Originally trained in the United Kingdom as a registered nurse and social worker, Dr.Angela Thompson Smith worked in medical research in New Jersey while volunteering with the Psychophysical Research Laboratories (PRL). She was eventually hired by the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory and served for five years as a member of the staff, participating in almost every part of the Lab’s functions, as well as becoming one of their most prolific operators. In the mid-1990s she trained in controlled remote viewing with Paul H. Smith and Lyn Buchanan, and was one of the Founders of the International Remote Viewing Association. Since then she has been training others in remote viewing and consulting in the U.S. and abroad through her Mindwise Consulting company, and writing.  Her books include Seer, Tactical Remote Viewing, and the soon to be released Scribe.
