Peta MacKinnon comes to the IMF with an extensive and impressive sports background. A former Olympic Hockeyroo, Peta has plenty of experience in taking on challenges at the highest level.
“I’m passionate about contributing to the great work and positive impact the foundation is having on Indigenous communities. I love being part of a team environment and working alongside people who are motivated, committed and dedicated to achieving something special. Working at the IMF provides just that!
“Sport and keeping fit and healthy have always been a big part of my life, so having the opportunity to work in an organisation that uses marathon running and health promotion to help drive social change and to make a real difference is very rewarding.”
Peta also plans to complete a full marathon one day. “I’m one of the only people in the office not to have run a marathon, so the challenge has been set!”
Peta remains actively involved in local hockey as a club player, coach and committee member, and has two young sons who help keep her fit.
Peta holds a Bachelor of Sports Science in Sports Coaching and a Certificate III in Fitness. She has previously worked in University Sport, as a development officer for Hockey ACT and has run her own hockey coaching business.
