Born and raised in Fort Myers, Shavon Chester is a dedicated servant of her community. When she found her career in long-term care, it allowed her to help people and leverage resources, and after more than a decade with The Rehab & Healthcare Center of Cape Coral, she feels privileged to work with our most vulnerable population.

“I believe that the only way to affect change is to be willing to do your part and do the heavy lifting,” she says. “I am beyond grateful that so many organizations have not only valued my input but, in many instances, have allowed me to be on their board of directors. It makes me so proud to be a native Floridian.”

The best piece of advice came from my mother, who always told me, “People will forget what you say, but not how you make them feel.”
