Fiona is the Chief Executive and Secretary General of Paralympics New Zealand.  In this interview we talk about her childhood growing up in the UK, the role her parents played in her days as an elite athlete in Europe and how the transition to being involved in Paralympics happened.  We also talk about the role of elite sport and in particular in the context of Paralympians, what it is that they inspire in those who get to know them and understand the work they put in, what she has learned from the athletes she has met and her most joyous moments in the job (such as calling the athlete to tell them they have been selected to represent New Zealand).
