Kate O’Brien is a multi-passionate creative and outdoor enthusiast. In 2019, Kate stepped away from a long career in commercial interior design, to pursue a different creative path and lifestyle. She relocated to her historic Hill Country property, tending to her AirBNB, gardens, cats, dogs, numerous chickens and one longtime boyfriend. From there, she does a few projects each year, particularly designing interiors for the homes of severely wounded veterans.
Kate was introduced to tomahawk throwing several years ago, on an expedition in the Tetons, with her sons. She later honed her skills under the guidance of a national tomahawk throwing champion. After posting some images on social media, Kate found others were interested in learning about this growing sport. “Texas Hawks “ was soon launched as an offering at retreats, fundraisers and corporate team building. Kate finds the activity seems to especially resonate with women, combining stress relief with a feeling of empowerment. And can’t we all benefit from some of that?
As a tomahawk throwing coach, Kate encourages women to focus on the intention, which brings a sense of power, not limited by physical strength or ability. Texas Tomahawk Throwing with K8 will be offered as a Lucky Star Extra.
