About Us

Above and Beyond Quality

In May 2014, I proudly opened Positive Plumbing & Mechanical Inc.

Prior to opening my own business, I was employed as an apprentice and a licensed plumber in both British Columbia and Ontario from 2009-2013. In these roles, I gained valuable hands-on experience in commercial, residential plumbing and gas, as well as mechanical systems and equipment.

In 2012, I graduated from the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) for training, with my Red Seal Plumbing License, G2 Gas Certificate, and Cross Connection Control Certificate.

Between 2007 and 2009, I completed my Class 4 Power Engineering training and received my Red Seal in the trade. I became the Lead Engineer at Fairmont Chateau Whistler (FCW). I left the FCW with extensive training in leadership, troubleshooting, coordinating employee training, health and safety-and, most importantly, customer service. Throughout my tenure, I received multiple awards for service, dedication and performance.

"I appreciate the time you are taking to consider “Positive Plumbing & Mechanical Inc.” as a new vendor for you and/or your company. Having my own company has been a goal of mine for many years. Now is my opportunity to offer you my knowledge, experience and strong work ethic - There is a strong need in the plumbing industry today for both quality workmanship and superior customer service. I am dedicated to both. I am fully committed to working with you to meet your  expectations and satisfaction.​"
