TEAM Staff

Adam Musielewicz- Coalition Director  adam@teamwandp.org  I grew up in Michigan and moved to Colorado in 2006 as an AmeriCorps volunteer. During my year of service I worked with homeless and runaway youth at Urban Peak Denver. Afterwards, I was hired on by Urban Peak and worked with young people around job readiness and training. Working with and for homeless youth was a formative experience for me, one that I applied to various other work settings; coordinating TANF services for refugee youth and families, providing navigation services for youth and families in public housing, and finally providing technical assistance to grantees receiving prevention funding through the State of Colorado.   My family and I enjoy all things outdoors; hiking, climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, etc. The mountains, rivers, and lakes are always destinations.

Melissa Lovato- Program Assistant  melissa@teamwandp.org  I hold the title of Program Assistant for TEAM Wellness and Prevention, but that title is only part of what I do at TEAM. I was a volunteer for TEAM for approximately 4 years before being accepted as an intern in December 2017 where I committed to providing the outreach of sponsorships for TEAM's Simply Red Gala Fundraiser. I was able to establish excellent relationships with TEAM's sponsors and in April of 2018 was offered a permanent position with TEAM. I continue to build partnerships with the community and my dedication to TEAM has expanded to running the administrative management of TEAM's Licensed Rebound Program which is a treatment program developed in March of 2017. Rebound provides direct services to treat and address substance use disorders and mental health to Northern Colorado's community. My dedication to TEAM has grown into the ability to assist the Youth Program Specialists with their programs when needed. I enjoy the staff and feel that "we gel appropriately" and my favorite color is purple!
