Meet the Staff for Shadows & Smoke
Lead Investigator and Chapter Coordinator
Stephen is a proud Scorpio and considers the so-called "negative" traits of that sign as strengths to celebrate rather than stifle.
Kristine is the Case Manager for Shadows & Smoke and has had experiences since she was a young girl, which parked her interest in the paranormal field. As a member of Shadows & Smoke, Kristin is studying all aspects of the paranormal and uses her skills as an educator to interview clients and assess locations.
Investigator & Cryptozoologist
Teri grew up in Tucson AZ loving the great outdoors and participating in
camping, hiking, fishing and cave exploration with her family. As a child, she
would rescue, small, sick or injured animals and baby birds, nurse them back to
health and release them back in to the wild. In college she studied Marine
Biology at the CEDO (Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans)
Institute in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. On a winter day in February of 2010, Teri
and her husband were out in a remote part of their property and discovered a
set of 14 inch long, bare footprints in the snow. When she started inquiring
around the Edgewood, NM area about the possibility of there being Big Foot
living nearby, the most common response was… “Well, there are all those caves
under the town of Edgewood, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were Big Foot
living there.” Spurred on by the “what ifs” Teri took online classes and in
2013, she became a certified Cryptozoologist. She has been hunting Big Foot,
Chupacabras, Aliens and the paranormal ever since.
