IHNZ are excited to have Jendi Paterson join the IHNZ Board as an Independent Board Member. Jendi brings with her a wealth of experience in sports at all levels. Jendi says:

“I am very excited to be the newly appointed Board Member for Inline Hockey New Zealand.

Originally from the deep deep south, I grew up on a farm with two overly competitive older brothers keeping me humble and developing my competitive nature! Boarding school and studies have ensured sport has always been at the forefront both personally and professionally my entire life. 

I now reside in Arrowtown and travel around the country for my work as a consultant.  I have earned a reputation as a proactive trouble-shooter, well networked and resilient, having been tasked with resolving key planning and strategic issues for public and private sector entities. I see this opportunity as a way to share my experience and learnings to help grow and develop IHNZ to achieve both internationally and nationally to the highest level. Whether it is on the world stage or at a local club, the sustainability and growth of our sport will be my driving focus. I look forward to working and meeting a number of you and being immersed in your sport”.
