While working as a Clinical Research Coordinator, I realized that a lot
of the patients would have greatly benefited from preventative care. I
wanted to be on the front lines of helping people with healthy lifestyle
choices. I went back to UW-Stevens Point to earn my Masters certification
in Health & Wellness Coaching and my Worksite Wellness certification
from the National Wellness Institute. Wellness Coaching is all about helping
people one relationship at a time and Profile by Sanford lives by this
motto. The morals and research of Profile attracted me to this company.
My path in life is to help others overcome wellness challenges. Profile
gives me the medically accredited tools and plans to help members through
some of the biggest struggles of their lives while also helping them learn
how to never go back.
Guilty Pleasure: Deep fried ice cream or filet mignon (not mixed together though)
Favorite Crayon Color: Bluebird Blue
Mel Certified Profile Coach
Growing up, I didn't have a consistent eating schedule or know what healthy,
balanced eating really looked like. I figured food was food and it was
that simple. I played sports, ran around a lot and ate anything I wanted
all while remaining fit. Come my junior year of college I had halted all
sports but kept my eating habits which resulted in a 50 lb weight gain
and me wondering "how the heck did this happen?" I changed my
major to Health and Wellness studies, got a coach myself, became consistent
and realized that I wasn't alone in the world of "how?" So,
my how became my why, and my why became my passion. I love being able
to encourage and watch people truly unfold and become the greatest version
of themselves. Change is not often linear and we all need that extra push
through those bumps in the road.
Hobbies: Powerlifting, my dogs and gardening are my top three and are easily incorporated
into my life every single day!
Favorite Crayon Color: If I were a crayon I'd be grey just because it's my favorite color. Groutfits
(grey outfits), grey walls, grey bedding. All different shades!
Favorite TV Show: I have to go all the way back to the 90's cartoons. Hey Arnold, Rocket
Power, Wild Thornberries, and Rugrats.
Kim Certified Profile Coach
I was working as a nutritionist in a hospital and the thing I enjoyed most
about it was educating and interacting with patients. It was great to
see people change their lives with good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
The thing is, in a hospital, if the people take your advice, you typically
don't see them back again! I was longing for a career that would let me
connect with people and provide greater support in their journey to good
health. Coaching with Profile has been an excellent place to make those
connections and help and encourage members in their journey.
Interests/Hobbies: Yoga, hiking, camping, traveling, holistic health and the beach
Favorite TV Show: The x-files & three's company (an odd combo, I know)
Dream Job: I'd be a DJ because I love music and they always look like they're happy
and having fun.

I'm a proud employee of Profile and also a happy member! Joining Profile
was my "hail-mary" in my "sport" of dieting. I have
always struggled to manage my weight - but I could usually keep things
under control and lose weight when needed through diet and exercise. Then
- sigh - age started playing tricks on me! Though I was eating and exercising
the same as always, I started gaining weight - and gaining more weight
- it was very upsetting. Nothing worked, and I tried just about every
type of diet - not kidding. I was in new territory and I was shocked.
I had just about given up, when I discovered the Profile Plan and warily
gave it a try. I followed the plan, and between the weekly coaching sessions
and the Profile food options - it really did the trick. I am currently
at my goal weight and maintaining into my second year. I am delighted
to be part of the great staff that helped me - and excited to see others
reach their goals.
Hobbies: Playing tennis, playing the guitar, dancing Salsa with my hubby and walking
our dog Coco
Favorite Movies: Shirley Valentine & Arsenic and Old Lace
Favorite TV Show: 70's Disco - and anything my daughter sings 🙂
