Dunboyne woman's gift to the White House

Kira and Mark Walton

 Dunboyne native, Kira Walton, had reason to celebrate recently, when her company’s products were presented as a gift to the US First Lady, Michelle Obama.
Taoiseach, Enda Kenny presented the First Lady with a gift box of Voya products, after presenting President Barack Obama with the traditional bowl of shamrock on his St Patrick’s Day visit to the Whitehouse.
Kira, a daughter of Leo and Rosemary Guckian, and her husband, Mark Walton, are founders of Voya, a Sligo-based company which produces the world’s first truly organic seaweed-derived luxury beauty brand.
Their luxury products and therapies are exported around the world and clients include some of the world’s top spas in the UK, US, Canada, Germany, France, Dubai, Saudi, Macau, Portugal and Hong Kong.
The gift was specially chosen with the First Lady Michelle Obama in mind and was a collection of the brand’s most-loved products.
The gift holds great significance as the Taoiseach was promoting Irish companies as a source of high quality products and services during his visit to the US. 
Ms Walton won the Enterprise Ireland Female Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the 7th Annual Women Mean Business Conference in Dublin’s Shelbourne Hotel last autumn.
