Shawn Stewart

Program Coordinator - Day Habilitation

Hello, my name is Shawn Stewart and I am the Coordinator for our Day Habilitation Program, called The WAVE, here at WESCO Industries.  I have been with WESCO since May 2019.  I started out as an SCL staff helping clients that live on their own in the community.  I have been working in this field for the past 20 years serving in roles from being a client’s one-on-one staff, overseeing a 15 bed RCF home, running Day Hab, to overseeing the daily operations of our entire residential services.  My philosophy when it comes to working at WESCO and in this field in general is: Our people make me smile, laugh and just make my day better – I want to do the same for them in return.

My personal life is fairly nonexistent.  Besides being a hall of fame UNO and Skip Bo player, I am a: Netflix, Hulu and HBO aficionado.  The thing I love most of all is hanging out with the coolest person in the world- my daughter, Ashlyn.  Our favorite pastime is playing hours of any Super Mario game and watching way, way too much Nickelodeon.

Seeing so many individuals succeed in life and being able to transition back into the community is the best part of my job. - WESCO Industries Employee
They can't tell you when you start this job there may come a time where you find you're more comfortable surrounded by people with developmental disabilities than when you are with the general population. But it happens. - WESCO Industries Employee
Until someone has had their own experience with someone with a developmental disability, they just won't understand. - WESCO Industries Employee
I’m so grateful this job became my purpose, my passion & part of my identity. WESCO Industries Employee
