Paranormal Consulting & Investigations of New Jersey


NJ’s Best Paranormal Investigation Team!

Joanne Emmons, Founder

Occupation: Engineer - email:


Joanne became interested in the paranormal after her family moved into a house that they shared with a poltergeist in New Hope, Pennsylvania when she was ten.  She has been a student of the field ever since, and believes that as much as we think we know, there is even more that we have not yet begun to comprehend.


Joanne started PCINJ in 2011, after working as a Case Manager and leading investigations for another team. As a result of that experience she wanted to create a team that not only investigated hauntings, but was also trained to help clients deal with and resolve the many types of paranormal issues that are sometimes encountered.

She has a love of history and the stories that come with it. She's a very compassionate person who has the ability to feel any strong emotions in a room.

Kelly C. - Director of Operations, Lead Investigator & Case Manager


Kelly has had an interest in the paranormal since childhood. She has a fascination with any and all things that many find unexplainable. Reading, exploring, and attempting to find explanations for the various problems people have with the spirit world is very satisfying for her. Her desire to understand the realm of the paranormal has led her to join the PCINJ team to learn more and be able to help people experiencing the unexplained.  

On May 12th, 2021,  PCINJ lost our dearest  Rick.  After an amazing eight years with our team, Rick was very much a part of our family, and will always be.  He was always there when needed to help a client, or to just spend a fun night  hanging out in a dusty old haunted location with us.  Hotel California, Baby!  

Dayna V. - Case Manager (in training), Investigator


As a little girl, Loren was teased by her family for being so fearful of "scary things" especially the dark, which, in retrospect, is ironic... It wasn't until her pre-teen years that Loren would experience something that would change everything; she had her first encounter with a spirit. From that point on, she researched and read every Paranormal book she could get her hands on that would possibly answer her questions.


In the late 80s, Ed and Lorraine Warren lectured at her college. It was then Loren heard her first recorded EVP. She realized that this was to be her journey.  In 2009 she was invited to join New Jersey Paranormal Research and was

Dayna has been intrigued with all things paranormal after having her first experience at a very young age. In addition, having had a grandmother who fled her Verona, NJ, home in the 1930's, due to a demonic haunting, was enough to start her on a quest to learn more.  She began reading books on various paranormal subjects throughout the years.  However, after having many more personal paranormal experiences during her lifetime she thought it was time to take the next step in her research and become a paranormal investigator.  Dayna is proud to be part of such a dedicated and passionate group of paranormal researchers.  When not investigating with her PCINJ team, Dayna works as the president and founder of her nonprofit foundation, Dayna's Pink Wishes (

James grew up in northern New Jersey and has been interested in the paranormal since he was young. Having seen spirits throughout his whole life, the paranormal always intrigued him. James does not consider himself physic, but rather very “sensitive”. James took his first paranormal course in college and realized there was little scientific information on the subject, which piqued his interest even more.  He always knew there was something else besides

James is a professional photographer, so his understanding of light, shadow, and photographic manipulation, allows him to be able to validate or debunk evidence that is caught on film. Having over twenty years of experience and working with other researchers throughout the east coast, he is here to help.  As James puts it, “The truth is out there.”

Investigative Support from the Other Side

Rick has been interested in the paranormal ever since he was a little kid. He had an experience as a kid of hearing a voice from a place where nobody stood. This both scared and has intrigued him ever since. Rick joined PCINJ after PCINJ conducted an investigation of his current home where EVP picked up disturbing voices. His fascination of what was found brought out the retired law enforcement side of him by digging in and finding out what is really going on "out there."  Rick is also is a huge horror movie fan.

Amy G. Psychic Medium Consultant



As early as 5 years of age, Amy knew she was different from others. She grew up in Brooklyn, NY, in a Victorian home and considered the spirits there just part of the family. Her mother often saw her talking to a little boy, but they assumed it was an imaginary friend. As a teenager, she was dubbed the Little Witch by her friends, but it wasn’t until later in life that she decided to work on her gifts and allow herself to let go and really delve into the paranormal with a desire to help others.

Amy is a Psychic, Medium and Empath. She is a member of the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY where she continues to attend workshops and take courses to broaden her knowledge. Amy is a certified Reiki Master and certified in Integrated Energy Therapy.
