Tim Hildreth

(Co-Founder & Owner) Tim's ability to push through many situations has made CML what it is today. He takes complete pride in the products we deliver and oversees all facets of quality and "air traffic" control. We consider ourselves "vegetable chauffeurs," as Tim would say lightheartedly, but a job he takes very seriously. Seasonally Tim likes to play hockey and wiffle ball. He also enjoys kayaking, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, being in the kitchen cooking and going to Maine or traveling with his wife Jacki, daughter Kaelyn and other family & friends.

Jacki Hildreth

(Co-Founder) A Registered Nurse who's 14 year nursing career spans across many hospitals, functioning in many roles, via travel nursing and a genuine thirst for learning. Still passionate for nursing but feeling it was time to learn something new, the idea of starting a business, which could eventually impact the communities we serve, felt right. Sticking true to her humanitarian roots, the company is centered around ensuring the customers and "community" are taken care of, regardless of the situation. Jacki is also an avid reader, cook and you will almost always find her listening to an array of music or stealing a nap. During warm, sunny weather loves anything beach or lake related with family & friends. Watching daughter Kaelyn grow, hiking, gardening, biking, kayaking, camping, traveling, coastal Maine trips in the winter, being a mum to Kaelyn and wife to Tim, are also top favs!
