Meet the team
Karen Tatro, a Certified Spirit Medium
Karen Tatro lives in NH with her husband Steve and children, Nicole and Garrett. From the time she was a small child, Karen has had a deep connection with the spirit world. She could see, hear and feel the presence of spirits and knew that, beyond her intellect; the Divine Spirit world existed and was all around. Growing up as a sensitive, she often describes her life as having, "one foot on Earth and one in the Clouds". Karen embraces and shares her abilities with people for the purpose of inspiration, wisdom, education, and healing.
Tatro’s credentials and abilities in the paranormal field have leaded her to appear on two national TV shows dealing with paranormal content: Syfy Channel's Ghost Hunters TAPS, and The Biography Channel’s My Ghost Story. WMUR Channel 9 news recently interviewed and filmed Karen while she and her partner investigated the Ellacoya Country Store in Gilford, NH in 2014. She has also been featured on several New Hampshire radio stations, including WOKQ 95.7 where she was interviewed regarding her involvement with the famously “caught on video” ghost at the small Gilford store.
Tatro is also a published author of a children's book, “I’m A Super Hero ~ I’m not Afraid of Ghosts!” It is a wonderful book for families who have children of all ages that are sensitive and afraid of their bedrooms at night; afraid of ghosts and things they might sense but cannot see or quite understand. She is a paranormal & Spiritual Event Host for the general public, which allows them to explore these amazing locations and their own intuitive abilities and interests in the paranormal field. She also travels throughout the NH, and Southern MA holding private mediumship galleries in private homes for a small gathering of guests. She has an office in Keene NH for personal readings, workshops and gatherings for the general public. Karen is currently working on a TV Pilot with an NBC producer featuring her work as a medium.
SPIRIT ADVENTURES TEAM
*Spirit Adventures is the Core Team of Karen Tatro Spirit Medium. Although Karen will not be hosting this evening, she has handpicked her best team that truly represents Karen's Core beliefs in the Paranormal field. Nicole Tatro; Karen's event manager and daughter is the event host! Along with Karen's investigators, Jim and Teresa Welcome. You will have a blast!!!
"I’m an intuitive, paranormal investigator who has been investigating alongside my mom for 10 years. I’ve investigated a variety of different locations from private homes to many famously haunted places such as the Lizzie Borden house and the S.K Pierce Mansion. I’ve been featured on the show My Ghost Story for my paranormal work. I’ve investigated the Conjuring House multiple times over the past year, and I’m always intrigued to return and learn more. I also run a home bakery, Colie’s Kitchen, in Dover, NH where I deliver and ship a variety of baked goods. My website for ordering information is www.colies-kitchen.com. You can follow along my paranormal and foodie adventures on my TikTok, @spookychick123."
Jim and Teresa Welcome
Jim and Teresa Welcome have been investigating with Karen and Nicole over a span of many years. The couple began investigating with their two daughters, often calling the trips the family takes around New England “family time,” since each of them have all had experiences with the spirit world and enjoy exploring the paranormal world. They are incredibly fun to be around and have insightful ways in which they communicate with spirits, often using a combination of tools and intuitive sight.
Welcome aboard Angie!! Angie has been an incredible colleague, working with me on my private cases as my research assistant. Her work has been invaluable to me!

Karen Tatro ~ Spirit Medium
Public and Private Investigation Protocol and Ethics
These are the basic guidelines and expectations that I have for everyone attending my public or private investigations.
My goal for the evening is to have each of us use our abilities to gather researchable information from the spirits who are residing. What I mean by researchable is that we need to ask, in whichever way possible, questions to the spirits to help identify them. Don’t spend a ton of time asking questions that can not be researched; such as asking them to do things like turn the light on, or turn the light off, or can you leave your voice, or tell us how many are in a room, etc… This investigation is about identification; male/female, age, why they are there at the location, are they connected in some way to the property, what did they do for work, how did they die, what are the reasons they have not moved on? Do they have family in the town, etc.. ask questions that can help tie them to the property and can be researched.
When investigating, always remember that many spirits at times can be attempting to answer a question. I see this often with many people in a room trying to use tools and ask questions. For this reason, I encourage dividing up into small groups. This helps to really connect and gather information one on one from the spirit/spirits. Make sure you ask simple questions, and re-check those questions again. Remember that all spirits don’t always answer honestly, so keep this in mind. Some want to tell you exactly who they are, and some are a bit hesitant. Gather as much as you can from one spirit at a time and allow them time to answer. Use devices that you can get answers to. Use your senses for those who are mediums and sensitives and then use rods or pendulums or flashlights to get more of a connection to questions from the spirit.
Gathering physical evidence is good and needed here also, and why some of you are coming to gather some evp’s and video. We have a nice balance of tech and sensitive attending and each have their own style of investigating.
Understand that each sensitive person that is attending needs to be able to not be interrupted when they are investigating. Many of us who are mediums/sensitive need to wander where we are drawn and need to be able to sit and talk to the spirit without any interruptions. If you see someone lost in thought, or pondering and tuning in, please do not interrupt them.
Please also note:
This is a valuable location so please be respectful to the property.
All evidence including pictures, audio, and research that is found, needs to be shared with Karen Tatro. It is not for me to attempt to own, but I need to be the one contacting the owner in regard to what the investigation has gathered. When it comes time to present to the owner, a full case profile with evidence, this will be given to the owner at one time. PLEASE DO NOT message the owner.
All people participating in the investigation are encouraged to share a written observation of your experiences, opinions, evidence and such in a document that I can add to the file or on the Facebook group if you wish. Often comparing all the information can really give a good overall view and also validation for the owner. It is amazing how many will have similar experiences as yours but never share. So it helps bring conversation and validation to all who maybe don't speak up.
Each person participating will sign a basic waiver for Karen Tatro and the property home owner..
Anyone arriving visibly under the influence and is disruptive to the evening will be asked to leave with no refunds of the evening. We are all here to have a great time, however, excessive behavior under the influence is not accepted.
There are no ceremonies or Crossing spirit over at my events. This is not the proper place to conduct crossing over spirits. PERIOD! My personal view on crossing spirits over is that this is something that is done when the medium has established a friendship of trust and integrity with the spirit needing assistance. There are many deeply rooted reasons why a spirit is feeling stuck in a location, and often these are deeply emotional situations that the spirit alone needs to help release. Much like seeing a therapist, where the therapist helps the client release their own inner struggles so they can move on and live freely. Being a Medium is much like being a therapist for spirits in need of assistance. If you feel that a spirit is in need of assistance, you are to let Karen Tatro know and she will assess this situation at a different time with the owner of the establishment. *If I hear or see anyone attempting to do this, you will be asked to leave with no refunds.
Please be respectful that everyone attending has their own belief systems on many important topics with the afterlife, such as religious beliefs and personal beliefs based on experience. We are not here to project our own beliefs on guests attending. I pride myself on allowing people to attend my events to experience for themselves the spirits that reside and many times these experiences can be highly life changing and often experiences can be purposely designed for that individual by the spirits residing or their own spirit guides that walk with them. What they may be experiencing is for them alone and no one else to critique or judge.
PLEASE VIEW THE WAIVERS! ALL THOSE ATTENDING MUST SIGN THE WAIVER INORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EVENING'S EVENTS.
