Morgan O’Brien

Senior Manager of Events

My role at Family Reach is: Senior Manager of Events.

Family Reach inspires me because: Being a part of a mission that makes families lives easier, brighter and a bit more hopeful during their courageous battle against cancer is what inspires me to work hard for Family Reach.

The most unusual thing I’ve done for my job is: One time I sampled over 30 flavors of ice cream in one sitting. My high school summer job was scooping ice cream, and I wanted to make sure I had tried all the flavors before making recommendations to customers!

When I’m not at Family Reach you can find me: Well, if it’s the summer then you can find me at New Silver Beach with my family. Other than that, I can be found in the North End with my friends, on a run or talking on the phone.

Most people don’t know that I: One time played a cow in my high school’s performance of “Into the Woods.”

If I could spend time with one person, past or present, it would be: My grandmother, we called Cici, who lost her battle to cancer in 2011. She had a deep love for art, her family and was always a ray of sunshine in our lives.

One item I’d like to check off my bucket list: I’d like to become certified in creating floral arrangements.
