"My granny was a nurse in the war and she was my biggest role model, and we often talked about nursing.
"If she was alive today she would be thrilled and truly understand the real meaning of what it is to be a Queen's Nurse."
Mrs Moxham was also awarded the Sirona Care and Health Chairman's Award for Innovation for her work on giving intravenous (IV) therapy to patients.
She said: "Until a year ago I was a community staff nurse working unsocial hours to fit in with my four children.
"The opportunity of IV therapy nurse became available and my husband, Tim, sacrificed his developing career for me to develop mine.
"In this past year I have had the opportunity to develop the IV service and clinics.
"I have been privileged to meet and care for some of the most inspirational patients, who in their illness have given me the chance to tailor-make a service to their needs and from this the service has continued to develop and grow."
Sirona chief executive Janet Rowse said: "We are thrilled that Emma's significant contribution to nursing has been recognised nationally, and we are so pleased that she is part of our team here at Sirona.
"She is a real asset to us."
