Becky Harpstrite

Becky Harpstrite

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 VP of Marketing, and the rest is history in the making!  

Greg Easter

Greg Easter

SVP of Sales

Greg holds a B.A. in Marketing from Texas Tech University and spent most of his early life in the family retail clothing business. Sales has always been in Greg’s blood.  He worked as Vice President for two divisions of the largest national natural food broker before jumping to the manufacturing side of the business. Three companies later he landed at Hilary’s and claims to have regained his “soul”.  Greg’s go-to quote rings true - “The fact that Hilary’s is an authentic company that makes great tasting, better-for-you cuisine makes it a joy to come to work every day”.  A retired coach and aspiring gardener Greg spends most of his free time hanging out with his wife and 3 kids.

Latest project: Felling cedar trees from his land and milling them to make furniture.

Brad Russell

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.

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.

Morgan Starkey

Staff Accountant

Morgan was born and raised in North East Kansas. Morgan earned her Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, majoring in Accounting and Finance from Kansas State University. After college she took a small detour to Nebraska for a job opportunity. It took one short year for Morgan to click her ruby slippers (her choice was bright red cowgirl boots) and make her way home to Kansas! Hilary’s Eat Well was in search of a numbers cruncher and brought Morgan on to join the team. She is excited to work with energetic people that are passionate about their food!

 

Hobbies: Fishing, Gardening, Baking Yummy Food to share with family :)
