RIDGEFIELD, CT - Spring has arrived and with it, a sense of renewal and newfound health – topics that nutrition therapist, Meredith Mulhearn, is a definite proponent of. Ms. Mulhearn, owner of Cucumber and Chamomile, LLC (www.cucumberandchamomile.com), assists children and adults seeking healthier diets and optimal wellness. Her business, launched last June, has been an asset to the Ridgefield community and beyond, and her important work has not gone unnoticed. On April 26, The National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP) awarded Ms. Mulhearn their 2014 “Going Up” award, given to “an NANP member, in professional practice for three (3) years or less, who has already begun to obtain visibility, success and distinction in their business.”
In just a short time, Meredith Mulhearn has made her mark. She has built a steady clientele, spearheaded the “Eat Well Ridgefield” initiative, launched a speaking series at the local retailer, Nature’s Temptations, and participated in the Ridgefield Visiting Nurse Association (RVNA) health fair. In addition, Mulhearn is the nutrition consultant at the Ridgefield Recreation Center, is collaborating with wellness company, NuWeigh, provides employee workshops regarding better nutrition and has also presented at WestConn.
Ms. Mulhearn’s commitment to improving health and wellness in Fairfield County caught the attention of Patty Lennon, CEO of Danbury’s coaching firm, Mom Gets a Life, who nominated her for the “Going Up” award. “Meredith Mulhearn’s dedication to her mission to support each person’s health and vibrancy through nutrition never ceases to amaze me. I can’t imagine anyone is more deserving of this award than Meredith,” said Ms. Lennon.
Cucumber & Chamomile offers a host of services to those seeking weight loss and overall improved health via custom programming. In a soothing spa-like environment, she guides clients to make changes requiring minimal effort, but which achieve significant results. A former teacher, Ms. Mulhearn focuses on education, providing tools that allow clients to maintain healthy habits for a lifetime. Since support is so crucial to success, Meredith acts as a “food coach” with a personal touch, allowing clients unlimited texting. Her business has thrived in a brief time, with positive word-of-mouth referrals. Ms. Mulhearn is grateful for her growing client base, involvement in the community and especially, her recent recognition from NANP. “I’m so honored to receive this prestigious award. My success is a reflection of the steadfast support I’ve received and the people I’ve worked with, both in and outside of my office. I’ve especially been inspired by those willing to embrace lifestyle changes -- their courage drives me to be the best nutrition therapist possible. Many thanks to both the Ridgefield community and the NANP.”
