SUBLETTE CENTER BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Our Volunteer Board of Directors provide a wide variety of professional and community experience and are very proud of the Sublette Center’s professional and caring staff.
As a not-for-profit organization, our services depend upon the continued dedication of our staff and community. We feel very fortunate and are humbled to be a small part of this valuable organization.
Meet The Board
I spent a year in Sublette County in 1984 and returned in 1990. I feel truly blessed to be able to live here with my family. We love the small town atmosphere, the beautiful mountains, and the amenities Sublette County provides.
As a local business owner and an active county resident, I have a personal wish to see the Sublette Center continue to serve our growing senior population. My mother currently calls the Sublette Center home and this gives me a personal stake in its well-being.
I have served as a Sublette Center board member for over 3 years and look forward to additional contributions as the Chair.
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.
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.
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.
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 look forward to giving back to a community that gave so much to our family.
Born and raised in Sublette County, I spent my formidable years living and working on our family ran Cattle and Guest Ranches, starting with Fall Creek Ranch just west of Pinedale and later Fremont Butte Ranch located outside of Boulder. This hard work and experience gave me a great appreciation for the people, community and the land we call home. I attended the University of Wyoming and upon graduating moved to Southern California where I pursued a career in Technology and raised my son Dylan. We would visit 2-3 times a year to enjoy time with family and the various activities Pinedale has to offer. In 2015, I had the opportunity to bring my job back with me to Pinedale. This allowed me to help care for my parents, Hank and Melita Snow, long time residents of the area. I joined the Sublette Center board in 2018, and look forward to giving back to a community and residents who were so influential in my upbringing and who continue to provide that neighborly sense of being to so many.
