Dr Emma Kirke of Medicinal Kitchen has been recognised for her outstanding business performance and has been nominated for three categories as part of the Yorkshire Choice Awards.
The nominations mark the start of a successful year in business for Emma who set up Medicinal Kitchen in 2013, following a series of personal battles including a car accident which left her paralysed, and most recently, breast cancer.
In 2015, the clinical nutritional therapist was highly commended in the Unsung Hero category in the Yorkshire Evening Post Best of Health Awards, which recognised workers in the health sector who had demonstrated a willingness to go above and beyond for people in need.
Now, Emma has also qualified for three categories in the Yorkshire Choice Awards, including Inspirational Individual of the Year, Businesswoman of the Year and Independent Business of The Year. The Yorkshire Choice Awards acknowledge local people and independent businesses that are an inspiration in their field.
The Yorkshire Choice Awards ceremony will be held at The Centenary Pavillions in Leeds on 2 April 2016 and the public vote is open until the end of February.
Through healthy food and fitness Emma learnt to combat her own physical and mental afflictions and she has already helped hundreds of others via bespoke specialised dietary requirement plans. Teaming this with her knowledge of Osteomyology, Emma has been able to treat sprains, arthritis, asthma, skin conditions and more.
Emma told us that is she astonished to be considered for all these awards. She has been incredibly determined to channel her own battels to help others but still overwhelmed and honoured that she has been shortlisted for such prestigious events.
