Peter began his career with Optum On-Site as an On-Call Exercise Specialist at an entertainment company in Los Angeles. He proved to be a successful Exercise Specialist and Personal Trainer on his first day of coverage when he helped a member with some kettlebell exercises and she then purchased a training package. A full-time position opened up several months later and Peter was able to join the team as a full-time Exercise Specialist and Director of Personal Training.
Because of the growth of the client’s personal training department, the Director of Physical Activity encouraged Peter to apply for the Assistant Manager/Director of Personal Training position at a biopharma company in Southern California. He joined this large team in the fall of 2012 and has since grown the personal training department by 40%. In the spring of 2016, Peter took on the additional responsibilities of Associate Director of Physical Activity where he works closely with the Director of Physical Activity and assists other sites in growing their personal training departments as well.
Peter loves working for Optum On-Site because he is able to use his creativity to solve unique challenges. Every day is different and exciting; he truly feels he makes a difference, not only for clients, but his team members as well. Peter enjoys being innovative and thinking outside the box, and feels that his contributions are appreciated by the organization.
