Kate O’Brien works part-time as an administrator and bookkeeper at a school in Chiswick. Previously she worked for a software company.
Her family moved to Richmond in 1981 and all her four children attended local schools. Kate served as a Governor at The Vineyard School during this time. She has been a Samaritan and a Cruse Bereavement Volunteer in the past.
In her spare time, as well as enjoying spending time with her grandchildren, she is a keen reader (she was the founder member of a book group which has been running continuously since 1984!), enjoys the cinema and walks in the many green spaces in the borough.
Kate joined the Trustee Board of The Richmond Charities in January 2019 and is also a member of the Welfare Committee and the Safeguarding Group.
