Meet the Team
Founder - Case Manager
I can’t believe its 2019 already. I can remember my first investigations like they were yesterday yet they were almost 10 years ago. Each year offers me an amazing journey into unknown haunted locations and opportunities some would only dream of. I never thought we would be where we are today and I always wondered how long I would be in this field. How long does one do this or is there an end to it. It can be very exciting but also very stressful.
My name is Craig Nehring well known in the Minocqua / Woodruff area where I graduated from Lakeland High School in 1988 and was an avid water skier for many years on Plum-Skiters and Manitowish Waters Skiing Skeeters for 15 years combined. There was no skill test that I took in school that said I would become a professional paranormal researcher but here I am and I worked hard to get where I am. Let me tell you more about my achievements and the teams.
I am the founder of Fox Valley Ghost Hunters. I am the co-author of Wisconsin Most Haunted Vol 1 & 2. I am Author of Archives of a Ghost Hunter released end of 2018.

The rest of 2019 looks crazy with so many events where we get to meet the public and our guests and our followers of which without them we would not be where we are today. Join us in 2019 on our event and see us at some Paracons we will be at as well as hosting our own at a haunted school in Iowa called Farrar.

Historical Research / Investigator
Hi everyone, my name is Kara, and I currently live in Wausau with my husband and son, as well as a dog and some fish. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been interested in the paranormal. My chance to evolve that interest came around a couple of years ago when I joined Fox Valley Ghost Hunters. Since then, my eyes have been opened wider, and I have become more aware and awakened. I enjoy learning more about that which we don’t understand, as well as helping people. I love to get out and find answers and enjoy learning some history as well.
My name is Kevin Skattebo. I am 39 years old. I have been a Paranormal Investigator for 3 years now on various teams. I have been able to see things and feel things that others can’t since I was about 10 years old. I have seen everything from actual orbs with my bare eyes to full bodied apparitions. I also see various light anomalies. When I was little I was scared of my abilities, but now that I’m older I know I was given this gift for a reason. That reason is to help people with things that they do not understand. I have been to Edinburgh Manor in Iowa, Heritage Hill, First Ward School in Wisconsin Rapids, and a few that I am required to not say the name of. My hobbies include Hunting, Fishing, Trapping, and Camping.
Hello, my name is Celena. I’m originally from Northern Nevada/Utah. Moved to Wisconsin in 2007. As a child growing up with a Clairvoyant Paternal Grandmother and also with my own Empathic traits, I’ve always been intrigued by the paranormal. My step-grandmother and I would watch paranormal investigation TV shows and we would say we were going to go visit those places. She has now been gone since 2014 I am beyond Blessed and Honored to learn more about the Paranormal and keep her memory alive while visiting beautiful and historic places along with helping others. I am Blessed and Honored to be a member of an Amazing team of The Fox Valley Ghost Hunters.
Hello, my name is Mary. As a young child, I began experiencing events that others were not. I was told I had a very active imagination, but at the time I didn’t have an understanding of the paranormal. I found my first book regarding the paranormal in the third or fourth grade and have been researching anything and everything paranormal since. I love that I have an opportunity to bring honor to those who have passed but stay in our realm to share their history. I am grateful to be a part of The Fox Valley Ghost Hunters team, and I look forward to all of our future investigations.
Hello paranormal lovers everywhere! I’ve been doing investigations since 2016 and have had experiences as far back as I can remember! One of my favorite encounters was on this very team and I’m excited to have the time to return and visit some of my favorites as well as many new! When I’m not investigating I love spending time with my family, grilling and bonfires like any other good old WI raised girl. I look forward to meeting all the new people, living or otherwise. See y’all soon!
