Amy Bruni is a good example of what happens when a hobby turns into a passion, which in turn becomes a way of life. Like many in the paranormal field, Amy grew up in a haunted house. Yet, unlike most in that situation, Amy's family embraced it. Her father was an amateur paranormal investigator and routinely, he and Amy would investigate haunted sites. At a young age, she was reading and absorbing everything paranormal related she could get her hands on — and as she grew to adulthood, that didn't change.
Her first investigative job was with a paranormal team in Sacramento, CA. And eventually her lifetime of supernatural knowledge drew the attention of Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson of The Atlantic Paranormal Society and the Syfy series, Ghost Hunters. She then began helping them with various TAPS activities and shortly thereafter, she helped form the first ever TAPS satellite team, TAPS West. Since then, Amy has been recruited to be part of the TAPS home team on the East Coast and now she travels with the show as a core team member.
Most recently, Amy has been using her connections in the field to conduct important research on the nature of group dynamics in the paranormal, and she's also begun lecturing on ghosts and the supernatural.
Her goal is to work across the paranormal community with the hope that serious field research can occur and then be shared within the society.
