My canadian story

After thriving careers as entrepreneurs in Belgium, in September 2011, Patrick and his wife Laura moved to Peachland. They opened A Day's Dream B&B, named after their Leonberger dog, Day. They also started a wine tour company, Winelicious Tours, and partnered with a Belgian Master Chocolatier in Vancouver, creating the company Xocolicious. In 2015 the B&B and wine tour businesses were sold.

Since 2021 Patrick operates a consultancy business, PVM Consulting, giving financial advice to young families and adults.

As a newcomer to Peachland, Patrick became a volunteer for the Peachland Chamber of Commerce. In 2012 Patrick was elected to the Chamber's Executive Board as Treasurer; in 2014, he became Interim-President. Patrick stepped down from the Chamber Board of Directors to apply for the manager's job. In May 2014, Patrick took on the management duties of the Chamber as the General Manager and continued to work in this position.


In addition to his duties with Peachland Chamber, Patrick is a co-founder of  BEEPS, founder of the Peachland Recovery Taskforce, co-founder of the Okanagan Folk School Society, and a member of Peachland Rotary Club, and assists in organizing community events with other Peachland community organizations. 

He has served the District of Peachland as a Councillor for four years; in his eyes, the experience required to help you effectively as mayor. However, from what he learned during these years, there is a need for change.


Patrick's love for this community prompted him to put his name forward for Peachland Mayor, and he would be honoured to serve as your Mayor for the next four years.
