I first met Dr. Pearson a few years ago while working in the fitness industry. I specialized in post cardiac and orthopedic rehabilitation, so I got to know her specific case very well. As our relationship developed, I learned about the layers to her disability story. This was about so much more than just a torn labrum and a frozen shoulder. This was about a tragic and abrupt end to a career as a physician. She was going through an identity crisis and was forced to start over. All of the years of hard work seemed as though it had gone to waste.
Little did I know at the time that she was turning her difficult situation into an opportunity to build something special.
In March of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic hit my hometown, hard. In a matter of weeks, I went from working a full schedule, to furloughed with no end in sight. I found myself going through my own devastating career identity crisis. How could I pivot? What were my options? How could I continue to provide for my clients and my family through this crisis? After months of turmoil and mourning, I was finally forced to admit that my career in the fitness industry was over.
When I came to grips with my new normal, I began looking for a new path that still allowed me to help others in a similar way. I reconnected with Dr. Pearson, and she outlined to me the PearsonRavitz mission. I knew right away that she, Scott, and their incredible team were building something special, and I wanted to be a part of it.
Now I am blessed to be a part of the PearsonRavitz family. Our tight-knit team continues to change the stigma of the insurance industry by prioritizing education and putting the needs of the client first. I am so fortunate to have found a way to impact the lives of others outside of a fitness and rehab center. I can say without a doubt that PearsonRavitz has become my home, and I look forward to educating and advocating for our clients each and every day.Schedule a consultation with Donald
