Meet Your Profile by Sanford - Madison, WI Team

Certified Profile Coach

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.

Hobbies: Ice hockey, bird watching, camping, fishing, canoeing, anything outdoors!

Guilty Pleasure: Deep fried ice cream or filet mignon (not mixed together though)

Favorite Crayon Color: Bluebird Blue

Certified Profile Coach

I always knew I wanted to do something in health care, but the more I learned and shadowed, the more frustrated I became. Almost everyone came into a health clinic for a quick fix for their health issue, often times not addressing the real issue. This is when I realized my passion for health/ well-being and focusing on the preventative approach- digging deeper into how a healthy life-style change could help prevent many health issues and improve quality of life. My passion is to help people find a healthy balance in their life where they can thrive. I love seeing members take control of their health and helping guide them to continue living a healthy lifestyle. Building relationships with each member and seeing them succeed is something I look forward to on a daily basis.

Hobbies: I am an outdoors junkie- I love running, hiking, water skiing, kayaking, biking, snowshoeing, camping, and so much more!

Guilty Pleasure: I love making/crafting hand-painted wooden signs

Favorite TV Show: Fixer Upper on HGTV

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.

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

Certified Profile Coach

I believe that we all deserve to live a life by design. My mission is to help liberate others through the right nutrition, activity and lifestyle care. That is why I am at Profile changing lives one relationship at a time. My story means the world to me but may seem rather simple to you. I grew up in a small town in the Northwoods of Wisconsin with all the love and adventure that I could ask for. I went off to college at Lawrence University where “Lawrentians defy definition.” The diversity of experience, thought, place of origin, class, religious preference, race, interest and other individual characteristics that compromise the Lawrence community make such a definition impossible. I gained so much from both chapters of my life individually, but the contrast of each environment put me through a culture shock, maturing my perspective, resourcefulness and mission in life. My world didn't completely turn upside down until my senior year. The tipping point wasn't due to the diversity I was immersed in, but rather because of the concussion I battled my senior year. One week of recovery turned into one month of plugging my ears when professors lectured, wearing sunglasses indoors, and learning how to deal with anxiety. I was an “overachieving” student, athlete, and leader adjusting to a lifestyle that didn't feel like me.

After months of specialty doctors and therapies, I realized they couldn’t "magically" fix me, so I began doing my own research and experimenting. I became obsessed with health & wellness, soaking up everything I could. Using my knowledge as potential power, I led myself to be nearly symptom free 9 months post the incident. This new lifestyle began to feel like me and the becoming of my journey to be my best self. From that point on, I've made it my mission to help others achieve the health and life by design we deserve

Hobbies: I balance weight training, yoga, and HIIT throughout the week and invest a large portion of my day with my significant other & dog! Sipping coffee, bird watching, tending my garden & listening to brain fuel are a few items in my morning/evening rituals!

Guilty Pleasure: My significant other and I love date night with cheese curds, Culver's ice cream & the movies!

Superhero: Diana, an Amazonian warrior in training, who leaves home to fight a war, discovering her full powers and rue destiny. She is more commonly known as Wonder Woman.
