Founder & President of Haunted Journeys and Thriller Events
Founder of World's Largest Ghost Hunt / National Ghost Hunting Day
Founder and president of Haunted Journeys™, Maria is inspired in community collaboration within the paranormal field, enhancing public awareness for the contributions and benefits of the haunted tourism industry. High in Maria’s focus with the work she applies, is historical preservation. From there, their motto was created ... "A Haunting is History seeking to be Heard." She is sound in belief that Historic Preservation should not be overlooked as an Economic Driver, and through these voices this is heightened.
As a Registered Nurse, her paranormal experiences with the after-life were enhanced working with gerontology and the death & dying stages of life. Later as a marketing manager of one of the most haunted inns in Florida, Seven Sister Inn, her curiosity for scientifically approaches were further intensified. She saw there was purpose for their messages.
In addition, through Haunted Journeys™, her vision led to the formal proclamation and commission of National Ghost Hunting Day™ as a certified calendar entry. To celebrate this date annually, an event was internationally launched called the World’s Largest Ghost Hunt™ engaging millions around the world. Celebrated on the last Saturday of each September, this global event dedicates itself to Historic Preservation, unity among stakeholders in the Paranormal Investigation field and Public awareness of the respectful merits and contribution of the haunted industry to the tourism market.
Lead Investigator & Case Manger for TAPS Home Team
(The Atlantic Paranormal Society and Ghost Hunters, as seen on SyFY)
The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) is the paranormal research group that was featured on SyFy’s Ghost Hunters. The group, founded in 1990, continues to carry out its original mission to assist those who believe they are experiencing paranormal activity in their homes and businesses despite Ghost Hunters going off air. Traci leads this totally volunteer group as they provide confidential investigations and conduct community outreach all over New England.
Being a TAPS investigator since 2008, and Case Manager/Lead Investigator for the team since 2010, Traci is
proud to carry out the mission of founder Jason Hawes. She feels it is her calling in life to help the teams’
living clients as well as the spirits that she works with. Traci feels there is nothing more rewarding than
having a client tell her that the team has helped their family to feel safe and at ease in their home.
TAPS is also dedicated to educating the public on all aspects of the paranormal field, and Traci presents
regularly throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts on various topics related to the field.
She has also taught two, 8-week long adult education programs on researching the paranormal in her
home state of Connecticut and has led many teaching investigations. When she is not researching the paranormal, Traci is an avid equestrian, who also enjoys hiking and fitness.
