Marietta Harrison - Soothie Sucker's Founder, CEO, & Mom Marietta Harrison is a true "mompreneur." About 15 years ago, before most pediatricians stopped prescribing antibiotics for many common ailments, Marietta lost faith in the medical community. Relying on her own research and input from friends and fellow parents familiar with natural medicine, she began creating her own herbal remedies and mixing them with fruit juices to help treat her own children.
Years later, while brainstorming with her husband, musician Michael Allen Harrison, and his sister, they came up with the idea to put natural medicines into ice pops. As they began to move forward with their idea, they were amazed at the lack of products available to treat children for colds and other illnesses. Marietta's experience with adding herbal medicines to her children's fruit juice helped them develop a great tasting and effective product - and Soothie Suckers were born.
