Shelby Werley

Executive Director

Where are you from and when did you relocate to Red River?

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I moved across the country to Red River in November, 2017 for a change of pace. I love the small town feel and my "Red River Family"!

What is your favorite activity to do in Red River?

In the winter I enjoy skiing and snowboarding, as well as snowshoeing and drinking hot chocolate! The rest of the year, I fly fish, hike, ride 4-wheelers, and enjoy anything outdoors with my boyfriend and dog, Sierra!

What is your favorite Chamber of Commerce event?

The Fourth of July Parade & Celebration! I love seeing all of the decorated floats go down Main Street followed by the picnic and celebration in Brandenburg Park! 

Fun Fact?

I have worked with over a dozen former and current Olympic Cyclists! I worked and volunteered at one of the biggest velodromes in the country all of my life.  Many USA Olympians have trained and raced there as well as cyclists from all over the world.  While working with the cyclists, I became close friends with several Olympians and even a few gold medal winners!
