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)

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.
Jared Certified Profile Coach
I started with Profile as just a job to get me through Grad-school. As
I continued to coach more and more and see the growth of the store in
Evansville, it became so motivating to myself to see all the people changing
their lives! As my time grow as a coach I started to really set into a
grove of my own coaching style. I started creating some meaningful relationships
with some members that would regularly meet with me, and as they started
to change their lives for the better through their weight loss journey
my members started to challenge me as well. In the end it all comes back
to Profile's mission -
Change lives one relationship at a time. This is how we help our members have a better live style, we become more
than just their health coach we become a friend! It is so encouraging
to see your members change their life, and become a different person through
health and wellness in their own lives!
Hobbies: Family time, golf time, which sometimes are together in one activity!
Theme Song: The Final Countdown by Europe
Hidden Talent: I've played piano for 20+ years and guitar for 8 years
