LSVT Global Team Member Spotlight! Pete Vasquez

Pete Vasquez: Administrative Assistant, Logistics & Shipping

What do you do?

My primary responsibilities are shipping & receiving (for all orders including Virtual and Online courses), updating clinician accounts once individuals have completed their online courses, and mailing out certificates to the newly certified LSVT BIG & LSVT LOUD clinicians. I also send course completion reports to various states as needed for CEU credit, manage inventory for all our products, and any other tasks where assistance is needed.

How long have you been with LSVT Global?

I have been here 5 ½ years.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I love all aspects of my job and knowing that I am contributing a small part to helping people with Parkinson’s disease. I also feel like there is always something different that comes along almost daily and I enjoy learning something new.

Tell us a little about yourself:

I was born and raised in Tucson and lived here most of my life. I enlisted in the Army about a year after graduation and was in the Army for six years and spent one year in the Army Reserves. I was part of Desert Storm and stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska (Ft. Wainwright) for three years and transferred to Fort Huachuca, AZ for my last two years before leaving the service. I have been married to my wife Martha for 17 years, but we do not have children together. She has two boys from her previous and I have a boy and girl from my previous marriage. We have two grandchildren (Scarlett & Zeke) from my daughter Melina, so we will see who will be the next one. We are waiting for construction on our new house to be finished and we are hoping to move in by the end of October, fingers crossed.

Favorite quote, food, or pastime:

I played football all four years at Tucson High School, where I graduated, and I enjoy watching football and playing golf when I can (and watching it as well). My favorite food is almost all seafood – prepared in anyway. My favorite quote is from one of my favorite movies, Renaissance Man (w/ Danny Devito / Mark Wahlberg / Gregory Hines / Stacy Dash) given by Danny Devito – “The choices you make dictate the life you lead.”

“Pete is such a joy to have on our team. He works quietly and diligently in the background, ensuring all our logistics and other operations run smoothly. Pete goes above and beyond the call of duty. For example, when we have customs emergencies – he checks in all hours of the day and night to ensure our packages can be delivered on time for courses. Pete lends a hand to anyone that needs it and has an amazing array of skills that come in handy for us at LSVT Global. Most importantly, he makes the BEST coffee that keeps us all going! Thank you, Pete for your service to our country and your commitment to LSVT Global.”
