Kathleen Marden is widely known for her work as a scientific ufologist specializing in alien abduction/ET contact and experiencer advocacy. Her interest in UFOs dates back to 1961, when her aunt, Betty Hill, phoned her nearby home to report that she and Barney had encountered a flying saucer in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
A primary witness to the evidence of the UFO abduction and the aftermath, Kathleen has intimate knowledge of the Hill’s biographical histories, investigation files, and scientific interest in their sensational experience. Betty’s scientific contact experiments may have led to Kathy’s personal memories of contact—memories that were undisclosed for nearly 50 years. This led to a personal journey of exploration, leaving no stone unturned, to find answers through scholarly work, investigation and social research. Kathleen is the author of three books and many essays. She is associated with the Mutual UFO Network, as its Director of Experiencer Research; the Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters, as an Advisory Board member and consultant to its research subcommittee; and an experiencer advocate for Starborn Support .
