About Shay

Born in 1974 in our nation’s capital, Washington, DC, Shay Parker was raised in a middle-class, modest family of 5. Shay enjoyed a childhood and rich with love, home cooking, a lot of family time, cookouts, camping trips, and more.

From an early age, Shay was taught the importance of responsibility and hard work. With her first job at the young age of 13, she enjoyed spending weekends sweeping hair and acting as the shampoo girl in her grandparent’s hair salon.

Shay continued to work throughout middle school and high school, and eventually graduated college with a visual arts degree in Web design. She began her self-employment career very early, working in a variety of different capacities from home.

Throughout the course of her early life, Shay always held a very left brained, skeptical viewpoint. Although she had definite interest in the paranormal, it was not a mind-set that she readily accepted.

It was not until she moved into a 100-year-old cabin in the mountains of North Carolina that she readily acknowledged the existence of the spirit world. Shay had several personal experiences with spirits that seemed to occupy the cabin. These experiences included verbal as well as physical types of communication. Because Shay was able to see and hear for herself that something other than a live human being was occupying her home, it solidified for her that life after death does exist.

This was a defining moment in Shay’s life, and it acted as the precipice for the creation of her online directory, Best American Psychics. That later led into the creation of Best American Healers, as well as her two radio shows, Metaphysical Minds and Best of the Best. Best American Psychics and Best American Healers are Internet directories which focus on promoting professional, ethical, and reliable practitioners who specialize in metaphysical fields. On Metaphysical Minds radio show, Shay has interviewed some of the top metaphysical minds in the world, those that are true Crusaders of Change across the globe – Shirley MacLaine, Melissa Etheridge, Lisa Niemi Swayze, James Van Praagh, Michelle Whitedove, and John Holland are just a few.
