Maureen O’Brien has resided in St. Tammany for 15 years.  Maureen was born and raised in Larose, Louisiana in lower Lafourche Parish.  She attended Nicholls State University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education (3.5 GPA) and a Master of Education degree in Administration and Supervision (4.0 GPA). While attending Nicholls State, Maureen was named as an Outstanding Young Woman of America recipient for academic excellence and achievements.

 

Maureen began her professional career as an educator, teaching in several Louisiana parishes.  She taught at public, private and Christian schools for almost two decades.  Since 2007 Maureen has worked in business doing training, Human Resources and Public Relations and has also worked as the Retired Senior Volunteer Program director for St. Tammany Parish at Volunteers of America’s Northshore Services.  She currently is on the St. Tammany West Chamber of Commerce Small Business Advisory Council and the Workforce Investment Board for St. Tammany, St. Bernard and Plaquemine’s Parish.

 

Maureen was elected in the fall of 2011 as the St. Tammany Parish Councilwoman representing District 10.  In the spring of 2012, she was elected to the St. Tammany Republican Party Executive Committee, also representing District 10, and chaired the Organizational Committee which was responsible for campaign headquarters in the parish.  She is also on the Executive Committee of the Northshore Tea Party, is a member of Church of the King, a non-denominational church in Mandeville, and a lifelong Republican.  Maureen is also a member of the Republican Professional Women of St. Tammany and has recently been asked to sit on the Three Rivers Art Festival Board.  She is a member of the 2013 class of the Leadership St. Tammany Program and was nominated for 2012 Woman of the Year by the Professional Women of St. Tammany.  Parish President Pat Brister also selected Maureen to serve on the Community Action Advisory Council for St. Tammany Parish. She has previously been on the board of the Christian Women’s Connection, a non-denominational ministry. A strong fiscal conservative, O’Brien wants honest, ethical government and more transparency.  She firmly believes that the public should have open access to the business of government.

 

Maureen began The MO Show, which airs on WGSO 990AM from New Orleans, LA in December of 2011 with the goal of informing the public about Northshore and Regional issues.  The show covers government, politics, business, sports, local talent and community events.  Her desire is to keep people informed, hoping to get more people involved in government, and present the best of St. Tammany and our region.

    Maureen, your show on Thursday with Tim Burns and Carol Fox was terrific! The way you clarified what the “yes” and “no” votes would mean was outstanding for me. I usually struggle mightily with the meaning of the ill worded ammendments. And the Libya debacle needs to be known, so thanks for having Ms. Fox on the show.

  7. Maureen, love your shows, must be a big Aerosmith fan given the bumper music you play for your show
