Adrien Paczosa is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian practicing in Austin, Texas, and the surrounding counties.  She is the founder of I Live Well Nutrition as well as being the founder of Fearless Practitioners, the division of her business that offers training to dietitians and wellness professionals.

Adrien began her path towards nutrition by falling down. She has been dancing since age 2 and in college was a Kilgore College Rangerette. During practice she took a fall and broke her foot, and that sparked the ideas of needing a new direction in her life. After graduating in 2003 from the University of Illinois – Chicago with a bachelor of science degree in Human Nutrition, Adrien began her career as a staff dietitian at a hospital in downtown Chicago.  She was promoted to the hospital’s Director of Food Service and Nutrition and was responsible for all food preparation as well as patient nutritional care.

While working at her clinical job, Adrien maintained her passion for movement by working as a personal trainer and nutrition coach in downtown Chicago.  In 2006, Adrien returned to Texas to be close to family, friends, and warmer weather! She opened her private practice, I Live Well Nutritional Therapy in 2007 to Create better access to dietitians.
