Lisa Swickard is an award-winning author/historian/journalist and paranormal investigator. With 10 books to her credit, Swickard specializes in "fascinating history you didn't learn in school. ©" She founded the ghost walks in 2015 and narrates each of the tours. The paranormal is nothing new to her; it has been a part of her family for five generations. "The ghost walks are the ultimate mix of the two things I love, and we have an absolutely phenomenal team of professionals in psychic Lindsey Lawson, fellow historian John Huss, sensitives Susie Feasel and Carol Moore. Each of us have at least 30-plus years experience in our fields," explains Swickard. "In these walks we are keeping alive the people who lived here a long time ago and may have otherwise slipped into obscurity. I think they know that and that's why they come to visit us week after week."
Lindsey Lawson is a psychic medium with empathic abilities who first recognized her unique gift when she was 5 years old. She has been honing her abilities since 2012 by meditating on a regular basis and practicing astral projection, among other things. Lawson has the ability to talk with those who have departed this earth by picking up on their emotions or pain. She can see past events and also has developed the rare ability to touch an object and feel its energy in order to determine what has transpired in a particular situation. "I let the walls talk to me," she says. "I wouldn't be who I am today without my sensitivity. I'm not afraid of my abilities; I embrace them."
