Patricia O’Brien brings nearly 30 years of experience to Thinkubator Media in the areas of higher education, healthcare, and manufacturing, working for both B2B and B2C organizations.
She is an experienced senior-level communications and public relations consultant specializing in customer communications, content creation, public relations, media relations, crisis communications, brand development and execution, strategic planning, and special events.
Throughout her entire career, her passion for the written word and project management have been at the core of everything she does. Pat has written thousands of professional documents (including ghostwriting for many senior-level executives and CEOs), organized dozens of events, and coordinated the development of more than two dozen websites.
Pat began her professional career in 1989 in broadcast television, working as a sports reporter and anchor for WNEP-TV Channel 16 in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA market. She was the first female on-air sports broadcaster in the market, and one of a handful nationwide at that time.
She and her husband, Tom, a retired Pennsylvania State Trooper, have two adult daughters, Marley and Emily, and an adorable English Labrador retriever, Charlie. They reside on a lake in northeastern Pennsylvania, where they enjoy hiking, boating, kayaking, and watching sunsets from their dock.
