Meet The Board
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 a valuable asset to our community and I am proud to be a part of such a caring organization.
I was born and raised in Sublette County and privileged to extend this legacy to my own family. I attended the University of Wyoming, am married to Craig Jensen, have two children and three grandchildren. My career includes 24 years as Sublette County’s District Court Clerk and I now spend time with our trucking business while enjoying my three grandchildren. I love to contribute and serve as a member on the Board of Directors for MESA Therapeutic Riding, the Boulder Mosquito District, and now the Sublette Center.
As my volunteer work now extends to our seniors, I treasure the opportunity to share these stories with the Sublette Center residents. I am so honored with the opportunity to participate with the Sublette Center board and feel it is a great opportunity to give back a little of what my family has received from this precious resource over the years.
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.
It is with great honor that I am able to say I am part of the Sublette Center board. I serve with a compassionate, experienced, and diverse group of individuals. When the opportunity arose to join the board in 2018, I eagerly did so in hopes that I could assist our senior population. I had recently spent the last 15 years getting the opportunity to be educated by our youth in elementary and special education, so I was looking forward to a new learning experience. In 2007, I had some experience with my husband's grandmother in the Sublette Center and was inspired by all those who encompassed the center. I value the resource the Sublette Center provides to our community and surrounding area and the people who work and reside at the center.
I moved to Pinedale, WY in 2001 relocating from a very small farming and ranching community in central Montana. Soon after arriving to Wyoming, I fell in love with the area and a local rancher and business owner. We have a three-year old son that teaches me a great deal in life and
I hope to never stop learning!
