In 2013 Emma welcomed the opportunity to work as part of the team at A-C Health Solutions. She was eager to turn her passion for nutrition into a career and provide value to the clients. She has a deep-set interest in food and how it helps to nourish the body, mind and state of health. She is committed to keeping up with advances in nutritional research and her motivation to continue learning about nutritional therapies for optimal health has expanded her knowledge.

Outside of work Emma loves cooking, jogging and shopping! On a Saturday morning she can be found pottering around the stalls at the Limerick Milk Market. Her guilty pleasure is reality T.V. She is originally from Tarbert, Co. Kerry but now lives in Limerick with her husband, two young children, a pet turtle, rabbit and two chickens.
