Growing up in a smaller town, Karen Rontowski always felt like she did not truly belong. 

“People will notify me that they grew up in Los Angeles, and I’ll say ‘Oh, my God, that sounds like the finest lifestyle ever!” she claimed. 

All she understood was that she preferred to get out of Pittsfield, Massachusetts, inhabitants 43,000. And become a tarot card reader. And a paranormal investigator.
