Courtney Schand, CS Nutrition (Nashville Business Radio, Episode 8)
Courtney Schand combined her training in both nutrition and coaching into a holistic approach to shifting client’s mindsets around their relationship to food and their body. She joined host John Ray to share the tools she uses from both disciplines to support her clients. “Nashville Business Radio” is produced virtually from the Nashville studio of Business RadioX®.
In nutrition coaching sessions, Courtney Shand supports clients in healing their relationship with food and developing stronger connections through simple mind-body tools that transform the way they nourish themselves. She believes when they are strong and well-nourished, they are able to feel their best and support those around them with more integrity.
As important as she believes nutrition to be, it alone doesn’t complete the picture of health, nor does it have to be done perfectly to have drastic improvements in quality of life. The body is the client’s biggest ally in managing weight. So if weight has felt like a “battle”, or their body is “in rebellion” against their goals, Courtney’s tools will help them reconnect with their “teammate” (their body) and move toward better health with ease. Together, Courtney and her clients work to nourish them from the inside out and the outside in to dramatically transform their lives.
Courtney Schand, Nourishionist/Registered Dietitian, CS Nutrition
Courtney is a Tennessee native. She has always been fascinated with what humans need to thrive and grow. After receiving her Master’s degree in Nutrition, she quickly realized prescribing a diet and telling people what they needed to do wasn’t all they needed. She studied trauma and became a relationship coach and finally was able to share the practical strategies to help people feel in charge of their own experience when it comes to their health and their body. She believes your diet shouldn’t be the thing you spend all day thinking about- it should be supporting your goals and the things you’re passionate about. This is a “well-nourished” life.
Courtney has a Bachelor’s in Human Ecology from Tennessee Technological Institute and a Master’s in Public Health Nutrition from the University of Tennessee Knoxville.
