Glenys Atkins, Community Engagement & Impact

Glenys has been a part of Border Trust in one way or another since it commenced in 2005.

Having recently stepped down from the Executive Officer position, Glenys’s remains with Border Trust in Community Engagement & Impact.

“I’m part of the furniture here now, but I’ve always worked in and loved the charitable sector – it’s where my heart is. I really can’t imagine it any other way!”

Away from the office, life is simple and happy – a partner and dogs, three adult children, extended family and friends in Perth and Melbourne.
