I am the owner and manager of JBS BUSINESS SERVICES located in Trail.  I earned my MBA from York University with concentrations in management accounting, entrepreneurial studies and marketing, a BA(H) and BEd from the University of Western Ontario, a Post-Graduate Certificate from UBC in valuation techniques, and my Provincial Instructor Diploma from Vancouver Community College.

My professional experience is broad, including the operating of my own contracting businesses, managing the Personal Copier team for the Toronto marketer of Canon Canada, and involvement in the not-for-profit sector as Executive Director of our local KBRH Health Foundation for five years during the transition to Interior Health.  I have also instructed business law at Selkirk College in the Business Administration Program as well as in the Instructor Diploma Program with Vancouver Community College.

My goal is to be successful in business, well, really successful in life.  And for me to be successful, my clients have to be successful.  To this end, the effort I am willing and able to put forward follows a unique path to ensure we both succeed so I am pleased to provide to your organization not only management accounting expertise but an array of consulting experience – from business start-up and business succession planning to sales training and technical writing to personal tax planning and wealth preservation strategies.

I have called the Greater Trail area home for twenty five years now and I am committed to my community.  I was a Board member for 7 years serving 4 as President of the Trail & District Chamber of Commerce, and I am the former Secretary of the LeRoi Community Foundation of Greater Trail, and a past President of the Beaver Valley Nursery School Society. I have acted as a mentor with the Kootenay-Boundary Junior Dragon’s Den helping budding young entrepreneurs. Home is Trail with my wife Tammie, an instructor in the Nursing Program at Selkirk College, and our six kids – although 4 are pursuing education elsewhere at this time … and one’s just come back to work in town!



I am a Chartered Professional Accountant specialized in public practice.  I completed my CGA and graduated with a Diploma in Business Administration – Financial Management, with a minor in computer science, from Mount Royal College in Alberta.  The West Kootenay has been home since 1993.

My professional experience includes being the finance manager for infrastructure construction projects, controller of a multi-branch business, and auditor for city and government related organizations.  In amongst those roles I have also gained accounting and tax experience in the small business sector.

As the Senior Accountant for JBS my priority is to help you optimize your business operations using best accounting, tax, and business management practices.  I also really enjoy supporting my colleagues at JBS … it’s quite the team.

I was involved with Girl Guides for years and was Treasurer with the Beaver Valley Nursery School.
