Christian Coker

Note: Each month, we will feature a different member of the WebPT family in our Staff Spotlight blog series.

For as long as he can remember, Christian Coker has been a talker.

“I’ve always been the most outspoken person in my family,” he said. “To this day, whenever anyone needs to buy a car or something, it’s like, ‘Christian has to come along to negotiate, because Christian is the talker.’”

As a Member Liaison at WebPT, Christian employs his natural knack for communication on a near daily basis as he interacts with Members and helps clinics transition to working within the application. As part of WebPT’s implementation team, Christian also has the special privilege of providing on-site training at large, multi-clinic practices all around the country. “When a large practice signs up—like five-plus clinics—it’s sort of an intricate process to get them going,” he said. “So I fly out to train them, assist them, and just make sure that everything goes smoothly.”

Born and raised in Phoenix, Christian has racked up a lot of frequent flier miles over the last few months. In 2013 alone, he’s traveled to Utah, California, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Illinois, and Indiana. “I’m usually out of the office a minimum of one week per month,” he said.

The task of training dozens of people in such a short time frame is difficult to say the least, but Christian isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. A former high school football captain and competitive boxer, he draws on his athletic background to stay cool under pressure. “Just like in sports, it’s all about confidence,” he said. “I never really get uncomfortable. I go into it knowing that people are looking to me for the answers, so I have to be able to deliver the answers. I have to be prepared.”

All of the preparation pays off the moment a new Member experiences the elusive “Aha” moment—that priceless second when everything finally clicks and makes perfect sense. “In Member Care, we strive everyday to deliver the ‘Aha’ moment,” Christian said. “But when you actually get to be there and see it in person, it’s so much better. It makes everything feel very worthwhile.”

Although he feels lucky to have the opportunity to visit so many different parts of the country, Christian’s favorite part of each trip is pulling into his driveway and seeing his daughter Isabella—Izzy for short—waiting at the door for him. “She’s a load of fun,” he said of Isabella, who will be two years old in October. “She’s such a brute. I call her my little thug—she’s definitely got some sass and some attitude.”

When he’s not catching up on emails or homework—he’s currently a double major in communications and theology at Grand Canyon University—Christian enjoys spending time with friends and family, especially Izzy and his fiancé, Liliana, whom he has known since grade school.

He also is very active in the Catholic church, which instilled in him a deep appreciation for and dedication to charitable activities. In fact, his passion for helping others led him to take on the role of heading up the Community Culture Team at WebPT. “I just think it’s important to take the blessings we’ve accumulated here at WebPT and share them with the community,” he said.

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Robbie Walsh

    If variety is the spice of life, then Robbie Walsh has led an exceedingly flavorful existence—especially when it comes to his athletic résumé. After all, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone with experience in football, wrestling, rodeo, hockey, and cross-country—even someone who, at one point, had his sights set on becoming a gym teacher. As a kid growing up in Alaska, playing hockey was pretty much a requirement for Robbie. But when he and his family moved …

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Tim Moore

    He talks with a thick Louisiana accent, loves the smooth sound of New Orleans jazz, and makes a mean shrimp creole. But while Tim Moore is Cajun through and through, his infectious laugh and genuine smile make him anything but ragin’—well, unless the Saints or the Tigers are losing. A self-described family man, Tim—a native of the Bayou State—grew up playing the trumpet (he even played in the LSU band), attending the annual New Orleans Jazz Fest, and …

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Brian Kunich

    Waiter, bartender, veterinary attendant, video store clerk, Hard Rock Hotel bellhop and valet driver, landscaper, dry cleaner, soccer coach, and yes, human tissue harvester. What do all of these occupations have in common? (Hint: They’re not items on a Buzzfeed list of obscure Halloween costumes.) No, the answer to this riddle is a little closer to home—at least for the WebPT family: They all appear on Brian Kunich’s résumé. Of course, Brian’s days of steam-pressing suits and …

She’s sweet, soft-spoken, and has a smile that could light up an entire dance hall—but never in a million years would you guess that Courtney Lefferts was once a Vegas showgirl.

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Kevin Tye

    He’s a level 27 Pokémon Goer, a former child movie actor, and an old-school hip-hop karaoke star—but if you ask Kevin Tye to describe himself, he’ll just smile sheepishly and say, “Aww, I’m really not that interesting." Of course, when new friends inevitably discover that Kevin has his own IMDb page —which prominently lists his sole claim to silver-screen fame, the role of “nerdy kid” in the 1998 family feature film, “No More Baths”—they almost always ask …

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Michael Burns

    There are only 12 unique tones in music, but a skilled composer can rearrange those sonic building blocks to form an infinite number of melodies. No one understands the far-reaching application of that concept better than Michael Burns—not only because he’s formally educated in musical composition, but also because he’s rearranged the building blocks of that education to form the foundation of a whole new career path. A born-and-raised Arizonan, Michael grew up playing any musical instrument …

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Paula Beavin

    Oscar Wilde famously argued that life imitates art far more than art imitates life. Well, no offense to Mr. Wilde, but Paula Beavin would take imitation out of the equation completely. Because the way she sees it, life is, in fact, art: “Art is something that’s included in every person’s life every single day—you just don’t realize it,” she said. From culinary arts (making coffee and breakfast) and design (picking out your outfit for the day) to …
