A pleasure to have worked with you: Good luck, Melanie

From time to time one is lucky to meet a very unusual person and this is exactly how I felt when I met Melanie Charron at Elections Canada.  She was unique because she understood and she knew exactly what to do.  She was innovative and insightful and she always seemed to know what to do before I asked her a question.

I met Melanie in February 2014 and had the pleasure of working with her until March 2018. It was a great experience for me and I learned a lot from her.

Whenever I traveled to Ottawa to attend one of the face-to-face meetings hosted by Elections Canada, Melanie was always there to lend a helping hand.  Her guiding techniques were first class and her commitment to attention was second to none.  Melanie knew how to communicate with me as someone who is vision-impaired.

At my last meeting she went beyond the call of duty to place a dongle on the door to my hotel room; a very thoughtful and innovative action.

Good luck, Melanie!  I am going to miss you!
