Sherea Cary

Care Partner Network Manager

As a quintessential Southern woman, she pairs grit and grace in all of her efforts. A lifelong Texan born in Beaumont and raised in Houston, she inhaled and inherited the personality and determination of her paternal grandmother, Mrs. Ernestine Cary – a formidable South Texas matriarch, businesswoman, church musician and choir director who served as the caregiver for Sherea’s great-grandmother. Mother Cary’s devotion to family, leadership in business and concern for the community are examples that continue to shape Sherea personally and professionally today.

Sherea found her calling in caregiving nearly two decades ago when she provided leadership to her family as they helped her father survive a prostate cancer diagnosis in 2000.

She compiled her tips for caregivers into a book, Next Step Navigation Tool: A Complete Step-By-Step Guide After the Initial Diagnosis of Cancer. The ultimate caregiver educator, she devotes countless hours every month to helping patients and their families take a more-organized, less-stressed approach to battling chronic illnesses.
