A portrait of Breana Killeen, M.P.H., RD

Breana Lai Killeen, M.P.H., RD, is the test kitchen & editorial operations manager at EatingWell magazine in Shelburne, Vermont. She oversees the development, production and nutrition analysis of 500-plus recipes per year as well as helping manage day-to-day operations to keep everything running smoothly. Breana has a master's degree in public health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu London, a Wine Spirit & Education Trust-trained sommelier and a registered dietitian. Before joining EatingWell in 2013 as an associate food editor, she owned a nutrition and catering business, worked as a sommelier at a Relais & Châteaux inn and fried a lot of oysters in her restaurant years.

Breana loves teaching people how to cook, especially if it involves using up all the bits and pieces left in the veggie drawer to make something seemingly impressive for her twins. When she's not cooking or chasing toddlers, you can find her out on her farm wrangling 150 chickens, 8 cows, 2 dogs and her tractor-loving husband.
