More About the Author
Prof. Kelly is the President and Professor of Scientific Parapsychology (Consciousness Studies) at the University of Alternative Studies, an international higher education institution offering academic degree programs and introductory courses in Professional Scientific Parapsychology. UAS was founded in 2009 to provide 21st century cutting-edge consciousness education regardless of location or prior education, to stimulate public interest in Parapsychology, and to support psychical research initiatives. UAS education involves current interdisciplinary research in Parapsychology, Biophysics, Psychology, Neuroscience, and Quantum Physics. UAS Website: http://qpsychics.com/university/
She is the Director of Psychical Research and Development at QPPResearch. Process-Oriented Ontological Phenomenological Modeling & Profiling Research in the area of Exceptional Experiences (ExE's) since 1998. Her research began as phenomenological qualitative research via methods of: individual interviews, focus groups, and observation (semi-structured and unstructured) and analyzing qualitative data via content analysis. Her research was primary focused on spontaneous cases resulting from chronic stress and crisis situations. Today, her research includes the study of the mechanics, dynamics, and behavior of the nature of being and existence with respect to the rigorous and exhaustive organization of the interdisciplinary knowledge domain of Exceptional Experiences in a categorical manner that contains all relevant types, subtypes, specifiers, and criteria.
In addition, she develops hypothetical and theoretical models that are comprehensive and non-contradicting descriptions of complex processes based on thousands of cases of subjective experiences and over 100 years of empirical findings derived from scientific experiment and observation rather than theory. She extrapolates (i.e. draw from specific cases of exceptional experiences for more general cases) where specific cases are cases that she has been following for many years where the individual has a nearly "pure" type. That is to say, they score in the upper 90% in one specific type based on an assessment she developed (Psychical Profiling Assessment) and have been refining for many years. She then analyzes the extent to which the experiences and personality of experients exhibit various characteristics in order to classify. She released her 16 type profiles associated with the PPA, a highly structured psychological instrument (an 80-item assessment), which was lined up to the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) in 2010.

Prof. Kelly is a professional Member of the Rhine Research Center, which has been researching the experimental science of parapsychology for the past 70 years. Today the Rhine Center continues the mission of its founder, J.B. Rhine, the father of parapsychology, with a broadened scope directed deeper into the Study of Consciousness. Prof. Kelly is also a Member of the Metaphysical Society of America, which was founded in 1950 for promoting the study of metaphysics and continues to exist as a forum for the consideration of the fundamental questions of the philosophical tradition. The society is a member of the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS).

I was incapable of entering formal academics due to a total and permanent (neuro-sensory) disability (i.e. cannot qualify for financial aid), but that did not stop me from keeping my nose in books and journals and my heart in research. Much of my written works have been written with oversight by highly academically and professionally qualified individuals in the fields of psychology, consciousness studies and academic scientific parapsychology.
