Meet Shannon Webster, 2017 Ms. Wheelchair Illinois. Shannon is an inspiration to us for her determination to help others and her steadfast pursuit of her dreams! Diagnosed with cerebral palsy with spastic dysplasia when she was 2 years old, Shannon never put limits on what she could accomplish in life. She works as a Recruiting Programs Specialist at Exelon in Chicago where she is able to empower others and foster a spirit of inclusion for all people with disabilities in the workplace.

We are excited to share her words of wisdom with all Clever Belles.
