Hilary is the creative chef behind Hilary's Eat Well creations.

Now, she's is hanging ten on the big learning curve of wholesale food business. Digging the challenges as much as the successes and thanking the Universe for the opportunity to work with an energy packed creative team committed to creating a better future for all.
Vice President of Operations
Brad brings a wealth of operational super power to the team at Hilary's Eat Well. A graduate of Kansas State University, Brad earned a Bachelor of Business Administration. He's such a busy worker, that he doesn't have much time for fancy and ellaborate website bios. Some of his favorites include bulldogs, online auctions and making smoothies at lunch.
Chief Financial Officer & President
Vice President of Marketing
A proud Kansas native, Becky grew up in the countryside outside of Wichita. After graduating from the Colorado Institute of Art with a degree in graphic design, Becky moved to Lawrence to study art history at the University of Kansas. Becky and Hilary met in 2007 when Hilary was offering samples of The World's Best Veggie Burgers at KU. Hilary says she will never forget the day their eyes met! When Becky took the leap and started her own company in 2009, she worked with Hilary to create the Hilary's Eat Well brand. She then came on board as the creative director and brand manager, and the rest is history in the making!

Carl comes from 5+ years working in organic & natural grocery retail. His love for great food and ingredients comes only second to his passion for eating them. He may not be vegetarian, he may not be gluten-intolerant, but he sure loves his veggie patties. Likes spending time in the park, on his deck, with his friends, with his dog, and sure, with a cold beer.
Amy’s gypsy roots had her growing up in such diverse settings as urban New Jersey and Chicago, a cabin by the lake in Minnesota, and a very rural sheep farm in Montana. Amy recently returned from a 5 year stint in New Zealand, which she adored. Her degree is in theater from the University of Kansas, but she has spent many years in the health food industry, working for the former Wild Oats, both in Lawrence and in Kansas City. Amy is also a student at Kanas City’s Core Star Energy Healing School.
What do you love right now?
Star Trek and all things sci-fi, performing on stage, funny people, big laughs, good food, great books, sycamore trees, Minnesotan accents (see “funny people” and “big laughs”), and naps with my cat.
