Patricia Marin - Founder


Patricia grew up in a haunted house in Baltimore, Maryland, and is descended from a family of Irish psychics on her mother’s side. At the age of 12, she began her lifelong study of metaphysics, eventually becoming a third degree initiate of a Western Mystery School.  Pat is also a Reiki Master and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.  She studied journalism at the University of Maryland and has worked as a lobbyist on Capitol Hill and as a public relations specialist in Washington DC. Pat was a proposal manager with MCI/Verizon and with General Dynamics prior to starting The Marin Group, Inc., a consulting company focused on business development and proposal support for government contractors, both large and small.  She founded Research and Investigation of the Paranormal (R.I.P.) in 2008. Pat created “The R.I.P. Files”  because she wanted to bring the public a paranormal series that is 100% real.  She continues to serve as executive producer and writer for the series, as well as the narrator on each episode. "The R.I.P. Files" features a female led team, unusual experiments, and amazing EVPs.  Pat also served as the “Ghost Hunting Examiner” for Examiner.com for more than five years and gained an international readership for her in-depth articles that covered all aspects of the paranormal.
