Meet The Team

Have you come to one of our tours in the past, or maybe to one of our murder/mystery dinners? Wonder who all of those people are running around with the Dark Shadow Ghost Tours staff shirts or buttons? Well, here is a listing of the Dark Shadow Ghost Tours' team and a little about each of the team members. This way, when you see us on tour, you know what we are and why we do what we do.

Marianne and Shawn Donley

Shawn and Marianne Donley - Owners

Shawn and Marianne began looking into the paranormal just as something to do different on a vacation to St. Augustine, Florida. Since this was a return trip to this location, they wanted to take tours and see a different side of the city. The first ghost tour they ever took was to the infamous St. Augustine Lighthouse. "We toured this place during the day in 2006, but when we went back in 2010, we wanted to see the lighthouse at night," says Shawn. Little did they know that this vacation would start their journey into paranormal research and eventually Dark Shadow Ghost Tours. Shawn is the executive producer of the tours and dinners and is involved with the research of the different locations. He is an Internet Marketing consultant for small businesses and a Technology Coordinator for the same school district that Marianne teaches. Marianne is a biology teacher (and our resident skeptic) and tries to debunk as much evidence as she can. She is involved in graphic design for events and historical research. Marianne produces the print materials and prop creation for the events as well. She is also involved in the production of the murder/mystery dinners and is our green screen photography expert.

As a young child I have always had the interest in paranormal activity. My grandmother used to have visions of the future and I used to have sleep-overs with my cousin where we would witness shadow figures in the cemetery next to my aunt's house. When I first got involved with PANICd.com and DSGT, it was for just helping my son and daughter-in-law (Shawn and Marianne) with their business and then I found the paranormal activity and the history of the locations we visited very interesting and different. I bring to DSGT the positive attitude of having fun and helping with whatever I can to make it a success. My plans for the future is to always be there to be a team member and to help out in a positive way to continue the success of DGST that it has today.

I have always been fascinated in the paranormal, especially ghost and spirits, since I was a little girl. Reading and watching what information I could find about ghosts and why they may be still here. I am a daughter, wife, mother to three wonderful kids, and have many interests including scrapbooking, general crafting, reading, playing on the computer, and hanging out with my friends and family. I joined DSGT and PANICd.com in 2013 and look forward to many more adventures, meeting more people that have the same interest in the paranormal like myself, learning how to analyze paranormal evidence, and having fun.

Mike and Lee Mizenko

For over 40 years, Mike have been researching and investigating the paranormal. Through the years, he has been involved with many groups and has performed numerous investigations. Lee has been researching the paranormal for over 30 years. In 2008 Mike met Lee on a paranormal investigation and their lives were changed forever. Not only did they team up as paranormal investigators, but they have also become husband and wife and since then have helped several people with their paranormal needs. Mike is not only an investigator that can conduct research and investigations, but he is also an ordained minister which in turn allows this team to perform house blessings and cleansings. Mike and Lee joined up with Dark Shadow Ghost Tours and PANICd.com in the early part of 2014 and you can visit with them on most of our tours and at our dinner shows. Not only are they paranormal investigators, but they play a key role in planning, marketing, and organizing our events.

Janice Hayne

I started off with Dark Shadow Ghost Tours as a guest. I was on the first trip to Zoar Village and became hooked and told Shawn to be sure and let me know every time they go out on tour. I like the history of old houses and buildings. Hearing the stories as to why the spirits are probably still there and what happened to within the buildings is so much better to be heard while you are on location then by reading about it. One of my greatest thrills is to witness when the spirits are trying to communicate with you, and I cannot wait for future tours.

Amanda Crytzer

Amanda Crytzer

The house that I grew up in is haunted, that originally sparked my interest in the paranormal and ghost hunting. As I grew older I began to research the subjects which intrigued me even more. I have seen, heard, and even felt things which are unexplainable. I joined DSGT in 2013, my great organizational skills, love for teaching others, and customer service skills make me a unique team member. I'm currently a student, graduating June 2014, with my associate's degree in nursing. I plan to pursue my master's degree and specialize in women's health. I am a teaching assistant and tutor for the nursing program. I'm married and have a very active and curious 4 year old.

Ever since I was a young lad and long before Ghostb Hunters was on TV I have had a profound interest in all things Fortean. I have read everything I could get my hands on and attending seminars about parapsychology, cryptozoology and Ufology. In the early 90's I decided to join (MUFON) The Mutual UFO Network and other organizations like (NEOBFR) North East Ohio Bigfoot Research, (NPRPT) New Port Richey Phantom Trackers and now and Dark Shadows. I have a background in security, private investigating, animal science and freelance art and writing. I pride myself on professionalism, being a scientific and objective investigator and always respecting the clients anonymity, property and testimony no matter what.
