Shari DeBenedetti was born in Schenectady, New York and now lives in Boston, MA. She became interested in the paranormal field at a very young age as she experienced many strange and unexplained things. But it wasn’t until 1996 when she was in her 20’s that she began to research and investigate the paranormal, because the house she lived in at the time was believed to be haunted. Shari and her family had many frightening experiences there. That’s when she decided to start investigating with her friends and eventually formed a team. Shari wanted to help others who were also experiencing paranormal activity so that they would be comfortable living in their homes.
Shari first met Jason Hawes at a T.A.P.S. paranormal event many years ago and has remained friends with him, and other team members for many years.
She was a paranormal investigator on seasons 10 and 11 on Ghost Hunters (Syfy Channel) and on Season 2 of Ghost Nation (Travel Channel/ Discovery Plus).
When she’s not on the road filming, Shari enjoys spending time at home with her two children and she also still works part-time at an engineering firm. She also still conducts private investigations with a few local teams in her area.
