education. She personally teaches three of the many courses now available within the Harper College Paranormal Studies Program in Palatine, IL. Mary also teaches classes at College of Dupage, College of Lake County, and the Theosophical Society in America.

 It is her goal that sharing knowledge will result in the creation of better investigators and researchers, and in general, broaden people’s perspective and understanding of paranormal activity. Although her primary focus is on ghostly-type activity, starting at a young age, Mary has been drawn to and interested in psychic phenomenon and mediumship, as well as the many aspects of theoretical physics.

In more recent years, other fields of science and technology have gained her attention as well. “Science and technology, and metaphysics and spirituality, are very connected; they complement one another. Many do not see the marriage that exists between them, however, I do. In the paranormal field there is a union, a collective consciousness, that exists between them.”
