About Me: Joel has quite a varied background. It all started in Forestry with 10 years of work in forest firefighting, tree falling, logging, treeplanting, and brushing. After that, he got into small business ownership and operated the Revelstoke U-Brew for 6 years. Joel managed the whole business and staff and oversaw the production. During this time, there was some overlap with construction, carpentry and general contracting. Joel moved a home from Mica Creek to Revelstoke for himself and his wife and spent a few years sprucing it up. It included a secondary suite and a garage. He also did all the landscaping, irrigation, fencing and sod as well. After this, Joel went to work in the oil industry of Northern Alberta for two years and travelled back and forth. He worked as a hydrovac, vacuum, and high pressure steam operator. Next up, was a half year hiatus with his wife, where they travelled around the world. It was during this time, they decided to move to Burton, BC. Joel recently received his real estate license and is working with Royal LePage Selkirk Realty in Nakusp, BC. He loves the Arrow Lake valley and eagerly promotes it to anyone willing to listen! During his spare time, Joel is developing a flower and market garden farm on their acreage in Burton with his wife, Kristi. He also manages and operates a full time nightly vacation rental and works as an auxiliary ferry operator on the Arrow Lakes cable ferries.
