Amy Allan

Hometown:  Denver, Colo.

Amy Allan utilizes her medium abilities in Travel Channel’s series, “The Dead Files,” where she works with retired homicide detective Steve DiSchiavi to solve unexplained paranormal phenomena in haunted locations across America. Allan communicates with the dead, often assuming their role and reliving their death; DiSchiavi uses his years of detective experience to search for physical evidence. When Allan and DiSchiavi come together at the end to share their findings to each homeowner, the parallels between their discoveries are powerfully revealed in each shocking conclusion.

Allan’s interest in paranormal phenomena began at age four when she says she was tormented by “shadow people” in her Arvada, Colo. home. Ever since, Allan has been on a journey to unravel the mysteries of the unexplained.

In addition to being mentored by world-renowned parapsychologist, Dr. William Roll, Allan studied psychology at the University of Arizona. Her abilities have been examined and tested by leading parapsychologists. She has worked with private investigators and police agencies, and has conducted more than 500 investigations in both private homes and businesses.

She currently resides in Los Angeles, Calif.
