Favourite dentist

DR. ANNE CROWLEY

Dr. Anne Crowley is Pemberton's top toothy expert once more, having won the honours in 2011 and 2012. She has practiced in the community for 36 years, working part time now after selling her practice two years ago. "I have a great staff and office. It's just a good support group and I owe my success to them," she said. "I don't want to stop working because I would miss my wonderful patients."

Favourite veterinarian

DR. LAURA WHITE

Laura White joined Pemberton Veterinary Hospital this spring and has obviously made an impression by taking the top spot this year. "I began locuming in the fall of 2012 and fell in the love with the valley and practice," she said. "I started my career in a small rural community in north central B.C., and then spent a year and a half living and working in the Okanagan. Working again in a small farming community reminded me how much I had missed it. The clinic has a great staff, and our clients are wonderful. I look forward to growing the business and continuing to get to know more people in the Pemberton valley."

Dr. Christine Kirby, Owl Creek Veterinary Hospital and the overall care provided by the Pemberton Veterinary Hospital tied for second.

Favourite realtor

DANIELLE MENZEL

Danielle Menzel is Pemberton's most popular realtor, specializing in the village and the surrounding recreational areas. She said the market in Pemberton has been growing and that 2013 has been busy for her compared to previous years. Menzel believes this is due to a new wave of residents moving into the community.

"It's super flattering. You don't realize that your business has grown that much and you've made that impression. You're just busy doing the job. It's great to be noticed," Menzel said.

Erin McCardle Stiel was voted second most popular realtor, followed by Lisa Korthals.

Favourite outdoor guide

BOB MENZEL

Pemberton's favourite outdoor guide is Bob Menzel, year after year, he's been guiding people on horseback in the region for 30 years. "It's kinda cool. We try to be that way," he said. This year he has been busy. "Tourism in Pemberton, in general, I think, has picked up. You go into town at lunch and it seems like 80 per cent of the people you don't know, they're visitors." He said a lot of his business comes from Whistler and from there all over the world. The experiences they are after range from enjoying the beautiful views to experiencing the beautiful horses. They're hoping to have sleigh ridges this winter.

Second place went to guide Eric Pehota, of whom Menzel said he would be happy to have come in second place to himself.
