What is CAP?
CAP of Greater Pearland is a project of the 2010 Leadership Pearland, Texas Class. This mission will meet the needs of the Pearland community while promoting leadership and business networking opportunities. The group’s focus is to raise awareness of the struggles that some residents face on a daily basis. Additionally, CAP provides funds and resources to help these individuals get back on their feet or deal with the crisis they are facing.
How does someone request assistance?
Those in need of assistance are often referred by case managers, hospital social workers, nurses and field staff. Once a request has been submitted to a CAP board member, the board is polled and a decision is made based on the organization’s bi-laws and guidelines. Grants are evaluated on a case by case basis.
Where does CAP get funding?
CAP of Greater Pearland receives funding through membership dues, donations and by hosting an annual fundraising event. As the organization grows in both membership and fundraising, CAP will be able to increase both the amount and frequency of grants offered.
Community Assistance Providers of Greater Pearland (CAP) is an organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for indigent and less fortunate individuals of the Greater Pearland Area by providing assistance through our Community Assistance Providers Fund. Assistance can vary from providing prescription medication or utility bills to wheelchairs and hospital beds.

Realtor with Realty Associates

Cap of Pearland Co-Treasurer
Director of Business Development, Mainland Medical Center
I have 19 plus years experience as a hands on RN and 22 plus in my field. STACH was my passion in SDS, and Endoscopy was my goal accomplished. I was also co-chair of the first and founding Nurse Staffing Committee at HCA, Mainland Medical Center, with the guidance of a fantastic CNO through the BNE.
To increase my growth as a RN and team player, a change was needed. This change is a very different, fun, yet challenging one. It’s been 4 plus years now as a Clinical Liaison, and now Director of Business Development.
Growth comes with change and challenges for my self. The last 5 years have been by far a different level of nursing. Marketing has become a passion. Meeting and developing new relationships where no one thought was possible has been challenging, yet rewarding. VERY. I have found my new niche.
I believe in and taught the transition of care and the continuum of care. I did a pilot with my supporters at the STACH assigned at the LTACH level. I am now working towards the appropriate level at the Skilled Level. My high emphasis is on the transitioning, if appropriate, to Long-Term Care. This will be the solid ground for those with Dementia and early-mid Alzheimer’s disease.
The beginning of my career was solidified with preventative medicine practice with high level staff and physicians. Now I, as I also grow, believe in and am blessed with opportunity and passion to advocate for all and with 100% empathy that I WILL continue to educate, not “sell”, levels appropriate for all.
I believe my background is solid. I accept and will strive to continue to challenge myself to be and stay very confident and passionate to my profession, my family, my beliefs, and of course my patients and families. Community Service is also a passion.
