We had the good fortune of connecting with Crystal Capler and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Crystal, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
I was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi. In the wake of my mother’s untimely death from stage 4 breast cancer, I was raised in a single father household. At the time of her death, I was only 10 years old. I recall my father picking up my little brother and I from school and taking us to see our mother at the hospital for the last time before she passed away. I grew up in a neighborhood called Virden Addition which is a poverty-stricken neighborhood, but honestly, my father made it feel like the suburbs. He instilled in me hard work, dedication, and commitment. Seeing my father going to work every day as a construction worker showed me dedication and commitment. Throughout my childhood, he exemplified mental and physical toughness, which helped me to become the person I am today.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I’m a nurse practitioner who owns Pivot Healthcare Company in Desoto Texas. Pivot Healthcare Company is a primary care practice. The mission of Pivot Healthcare Company is to provide primary care services and educate its community on preventative and chronic diseases to a culturally diverse population of both the youth and elderly through delivering high quality, competent, evidence-based primary care. With these goals in mind, Pivot Healthcare Company continues to strive to meet the needs of its community. I’m most proud of the positive feedback I get from my colleagues and patients daily. My patients reassure me that I’m walking in God’s purpose for my life which is to serve people through healthcare.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Since moving to Dallas, Texas I’m constantly exploring new and exciting things here. I enjoy the hiking trails. My favorite is Cedar Ridge Preserve. The views are amazing once you make it to the top. You can see as far as Cedar Hill- Joe Pool Lake, Grand Prairie, parts of Dallas, and even the Cowboys stadium! I love the weather in Dallas in the spring. I get to enjoy many of the rooftop restaurants RH rooftop in the springtime for me is a perfect spot for brunch with my friends and to enjoy shopping. You can never go wrong with a nice outing after work at Local Tap and Table. The food, music, and drinks keep me coming back for more! To end the night and really get a amazing bird’s eye of Dallas reunion tower at night a must is Canva Hotel and Rooftop. The views are amazing the DJ’s plays great music.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
It has been so many people, books, and life circumstances that have contributed to the success of my career, but one who I would like to dedicate this series of shoutouts to is my little brother, Lil Lonnie. Throughout our childhood we dreamed of being successful. He was the one who encouraged me to take risks and follow my dreams. We never knew how we were going to do it but seeing him betting on himself throughout his rap career gives me the motivation and the “never give up” feeling to keep going no matter what obstacles or challenges that I may face throughout my professional career.
