Meet the Team
Our Founder and Queen of Congee
Karen M Taylor, L.Ac.
Karen Taylor is a licensed acupuncturist and Diplomat of Acupuncture in Eugene, Oregon and has been in private practice since 1995. She received her Diplomat of Chinese Herbology in 1994.
Karen founded Breakfast Cure® in 2017 to facilitate adopting congee as a morning ritual for everyone from toddlers to doctors of Chinese medicine.
“Congee is my favorite method for bringing ease into any morning schedule. My wish is for you to have time in the morning to relax with a warm, delicious, satisfying breakfast bowl that you know is a good way to start your day. Pre-packaged Breakfast Cure® makes it easier than ever to have a relaxing, healthy start to your day.”
Our Production Manager
Ashley oversees production of every Breakfast Cure® meal. With meticulous attention to every detail, Ashley ensures our kitchen is sparkling clean, efficient, gluten-free, and always fun and fresh. Her ideas and opinions make her an invaluable member of Team Breakfast Cure®. When she isn’t working, find her dancing and performing with her team, The Mother Flexers.
Our Chief of Operations
Jeff Bryan is the master of optimizing and streamlining our systems from start to finish. Every flavor passes his ultra-foodie taste test before making the cut. Jeff is critical to every stage of Breakfast Cure® growth and development. Of course he is! He’s married to Karen Taylor.
Our Brand and Ethics Mastermind
Thea takes the eagle’s eye view, and keeps us on track in the modern era so Karen can remain focused on the ancient wisdom. Thea’s expertise in branding, marketing, and business integrity inspired us to dub her our Breakfast Cure® Fairy Godmother.
Our Fulfillment Maven
Production and fulfillment are the name of the game and Hailee is taking charge and getting your order out to you as soon as humanly possible. Bringing grace and ease to all she does, Hailee is the newest awesome Breakfast Cure® Team treasure. She’s so sweet you’d never guess she’s blasting punk rock on her off hours.
Our Production Team
Ethan has been part of the Breakfast Cure® kitchen team from practically the beginning when he was still in high school, Now he’s rocking pre-med at The University of Oregon, in our own backyard. We love having all those smarts on our kitchen crew. Go Ethan and go Ducks!
Our Editor in Chief
Proof-reader extraordinaire! Librarian by day, Lorie is our brilliant editor by night. We are extremely fortunate to have her eyes on our copy to ensure we communicate clearly, effectively, and efficiently. She’s a stickler on visual alignment as well, and we love her for that attention to detail.
Our Food Photographer
A picture speaks a thousand words. Mary’s photos of our ingredients allow their true beauty to shine. Mainly a nature photographer, Mary’s work has delighted our customers as well as our Team from the first snap of the shutter. A match made in heaven.
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
