I’m Catriona McBean

and I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Waikato and I work for dsport in Wellington.  This research is supported by a University of Waikato Doctoral Scholarship in Disability Sport.

I have worked and volunteered in sport and active recreation for over 35 years. My roles in sport include leading Swimming NZ, Sport & Exercise Science NZ, and Orienteering NZ. In active recreation I have worked for Water Safety NZ and held volunteer roles in outdoor multisport events.

Over the last decade I have been actively involved in disability sport. I am a Paralympics New Zealand board member and I do volunteer work for the International Paralympic Committee in Oceania. In 2018 I was a volunteer at the Winter Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang and I hope to be at the Tokyo games in 2021.
