With two decades of experience in Canadian nurseries, in 2016 I took ownership of Peels Nurseries Ltd. Throughout my entire career, I have always worked in the horticulture field. After completing a Doctor of Philosophy in horticulture, I felt it wasn’t enough and continued to gain more knowledge about BC native and ornamental plants.
I joined Peels Nurseries a few months after my father purchased the business to give him a hand, but I soon found that I enjoyed learning about BC native and ornamental plants, so it became my full-time job.
After completing a Master of computer applications; I did book keeping and accounting certification courses from University of Fraser Valley. Shortly after, I joined Peels Nurseries to give them hand with book keeping and payroll. I pride myself handling Peels Nurseries administrative and accounting tasks on day to day basis.
