Lake Linden, Mich. (PRWEB) May 3, 2006 –-
Michigan Bigfoot expert and certified Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) field investigator Lisa Shiel will be the featured speaker at the May 7, 2006, meeting of the Michigan MUFON chapter at Walli's East Restaurant in Burton, Michigan (near Flint). During her presentation of “Bigfoot and UFOs,” she will present the results of years of personal research into both phenomena and clearly explain the usually overlooked connections between them.
Shiel is a recognized expert on Bigfoot, having been interviewed in newspapers and on radio and TV. She recently founded the Michigan Upper Peninsula Bigfoot Organization (MUPBO) to probe sightings in the region and provide UP residents a source for information. Shiel earned her certification as a MUFON field investigator in January and is the only certified UFO investigator in Michigan’s UP. Shiel developed her research skills through earning a master’s degree in library science and certification as a professional librarian.
