Amy Bruni from 'Kindred Spirits' grew up in an actual haunted house.

Amy Bruni, 44, who is known for her ghost-hunting skills in Kindred Spirits and Ghost Hunters (which she was on between 2008 and 2014), was born in a haunted house in Alameda, Calif. Instead of being scared of her home, she and her family embraced it, and because of her father's ghost-sleuthing skills, she became interested in investigating paranormal activity herself. But before she became a professional ghost hunter, she worked in health insurance for a decade.

She eventually quit the health insurance industry to pursue her true passion, and got a job as a professional paranormal activity researcher. She traveled across the U.S. looking into specific cases, and eventually joined the Atlantic Paranormal Society.

The founders, Grant Wilson and Jason Haws, started Ghost Hunters, which she eventually became a part of. After that, she became a producer of the podcast, Beyond Reality Radio. In 2019, she published her book, Life With the Afterlife: 13 Truths I Learned About Ghosts.

Amy's other ventures also include her own business: a boutique paranormal travel company called Strange Escapes. You can visit the website to find out more on how you can plan a weekend trip based around haunted houses and events.

The site explains: "Every Strange Escapes event will feature in depth investigations of some of the largest, most haunted locations in the United States. Plus, lectures from paranormal notables, television personalities, authors and more. You will shake their hands, pick their brains, and perhaps even sit down to dinner with them. You will learn and see things you never knew were possible, and you will leave knowing that you’re not alone in your beliefs."
