Welcome to iLiveWell Business Academy! This course is our first course to guide you towards opening and running the private practice of your dreams.

  1. In school I was not taught the basics of business and marketing, or anything related to having a business or private practice. For me I learned about foodservice and what is the best way to serve green beans (tongs is the correct answer on my CDE exam).
  2. Somehow we began to believe that making money is wrong, and that begins to mess with our self worth and our industry.
  3. There wasn’t easily accessible guides for dietitians/wellness processionals in private practice that seems like it expressed my unique, creative, and fun personality.

This is where my journey began over 10 years ago. Through that time I learn so much and want to share that with you!

Adrien Paczosa is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian practicing in Austin, Texas and the surrounding counties. Adrien is also a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian(CEDRD).

Adrien began her path towards nutrition through her falling down. She has been a dancing since age 2 and in college was a Kilgore College Rangerette. During a 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 carrier as a staff dietitian at 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 movment 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 and has only continued to grown. To date, iLiveWell Nutrition Therapy has multiple locations, contracts with numerous corporations and treatment centers, and currently five dietitians are employed under iLiveWell. “Creating better access to dieitians!” has been one of the driving forces of Adrien’s company.

Adrien has been active in the local, state and national dietetic association volunteering and holding board positions. She is currently the Texas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Media Representative, which has allowed her to educate more Texaans on the power of food. Becoming a board member of BHN has been a gift and honor to Adrien, and she continues to believe and strive to hold the bar set by BHN members to the highest degree of professional expectations.

In between Adrien’s time at her office and volunteering you can find her with her new husband and step kids power lifting or cheering on her husband at power lifting competitions, snuggling with her French Bull dog Maybelline or on all the social media channels posting about food, nutrition, and mental health.
