If only all media and communications officers were as easy to work with as Melissa Pouliot. Her media releases are always concise and easy to read, perfect for audio or print media purposes. And she sends them to me while the news is current because she understands old news is no news. She is mindful of topics relevant to my program content, so I know if a release comes through it will always be suitable for on-air use. Melissa is easily contactable, follows up on every detail, ensures interviews are arranged in a timely manner and is always a pleasure to deal with.

They know their story will be fairly told.
