Revenue Analyst - Quebec
Marielle has been part of the CAPREIT team for the last 5 years. Born Lebanese, she immigrated in Canada with her husband and son. She first started working as a Leasing Specialist on evenings and weekends to move on to an Administrator of Property Services position. On August 11th, 2014, her whole life turned upside down. That day, Marielle learned that she had breast cancer, phase 3.
Strong willed, she returned to work the same day. Marielle tells us with watery eyes: "I had nobody here in Canada. I looked straight ahead and Mrs. Morin, who was like a second mother to me, hugged me so hard. I got love and hugs from all my colleagues" One week later, Marielle got her leave of absence from work.
CAPREIT wished to give her the best possible support. Not only did Marielle receive flowers, kind words and warm wishes, she was also informed that CAPREIT was going to raise money for breast cancer. Pink decorated desks, pink ribbons and boxes for the funds were everywhere in our buildings in Quebec.
During her absence, CAPREIT promoted Marielle to the Revenue Analyst position, to our delight, she accepted. Marielle is often solicited by other companies, but due to the memorable support of her colleagues, she does not want to leave the team. She explains that the gift she received is invaluable. "Love and happiness are more important than anything, even money."
Marielle is still in remission and keeps working for CAPREIT with her contagious smile and her living strength.
