Our Board of Directors
Wendy wishes she had been born in Montana but is grateful she discovered this beautiful place with time to enjoy it and help make a difference to preserve it for generations to come. She most recently co-led the effort to prevent an asphalt plant and gravel pit from being built and operated south of Emigrant, along the gateway to Yellowstone Park. Wendy brings to PCEC 25+ years of experience in human resource management and organizational development and has a M.A. in Organizational Leadership. She has been with a variety of companies and industries, both for- and not-for-profit, and currently works for Microsoft Corporation where she manages global change initiatives and helps improve leadership team effectiveness. Wendy and her husband have resided in Paradise Valley full-time since 2014, after purchasing their property in 2001, and enjoy traveling, camping, fly-fishing, skiing, and hiking.
Joe Dorn comes to the Board with over 40 years of experience as a lawyer in Washington, DC. From 1994 until his retirement in early 2016, Joe was a partner with King & Spalding, where he specialized in international trade disputes and other complex litigation.
Joe has been coming to Park County since the 1980s to fish and hike and escape the stress of working in the nation’s capital. He acquired land in Paradise Valley in 2008 and built a house in 2010 that faces Emigrant Peak. In retirement, Joe spends much of the year fishing, hiking, skiing, and enjoying the people and wildlife of Park County. He greatly appreciates and wants to conserve all of the natural beauty that this special place has to offer.
Joe serves on the Boards of the University of North Carolina Arts and Sciences Foundation and the Georgia Tennis Foundation, and he supports several environmental organizations in Montana and elsewhere.
