Meet Jean Marr & Madisen Marr

Jean purchased the PV Express in 2016, the LD Express in 2017 and started The Local Connector PG in 2018.
Madisen came on as a business partner in the spring of 2019.

The PV and LD Express were amalgamated and became The Local Connector NW in 2020 to give their advertisers better exposure and more value.
Jean Marr and Madisen Marr are a mother and daughter duo, who understand the advertising business like they were born to do it.

The Marr's own and operate 2 community publications throughout Northern BC including 1 in the Lakes District and Bulkley Valley and 1 in Prince George. This has proven to be an exciting new endeavor that provides the perfect mix of stimulating challenge and the ability to promote local business and community events.

Jean and Madisen are firm believers that small, local business are an integral component of the local economy. "Without them we wouldn't have the vibrant thriving communities we live in" shares the entrepreneurs. "Our fellow small business' are the first to donate to local events and sports". By supporting the little guys over large corporations, customers enable families to enroll their children in extra curricular activities and other such modest lifestyle benefits.

As avid volunteers themselves, Jean likes to give back through the Burns Lake Rotary Club and Madisen through the Lakes District Fall Fair Association there is so much that the community has to offer, especially the willingness of residents to get involved. The Marr's feel that the products and services offered are equally impressive, along with the abundance of sports and recreational opportunities.

They both work from their home's at Tchesinkut Lake, a little piece of paradise nestled close to town. However you slice it, Burns Lake has it all!
