Kenda Tanner, Secretary / Treasurer
I moved to Sublette county in 1992 and enjoyed a career in the insurance industry for nearly 17 years. I decided to leave my position there in order to be more available for my family and to have more time to give back to the community that has treated me so well. While I have served on many youth organization boards, it is the time I have spent sitting on the board at the Sublette Center that I feel is most valuable. Living in a small, rural community allows one to see the real importance of being able to provide necessary services to our aging friends and family without having to travel 100 miles or more. The Sublette Center is valuable asset to our community and I am proud to be a part of such a caring organization.

Born and raised in Sublette County, I am passionate about the welfare of both our human and natural environment. With a career in natural resource management, and now a mother of two vibrant boys, I am delighted to serve on the Sublette Center Board of Directors. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to live with and care for my dear Grandmother late in her life, eventually transitioning her to the Sublette Center. Though a difficult decision for her and our family, she ultimately thrived in the Center. Sublette County is home to some of the greatest people living in one of the greatest places on Earth; I believe we, as citizens, are obligated to provide a comfortable and caring environment for our family, friends and neighbors who, now and into the future, require residential nursing care. Our people are our greatest asset and as a member of the Sublette Center Board of Directors, it is my goal to ensure a healthy, happy staff in order to continually provide a healthy, happy environment for residents of the Sublette Center.
After moving to Big Piney in 1982, I quickly learned to value the role volunteers play in enriching our lives in Sublette County. As my parents and in-laws age, I learn more about the many challenges senior citizens face. When seniors need extended periods of medical attention, being near their families is important to their healing, comfort, and happiness. I am honored to serve on the Board and to help nurture the future of The Sublette Center in its mission to care for these treasured citizens of our county.
Born and raised in Sublette County, I have a love for Pinedale and our residents. I currently split my time between Pinedale and Salt Lake City, Utah where I attended college, raised a family and completed a couple of careers in both the healthcare and technology industries. I have a history of volunteering & founding organizations to promote better communities. While not working with the Sublette Center, I enjoy my work with Utah Geek Events, a not-for-profit organization with a 10+-year history of providing low-cost, no-cost, high quality events to the tech community. And, as the daughter of Bob and Ellen Dew I did not escape more than a few days working at Dew Lumber Company, starting at age 5 with my red wagon picking up drying sticks for “The Grouch”. This instilled a solid work ethic. Thank You Bob and Ellen!
Our family has benefited from the Sublette Center; I have bitter-sweet memories of the compassionate care provided by the staff when Ellen fought her last battle with cancer Our family is very appreciative of having this facility available for our family and friends! I am looking forward to giving back to a community that gave so much to our family.
