Kati Ackermann (Founder & Investigator):
Hello! My name is Kati. I formed VSPI in 2006; however I’ve been interested in the paranormal for over 30 years.
I've had a number of experiences in my life, that include seeing apparitions, and spirit(s) reaching out to me directly. I decided to use my skills and learn from others through the vast field of the paranormal.
I am intuitive, and help clients read the energy of their home, or themselves, and perform cleansings if needed. I have guided all sort of people, using methods such as "stone throwing", walking a labyrinth, one or two card tarot readings and more. If you need personal help, please reach out to me.
I’ve also discovered my thrill of being an amateur historical researcher & a Taphophile (love cemeteries). -- One tip I’d share is to listen to your inner voice, your intuition. It is always honest and speaks loudly.

John Mallory (Investigator & Equipment Tech):
Hello, my name is John Mallory. I have been interested in the paranormal since I was a young child. My interest in technology and adventure is a natural fit for this fascinating field. I am primarily interested in collecting evidence to support my belief that other worlds likely exist outside our own. I was hooked after my first investigation and knew I had found a hobby I was truly passionate about.
Over time, our group has accumulated a respectable amount of high tech equipment and I have made it my personal mission to ensure our team is armed with the most up to date technology available.
I believe in treating our team, our clients and any spirits we might encounter with the utmost respect. If evidence is out there, we are well equipped to capture it!

Jules Stirling (Investigator):
When I was 8 years old I was having dinner with my parents and their friends in an old, renovated schoolhouse. I could see a man and his dog keeping watch over us. I knew I was seeing something out of the ordinary. I asked the owner of the building who this man was and he said "oh, that's our resident ghost - he was the caretaker here in life, and he still watches the place from the other side." It must have been a weird question coming from an 8 year old, but I'm very thankful that he answered me honestly, and didn't make it seem creepy or scary. He went on to tell me how they were happy to have him there. The owners were sure the "caretaker" would somehow alert them if there was a major problem, like a fire. It made me very comfortable with my ability to see things from the other side.
Natasha Balabanov (Investigator):
Hi my name is Natasha Balabanov. My whole life I have been curious about the paranormal and looking for ways to learn more about it. After several intense and inexplicable experiences I reached out to Vancouver Spooks and an investigation was done in my own home. It was a huge relief to realize that "Hey, I'm not imagining this!" and be around people who truly understood what it was like, and accepted your experiences as real.
I was lucky enough to be included as a member of the team after that and have been learning and developing my skills ever since. I like the aspect of helping people deal with the experiences they have had, as I have been there myself!
