Patrick and Patricia have been happily married for over twenty-eight years. Their company, Mesmerized Paranormal Investigations, assists people in searching for answers to questions that may have been unanswered for a very long time. The Mesmer’s have also operated a very successful and well-received ghost/ historical tour business, Port Salerno Ghost Tours, in their hometown for the past eight seasons. Patrick is the historian/agnostic and official debunker, and Patricia is the hard-core believer. Patricia’s passion for the paranormal is rooted in several significant childhood experiences that changed her life so dramatically that she has been searching for answers ever since. The two of them have been formally conducting paranormal investigations since the late 80’s. It seems that the popularity of the paranormal has caught on in a big way on the Treasure Coast!
