Patricia O’Brien has been the Financial Officer at The Belfry Theatre for much longer than she cares to admit. For over 10 years she concurrently held the position of General Manager at Story Theatre, a touring Theatre for Young Audiences company whose mandate includes promoting literacy and language arts for 5 – 12 year olds and their families. As a change from the arts, she also manages a concrete form-works company. She serves as Treasurer on the board of Movie Monday (a community-based mental health/arts program) and is a past board member / advocate of many non-profit organizations.
Born in Montreal, Patricia lived in Ontario, Newfoundland, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Prince Edward Island before settling in Victoria (well) over 30 years ago. She home-schooled her three children decades before COVID-19 made it a “thing”. When she isn’t knitting or reading, she tries to spend as much time as she can in her garden or the pool, and is thrilled to be a member of the CCPA board.
