Katrina Maximchuk - Executive Director (on maternity leave)

Katrina joined the Paralympic Sports Association as Executive Director in August of 2020. She has dedicated her career to ensuring individuals who experience disability have opportunities to engage in sport, physical activity and leisure. Katrina has been involved with PSA in some capacity for a number years. First, as a family member of a participant, then as a Board member. She is thrilled for this journey to have come full circle and to take on a leadership role in the organization. For Katrina, being active is important for more than just physical health - it’s also about the people you meet and the friendships you make while pursuing your favorite sport or activity.  She looks forward to continuing to find unique and inclusive ways for getting more people, in more places, active more often!
