Meet the Team
I can remember my first investigations like they were yesterday yet they were almost 12 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 and am well known in the Minocqua / Woodruff area where I graduated from Lakeland High School in 1988 and was an avid water skier 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 the author of Archives of a Ghost Hunter released end of 2018. I am co-author of Archives of A Ghost Hunter Vol 2, Haunted Expeditions in the Midwest, Wisconsin Haunted Travel Guide with Melissa Clevenger. I have been featured on U.S.Cellular Commercials in 2016 and some of them have over 4 million views. I have been on Radio shows from Coast to Coast, Late Night in the Midlands, Fade to Black, Hillbilly Podcast and on Beyond Reality with Jason Hawes star of the Ghost Hunting show TAPS. I have been on local TV stations like Channel 12 in Rhinelander and Channel 5 Green Bay. Our team has been featured in newspapers from the Huffington Post to Milwaukee Journal. We have been in one of the biggest paranormal magazines out there called Paranormal Underground. Some of my team members and I were on Destination Fear on the Travel Chanel season 2 featuring the Sheboygan Asylum. I was also on Kindred Spirits Season 6 episode 10.
Our newest book is called Wisconsin Haunted Travel Guide and can be found on Amazon. Looking into 2023 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.

I want to thank my team members past to present for the amazing journey this has been and continues to be. Peace, Love, and Light, see everyone soon.
Lead Investigator / Medium
Hello, my name is Melissa, and I am the lead investigator for the team. I am the co-author along with Craig of “Archives of A Ghost Hunter II,” and co-author of our new book coming out in May of 2021. I have been on numerous podcasts throughout the United States and UK, such as The Midnight Society, The Ghost Host with Sophia Temperilli, and Hillbilly Horror Stories, just to name a few. In June of 2020,I appeared on Destination Fear on the Travel Channel featuring the Sheboygan Insane Asylum.
I have had paranormal experiences since I was little, and throughout my entire life. Growing up I always saw and heard spirits, and continue to have activity everywhere I live. It is a part of my life and a part of who I
am. I am interested in all things paranormal. I have traveled to countless notorious haunted locations
checking off my bucket list. Delving into the history of the locations that I investigate intrigues me.
Through the years my ability to see ghosts has faded, but my passion to communicate continues. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing team, and I look forward to all of our future investigations.
Hello, my name is Travis. I am an avid hunter, fisherman, and outdoorsman. I have always been intrigued by the unknown. Being a skeptic for the better part of my life I was blind to the things happening around me. Until a few years back when personal experiences I couldn’t explain forced me to seek out answers.
I am very excited to be a part of Fox Valley Ghosthunters because it gives me the opportunity to explore new places, meet some amazing people and find out what unknowns are really out there.
I continued to be interested in all things paranormal and I was even able to tour some haunted locations like Ashmore Estates and Bobby Mackey’s. But it wasn’t until I saw an ad on Facebook for the Sheboygan County Asylum that I was able to truly dive into investigating. After that, I knew I wanted to do more. Having this opportunity to be a part of the FVGH is like a childhood dream come true and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Hello! My name is Sam and I am excited and honored to be a member of Fox Valley Ghost Hunters! I have held a deep interest in the paranormal since I had my first experience when I was 12 years old. Since then, I’ve been seeking out answers and learning as much as I can about spirits and other aspects of the paranormal.
I went on my first investigation in Gettysburg, PA in 2021 and have continually looked for more and more opportunities to investigate and experience the paranormal. In May 2022, I discovered Fox Valley Ghost Hunters and the Sheboygan Asylum and have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to get to know and join the team. Outside of investigating, I’m a special education teacher. I enjoy painting, baking, playing guitar, and spending time with friends and family. I’m very passionate about history and spend lots of time reading and researching about any and all American history topics, especially the Revolutionary War.
Hello! My name is Briana. The paranormal world has always intrigued me, and I’m very excited to be a part of the team. I am a big believer that there is a life after this one, and have had my own experiences in my life with the paranormal. I knew I wanted to find answers to things that couldn’t be explained. After finding out about the Sheboygan Asylum, I really started getting into investigating and discovering new places.
I love interacting with whoever is residing wherever I visit. I never thought I would be going to these historical places and having such amazing, intelligent experiences. Outside of investigating, I love going to concerts and festivals, playing video games, and spending time with my family and pets. I’m also looking forward to getting married in October 2023 to my fiancé AJ! I am very excited to be a part of Fox Valley Ghost Hunters.
Hello. My name is AJ. After having several paranormal experiences growing up, it drew me into the world of investigating. I had some of my best experiences at the Sheboygan Asylum, and that’s how I was introduced to Fox Valley Ghost Hunters. I can’t wait to travel to exciting new places and make new friends.
Investigating has quickly become my new hobby. I look forward to many more experiences to come. Outside of the paranormal, I like to go see my favorite bands, traveling to new places, and having fun with my family and friends. I’m very grateful to be a part of this team, especially with my partner Briana, and I’m looking forward to the future.
My name is a Steve Gregory, I am here alongside my wife Cayla. Her passion for the paranormal drew me into this world as a 100% skeptic. Being an extremely logical thinker, I knew I could use the scientific method and prove how these results were being generated. I can now say, while I still have a healthy dose of skepticism, I have an open mind and have experienced things that there is no logical explanation for.
We have traveled across the US investigating locations and have introduced our children to the activity as well. They have even saved up and bought their own gear! The adventure, intrigue, historical value and knowledge of these locations truly drives us. We all want to know what’s on the other side and slowly teams are getting answers and evidence.
My day job, I am a journeyman millwright. Outside investigating, we love riding the US on our Harley or bombing the north woods on our UTV. Work hard, play harder! I love meeting all the new people on tours, and look forward to being there when you have your first paranormal encounter! It’s definitely not something you ever forget!
My name is Cayla Gregory, I am a paranormal investigator alongside my husband and our 4 children. We have traveled the United States exploring history and the unknown. The further we dove into history, the more we found ourselves looking for the ghosts that could tell the story in their own words.
The best part of investigating is uncovering the truth and helping people who may feel scared, confused, or lost in their “haunt”. As long as there is history to be uncovered, you will find me looking for the paranormal to unlock it. Outside of investigating, we just thrive on adventure and experiencing the excitement life has to offer. There is never a dull moment if you dare to ask “what if?”.
My name is Drew, I have been investigating since 2015. As a young child I felt a connection with the unknown and was introduced to the paranormal after watching TV shows and doing urban legends. I reached out to Craig to follow my interest in helping out the team. Halloween 2015 I ended up joining FVGH for the first time. I felt like I found a place where I can expand my passion, and be with others who enjoy the paranormal.
After leaving the team to focus on a busy life, I am happy to be back. Now I can share what I love with my wife Rebecca who is also on the team. Outside of FVGH I enjoy hockey, and outdoor activities including hunting and fishing. It’s great to be back with friends and start doing what I am so passionate about again
When I am not investigating, I am taking care of my house in Appleton with my husband Drew, who is also a member of the FVGH team, our beautiful daughter, and dog Cali. My hobbies include but are not limited to reading, cooking, horseback riding, hunting, and now paranormal investigating. I am honored to be a part of the Fox Valley Ghost Hunters team. I can’t wait to explore new locations and add new experiences to the ones I already have.
