Taylor Neff: Center Manager

My name is Taylor and I have a huge passion for helping others. I have personally struggled with my weight my entire life and it was only when I came across Profile that I truly learned how to be in control of that number on the scale. I've been on my own journey of losing 30 pounds and for the first time in my life I know how to maintain it. My coaching style is diving deep into your "why". I like getting to know what motivates you and holding you accountable to that. All while providing that added support to keep the motivation going. I'm a strong believer in small goals that lead to large success. My favorite Profile foods are the Caramel pecan bars (it's like dessert) and mint chip shakes. I drink 2 every day to get my day started.
Venessa Kaplan: Health Coach

My name is Vanessa and becoming a health coach has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have done! My passion for helping people started at a very young age for me, so being able to work with people regarding their health & lifestyle has been exhilarating. The best investment you can make is in yourself, and I absolutely love helping people find their groove in making better habits, behaviors, and routines for themselves in their own every day. Going thru my own health journey by myself, I thrive to support people going thru their individual journey, diving into their "why", all the while motivating & inspiring each to find their own unique rhythm in healthy living.

My favorite Profile foods have been the Caramel Cocoa bar & the Oatmeal raisin bar! Also, those Banana Cream Pie & Chocolate Fudge Brownie shakes are one of my favorite pudding!!
Jessa Dukelow: Health Coach

My name is Coach Jessa, and I enjoy Orangetheory workouts, helping others, and talking about fiber! I live in Palatine, but am originally from Southeastern Wisconsin, so you know I have some tricks about how to limit my cheese intake. My passion for health and nutrition began about 10 years ago when I hit my highest weight ever at 240lbs. Since then, I have lost over 60lbs, and lost the final 30lbs with a combination or Orangetheory Fitness and Profile by Sanford. In that time, I have fallen in love with both the Salted Caramel and Maple Pecan shakes.

My goal as a health coach is to be an ally to our members, to help them navigate the (often confusing) world of nutrition and food marketing. I promise some humor in our coaching appointments, and lots and lots of care to navigate your journey.
Samantha Eppel: Health Coach

My name is Coach Sam! My passion for health and wellness started at a young age when I was diagnosed with pediatric cancer. This influenced my drive to continuously learn how to best prevent diseases through proper diet and exercise! My favorite activities that keep me moving include hikes with my dog Fenway, snowboarding, beach volleyball, weightlifting, and yoga.

If there was one Profile item that I could choose to have for the rest of my life it would hands down be the Mocha Latte shake, putting it in my coffee every morning is a highlight of my day!

A Word From Our Local Owners:

There is nothing more personal than nutrition, staying healthy and weight-loss. At some point, every individual has struggled with their self-image and many of us have our own weight-loss goals or we know someone very close to us that does. Our goal at Profile by Sanford is to address those struggles and help you discover a healthy way to lose weight and keep it off.  This past year has been tough on everyone. Less social connections, more stress, and increased health risks.

As your local Profile owners – we are here to help you figure out life so that you can understand how to approach food, fit into those jeans, and hit your goals! Our amazing team of Profile certified coaches are here to help you reach your goals!  Our team will help you stay active, lose weight, and keep it off! We are in this together, you can do this!!

Here is What Chicagoland is Saying About Profile!

Based on 61 reviews
I don't typically write reviews - but Profile is amazing and I losing weight. The food tastes great, my coach is always helpful and so are the other people who work there. Everyone is nice, helpful and they are always attentive to whatever it is I need.I ask tons of questions but they never seem... to get annoyed. I wish there were more food options, but the food does taste amazing and its super easy to fit into my busy schedule. love this place!read more
Chris S.
I've gotten incredible results from the Profile plan, but the best part isn't weight loss. It's the confidence I've gained, the comfort level I feel about my body, and the enjoyment I have while eating real food. If you follow this plan, you WILL lose weight, but you will gain far more at the same... time!read more
Josh D.
Profile has been the catalyst for so much growth and change in my life. Their program is a safe, educational, and sustainable way to change your body and your mindset. Their one on one coaching method gives you the knowledge you need to feel empowered in your choices about food. The coaches are so... encouraging and empowering- shout out to Jessa who is the BEST coach ever and has become a friend as well. I would highly recommend profile to anyone looking to make a life change- it starts with losing weight but has also inspired so much other positive change in my more
Angie C.
After struggling with losing weight for years and trying many different programs that, although they worked, never took. My weight has been up and down, each time I ended up heavier than I was before I’d started a program because I never really felt like I made a mental change. After having twins I... climbed to my highest weight ever and didn’t know what to do because I could barely move due to a bad back. Then I heard about Profile from a friend and saw their results. I looked into the program and it felt easy enough but also like I’d get the mental change/education I needed. Now, less than 8 weeks in I’m down 20lbs and on my way to a goal weight that never felt achievable to me before and a life after where I’ll know how to eat and live a healthy more
Shannon M.
Profile is the WHOLE PACKAGE! I love having a coach to help hold me accountable and encourages me each week. The food options are great, tastes amazing and I now have a new love for veggies! I highly recommend to anyone, no matter your weight...its much more about getting healthy and making good... decisions!read more
Amy S.
My experience with Judy has been nothing but pleasure! She is very polite, and understanding. Her way of explaining and encouraging to create a positive eating habits helped me to loose not only weight, but also helped gain confidence in myself that I CAN DO IT! Thanks Judy for all your help,... support and more

My experience at Profile has been wonderful. My coach, Judy, has been a great source of support for me. Due to her practical tips, encouragement and willingness to share her own weight loss successes and struggles, I feel less alone and more prepared to take on the daily challenges that come... with weight loss and more

I have been on the Profile by Sanford plan for less than a month, and am amazed by the results. The coaches here are very accessible for assistance, and guide you through understanding how we lose weight, while reminding clients WHY we want to lose the weight, if the going gets tough. This isn’t... about a quick fix, but rather a lifestyle change that will help you lose weight and keep it off. It has opened my eyes to the power of nutritious foods, while making the process even easier with their packaged foods for assistance. If you’re committed to changing your LIFE (with a neat side effect of losing weight), call the coaches here more
Jessa D.
I have had great success so far with Profile. I have lost 15 pounds in 2 months. The plan is easy to follow and the one on one health coaching helps me stay accountable for my new lifestyle. Coach Laura has really helped me with my success. I look forward to seeing what my future with Profile has... in store!read more
Molly M.
Profile by Sanford is incredible. I decided to try out their coaching while participating in a challenge at Orange Theory Fitness, little did I know how much it would truly help me. I am well past the OTF challenge and continuing on my Profile journey. The programs are super easy to follow, help... you feel your best, and achieve your goals! The coaches are the best part! My coach Judy Brenner has been that encouraging voice weekly, helping me when at times where I feel I might be falling off track. I highly recommend Profile by Sanford if you want to look and feel your best, on the inside AND outside!read more
Liesl S.
I am extremely happy with my coach, Judy, and the Profile by Sanford program. This is literally the first diet program I have ever been on and didn't know what to expect. Judy has helped me, given me excellent suggestions, encouraged me and been very understanding. I look forward to working with... her throughout my weight loss journey and then using her experience when I get to the maintenance phase, which I almost am. The facility is inviting, clean and I like the way the products are arranged. Thank you again Judy and Profile!read more

I have been with Profile by Sanford (Roscoe Village) since July 2019. I was well over 200 lbs and miserable. I have lost over 30 lbs. The program works!!! It’s easy, food is delicious, and wonderful staff. The true secret to my success is my coach Judy. Judy has been with me every step of my weight... loss. She is so informative and supportive. My sessions are uplifting, fun, and extremely motivating. Having a coach is really the best!! She helps keep me on track and I now understand what I did wrong in the past. Judy armed with my weight, measurements, etc. sets up a plan designed just for me. We discuss ways to improve my plan or whether a move to another step is necessary as I progress. I actually look forward to my sessions with Coach Judy. Also, the Profile staff (Roscoe Village)are Wonderful! Very friendly and always available for questions and products even during the pandemic. This program is designed to grow with you. It has become a whole new healthier way of life for me!! Thank you a Judy!! Thank you Profile!read more
I first learned about Profile by Sanford via a nutrition seminar at my local Orange Theory studio back in January of this year. I had been wanting to make a change in my eating habits but just couldn’t seem to get into a rhythm or know how to start by myself. So I met with Nellie for my nutrition... consultation at the Roscoe Village location. I liked the concept of the program that Nellie described and what my program would look like. I’m not gonna lie though, I had my doubts about sticking with the program and that it would work but being the competitive, driven person that I am I wanted to challenge myself, and the program to see if it actually works. I ended up starting the program in February with the intent of losing 15-20 pounds but more importantly to learn to get in the habit of eating healthy. As of today I have lost almost 13 pounds and I have gotten into a good habit of making good food choices and owning my choices! I can honestly say that I would not be this healthy without Nellie’s nutrition expertise, guidance and our weekly virtual coaching sessions. I always look forward to chatting with Nellie every week to review how my previous week went and talk about nutrition. Thank you, Nellie and Profile!read more
Jessica L.
I don’t even know where to start with how life-changing Profile Stanford helped me transition into healthier eating habits. I am extremely happy & grateful for all the support and motivation.My coach Nellie went above and beyond to help me stay focused and empowered me to believe in myself.My... takeaways are:🙌🏼DO IT!🙌🏼Invest in yourself!🙌🏼Positive changes will happen with Profile more
Elizabeth M.
The Roscoe Village team is great, and the plan was easy to follow. I was able to eat balanced meals and still lost over 20 lbs. Before Profile, I was trying to lose weight on my own and plateued - Profile got me back on track. Very happy with my results.

I did not think I could ever lose weight again. August 2019 60 years old, size 16 pants and 3x shirts. I had been this size (at some points larger) for at least 10 years. All but given up, I was told about Profile. Now Nov2019, size 10 pants, size L tops, I feel FABULOUS!More energy than I... have had in years! Saw my Dr yesterday for the first time since May, he was completely blown away! I cannot say enough good things about this program. The counselors are so helpful, they do not ‘shame’ you, or make you get on a scale in front of other people. They make suggestions, share recipes, help you figure out why you had a less than stellar week, and they will definately celebrate your successes with you too!read more
Valerie R
If I could give 6 stars I would! I am originally from Sioux Falls, South Dakota - home of Sanford Hospital and the original Sanford Profile locations. My coach and store manager, Taylor Neff, has been absolutely phenomenal! She has been such a support and stuck with me along the way. I would... highly recommend Taylor and the Deer Park Sanford Profile location to anyone who is looking for a long-term lifestyle change where you will be supported and feel encouraged! Keep up the great work guys!!read more
Sarah H.
I have lost 22 pounds and I attribute my success to the Profile Program but even more so to my coach, Judy Brenner. Judy is a great listener to the point where she is able to come up with strategies to help a person understand the key components for being successful while losing weight and even... more so for keeping it off! Judy has taught me so much about how to eat healthy and enjoy life at the same time. Judy is an asset to Profile by Sanford and anyone who has the pleasure of working with her will be well taken care of and will be very successful in their weight loss journey. I would not be where I am today with out Judy Brenner!!read more
Esther O.
The program at Profile has been really easy to follow! It is structured so you know exactly what to eat and when to eat it. I have an extremely hectic schedule, and have been able to loose 60 lbs so far, because of how wonderful this program is.Profile is exactly what I needed to get me on track,... and the staff is exactly what I need to help me stay on track! Because of Profile By Sanford, I am finally getting my weight under more
Becky J.
Starting my third week with Profile and so far lost 11 pounds. The coaches are great! They understand my needs. They help explain the changes I'm feeling. I will say that it was very scary to start with the amount of calories that was prescribed for my plan but I decided that if I want a change, I... needed to trust the program and I am glad I did. It takes dedication and if you're serious about making a change, you can with this more
Delila G.
I was at my all-time heaviest weight when I joined Profile and looking to make some big changes. Even though I was already working out 3-5 times a week at OrangeTheory Fitness, I was still eating horribly. I would go hours without eating or have huge and unhealthy meals. I had no idea how much my... eating habits were impacting me. Profile has not only helped me lose 20 pounds in 5 months, but it has also helped me learn what it means to truly take care of my body — eating every 2-3 hours, choosing the right foods, and drinking enough water. It has even helped me gain the confidence to start cooking and trying out new recipes! I know that even after I hit my goal weight, I’ll continue to utilize what I’ve learned from Profile because it really has been a lifestyle change!read more
Anna T.
The best part of Profile is weekly nutritional counseling. Helps you stay on track and it’s great to troubleshoot and find solutions that work for your life. Would recommend it to anyone! I was on the Balance Plan that is more about weight loss through calorie reduction as opposed to a keto diet.... Balance Plan isn’t dramatically different from what I’ve done on my own in the past. For me, it’s the nutritional counseling that made Profile a different and positive more
