Meet Marilyn Berglund

Marilyn Berglund is the owner of The PV Express

Marilyn Berglund likes to keep busy, but definitely not by waiting in lineups or traffic, which is just one of the reasons she chose to live in northern British Columbia. Originally from Vancouver, it was the time she spent in Kimberley that grew her passion for small communities and the people who choose to live in them. A job offer took her to the Smithers/Telkwa area where she had the opportunity to work and travel throughout northern BC coordinating marketing initiatives for small business. Again work took Marilyn and her husband to the Okanagan, but after just a few years, the Bulkley Valley was calling and “Happily, we’re back!” says Marilyn. “I love the space and quiet of the area; the people are down-to-earth, friendly and quite entrepreneurial. It is just a pleasure to be part of the community and hopefully contribute.”

For Marilyn the chance to purchase the small weekly paper was the perfect opportunity to participate in the region and to continue to support small business and events. “I hope to continually improve the services I can provide to the local business person or non-profit groups. It is all just so much fun." says Marilyn.

If Marilyn is not at the computer or busy folding upwards of 1200 papers, you will find her at the golf course, fishing a favorite lake or just working in the garden.
