KERRYN (KERRY) O’BRIEN
Consultant, Regional business development with a generous splash of environmental and social science
Always a traveller and a student of life, Kerry O’Brien has a tenacity to follow her passions and chase her dreams. With interests piqued by biology, sport, the great outdoors, community and sustainability, Kerry has worked within research organisations in plant science (e.g. CSIRO), in commercial viticulture and environmental operations, and with government organisations in the utilities industry (environment and social sciences). While Kerry is a strong community advocate helping rural women and regional organisations in a voluntary capacity, she still finds time to follow her out-of-control hobby of sports injury management (recently returning from Rio at her 4th Olympic games), as well as planning and developing a sustainable farming venture in rural Queensland.
