The Wheeler Centre’s Marketing Director, Pauline O'Brien, has worked in marketing roles across the arts, tourism and not-for-profit sectors - including time spent at Amnesty International, The Australian Ballet, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Melbourne Theatre Company. Pauline joined the Wheeler Centre in mid-2009, prior to its official launch. Born and raised in Melbourne, Pauline currently lives in the Yarra Valley region northeast of Melbourne.
Kenneth Cook’s Wake in Fright made a huge impression on her as a teenager and began something of an obsession with the outback. This led Pauline to a job working part-time as a cook on coach camping tours around Australia for a couple of years, taking trips to place like the Tanami and Oodnadatta tracks.
Pauline has a Bachelor of Arts degree (English Literature) and a Masters of Business (Marketing).
