Shelly Swanson has been a Bend resident for over 25 years. Though she was born in Munich, Germany, and raised in Washington State, she’s given a good part of her life to the Bend community. She’s seen the area grow and change, yet her love for Central Oregon has remained strong.
There are many things to love about Bend, but for Shelly, the two top reasons to live in Bend are its wonderful people and its stunning beauty. “I love Central Oregon’s landscape, and the people that encompass this fine community. The area is truly amazing and worth the discovery.”
Like a lot of people from Bend, Shelly has a variety of hobbies that keep her outdoors in all seasons. From skiing and yoga to camping and trail running, she’s never short on things to do in her free time.
