Staff Highlight: P.T. Schlosser
Staff Highlight – P.T. Schlosser
P.T. Schlosser joined the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center this past summer in the role of building operations coordinator. Although he is fairly new at the center, he’s already made a huge impact on the center’s operations, employees and visitors. We caught up with P.T. to ask a few questions about himself and all he does for the center:
Q. Tell me a little about yourself and how you found your way to the Wellness Center.
A. I was born and raised in southeastern Pennsylvania. I completed my undergrad at West Chester University and got my master’s degree at a small school near Pittsburgh. I finished graduate school in 2022 and found this opportunity in Colorado that I couldn’t pass up. So I moved to Colorado in July and that’s when I started my job here.
Q. Describe your role at the Wellness Center?
A. As the building operations coordinator, my job duties are really all inclusive. On a day–to–day basis, I can be doing anything from submitting work order requests, distributing mail, fulfilling key requests, installing computers, IT troubleshooting and so much more.
Q. What do you like the most about your job?
A. I’m lucky that I get to work with every single department and all of the tenants on a daily basis. It’s a lot of fun for me because I get to see a lot of new faces and meet a lot of new people. I like people so it’s fun for me to interact with people every day. I also like being able to constantly be moving. Most people are at their desks four to five hours a day. Some days I’m at my desk for a couple hours a day, then I’m solving issues as they happen and I get to interact with people, that’s something I really enjoy.
Q. What would you say makes the Wellness Center special?
A. The center is unique; like something I’ve never experienced before. It’s a place that brings so many different aspects and groups together. Not only do we house the Wellness Center, we have research, we have the CU Medicine Weight Management and Wellness Clinic, and we have the fitness center; but we also house tenants like the Marcus Institute for Brain Health (MIBH) and the Colorado Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) that also work together with the people of our center. Things like that, where people of many disciplines can come together for one unified purpose. I feel like we would not have that without the Wellness Center.
Q. Is there anything you’re working on right now that you’re excited about?
A. I’m currently preparing the facility improvement budget for fiscal year ‘24, where we’re looking to replace and update a lot of the furniture in the building. We can offer the best researchers and the best clinicians to people, but it’s also important that we can also offer the best facility, and that’s what I bring to the table. I’m really excited to see our plans implemented soon!
Q. Enough about work! What do you do for fun when you’re not working?
Well, I’ve only been in Colorado for about six or seven months now, so I’m still exploring and still getting introduced to the mountains, so it’s all still a lot to me; but so far, I enjoy hiking, sightseeing and visiting new places. I’m also a huge Philadelphia sports fan! Philadelphia has had a great year in sports, so it’s been fun being able to watch the games, especially being one of the only fans over this way.
We are so impressed with everything that P.T. has done to keep our building operating smoothly every day. Thank you for your time and dedication, P.T.!
