About Glenda
Glenda is thrilled to be a member of Tamarack’s Vibrant Communities team as a Manager of Cities, Cities Deepening Community.
 
Glenda has her Master of Arts in Community Development from the University of Victoria and brings 17 years of community development experience to the position.  She has seen firsthand the magic of neighbourhoods and the power of communities through her previous work with the City of Kelowna and with a grassroots non-profit organization. Glenda played a lead role in developing a provincially recognized neighbourhood development program, and supported the creation of a community-driven strategy to address homelessness. She believes wholeheartedly that communities know best what they need and how to go about making life even better for everyone. She values courageous conversations, knowing that when communities dig deep and lean into each other, new possibilities emerge.
 
Glenda calls Salmon Arm, BC home where she lives with her furry friend Sadie. When she’s not out snowshoeing or camping, she spends her time trying out new hobbies. She is currently attempting to learn to box, crochet and play the ukulele.
