Shelly’s days may be long (usually in excess of 16 hours), but she thrives on the rewards that being a great mom, wife and ag producer bring. Most recently she has been on the forefront of trying to resolve the Northwest port crisis. Helping her family run their business, Boshart Trucking, she learned first-hand the havoc the slowdown and closures have had on the ag industry and other businesses. She’s been a strong and vocal advocate, testifying at the state level and helping find a solution that will bring the ports back to their full strength.
Shelly is involved in her local community in so many ways. She participates in the Adopt-a-farmer program, she consults with Oregon State University, and she speaks publicly at events to share her passions. She is also involved in coaching volleyball at different levels both at her daughter’s school and for a competitive local volleyball club.
