Taylor Glasheen

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

When she went on a trip to Mexico with just six bucks in her pocket, Taylor Glasheen learned the hard way that the exchange rate wasn’t quite as generous as she’d expected. “I thought that would, like, buy me a house—and it didn’t,” she said with a slight smile and a touch of sarcasm.

Luckily, her friends and her dad were willing to spot her some cash, but even a lesson like that wasn’t enough to quell her adventuresome spirit. “I’m kind of known for just jumping into situations,” she said. “I have a lot of stories.”

Her arsenal of personal experience comes in handy when she’s assisting WebPT Members who have found themselves in sticky situations. After all, she knows exactly what it’s like to need a little bit of help. She also knows there’s almost always a solution—sometimes you just have to dig to find it.

Taylor first interviewed at WebPT about a year and a half ago on the recommendation of family friend and WebPT Billing Service Sales Rep Sarah Brcka. “From the time I walked into the interview and saw [CTO Brad Jannenga’s dog] Topper and the whole office atmosphere, I knew I wanted a job here because I loved the environment. It was just a bonus that the job involved using computers and interacting with people.”

Taylor joined the WebPT team as a support rep. “I loved it [support],” she said. “We always used to say we were the ‘therapists to the therapists.’ Each problem was like a puzzle almost, and when I figured it out—when I got that answer for them—it was a good feeling on both sides.”

Six months later, Taylor moved into the success department, where she primarily assists new Members transitioning their practices to the WebPT system. She draws on her support background to help answer their questions, but she also tends to ask a lot of questions herself. “I’ve really honed in on figuring out what therapists do every single day, and that has made me appreciate their job a lot more,” she said.

When she’s not “nerding out” on her computer or helping to create raving WebPT fans, it’s a pretty safe bet that Taylor is doing something with music—writing it, practicing it, performing it, or recording it. Growing up, Taylor and her family incorporated music into almost every family gathering. Over the years, she’s picked up the guitar, the piano, the drums, and the ukulele.

In addition to jamming with her parents, her older sister, and her three younger brothers, Taylor took up theatre as a teenager and still participates in a backstage capacity at various local shows. “Theatre was just an elective I fell into when I was in high school, but I had a good teacher who lit a fire under me and made me really appreciate the arts.”

Although she enjoys writing original music, Taylor is best known for the amazing covers she records and posts on YouTube. Her most popular song to date? That would be her solo acoustic rendition of Beyoncé’s “Halo.”

Through her online fame, Taylor has met a lot of interesting folks. “Lots of people tell me I’ve inspired them to pick up an instrument, which is pretty cool,” she said. “One guy messaged me and asked if I could play at a funeral. That’s actually how I learned to play the ukulele—he gave it to me as a thank you.” She’s currently in the process of recording her first album—a mixture of Americana and folk-inspired tunes—which she hopes to finish by the end of the year.

Although she hasn’t quite pinpointed a specific career goal, Taylor knows she performs best when she is constantly challenged and, of course, working with computers. In the meantime, she’s staying focused on her goal of growing within the company and learning as much as possible all the time. “WebPT has definitely showed me how a company should be run,” she said. “I love that even though I have a ‘big-girl’ job, every day is still fun.”

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Emily Ely

    We’ve all seen those cheesy Instagram posts with inspirational messages—like “Seize the day” or “Follow your heart” or “Live with passion”—scrawled across picturesque photos of sandy beaches, golden sunrises, and snow-capped mountain peaks. Maybe we’ve even tapped that little heart icon to publicly declare our support of such statements. But rarely do we live by them—at least not consistently. Emily Ely, on the other hand, has always used her heart as her compass—and it hasn’t failed her …

    Whether he’s making a sale, remodeling a house, or hiking the mountains of Phoenix with his three Shiba inus, Bryan O’Conor lives for the thrill of a challenge. And that’s a good thing, because as he has discovered, no two physical therapy clinics are the same—which means that when it comes to helping practice owners identify the solutions that meet their business needs, Bryan must constantly flex his creative muscle. “It’s my job to listen to the …

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Tina Kaminski-Market

    She’s a former middle-school spelling bee champ, a decorated high school swimmer, and a blue-ribbon show dog handler. But of all of Tina Kaminski-Market’s outstanding achievements, perhaps the one that stands out the most is her personal repertoire of 17 broken bones. “I’m just really accident-prone,” she said. “My peripheral vision is so bad. I’ll walk into doors that have been there for years and yell at them.” Still, Tina’s clutzy tendencies haven’t kept her from chasing …

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Andy Rysdam

    Website trailblazer. Internet prodigy. Digital marketing hipster. No, that’s not Andy Rysdam’s Twitter bio—but it probably should be. Because back when most of us considered Encarta ’95 to be the epitome of cutting-edge computer technology, little Andy was busy building a website for his grandmother’s real estate business. “I gave it to her as a Christmas present,” Andy said. “I’m not sure she even used it. She was in rural Iowa, so I don’t think the Internet …

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Joe Dundas

    Most folks in the rehab therapy tech world—and around the WebPT office—know Joe Dundas as the president and co-founder of Therabill. What most people don’t know about Joe: He created a social media platform before the term “social media” was even a thing. “I wrote a webpage for my wife’s friends to log on and post pictures and notes for each other,” he said. “At the time, there was no such thing as a social network.” Joe’s …

Growing up on his grandfather’s farm in eastern Tennessee, Mike Clevenger learned the value of a hard day’s work at a very young age. “We had days where the entire family—60 or 70 people with all of the grandkids—would come together, and we had to vaccinate all of my grandfather’s cattle,” he said. “That’s about 300 head …

    If laughter truly is the best medicine, Jovana Samardzich will never have to visit a pharmacy again—because she’s never short on smiles and giggles, regardless of the situation. That even goes for robberies in progress: “I worked at a Hallmark (store) for a bit, and one time we got robbed at 11 o’clock in the morning,” she said. “The guy walked in, and I just started chatting with him like I would any other customer.” Jovana’s manager …

    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 …
