October 2, 2008 · Updated 6:42 PM
It's obvious when you walk into the Snoqualmie Post Office and see Susan Chacko's face that she enjoys her job.
Chacko said she has thoroughly enjoyed the constant interaction and incorporation into the community which she serves through her work. She has worked at the post office for three years, and enjoys every moment of her time. Always filled with a pleasant, cheerful voice and a beaming smile, Susan takes customer service to a completely different level.
"I love helping people and I believe that I always have a smile on my face because I have such great co-workers and work in such a nice community," Chacko said.
"Susan is one of the best employees I've ever had the opportunity to work with, and it is wonderful that she works here in Snoqualmie," said Snoqualmie Postmaster Bernie Weinkauf.
When asked what her secret is, Chacko takes a moment before answering.
"I have a wonderful family with two beautiful children, which makes me content with life. Above all I'm genuinely a happy person, so this affects my work a lot. And it is such a fun job that it is hard to get upset about anything," she said.
The aspect that Susan becomes enthralled with most about her job is meeting new people and interacting with them.
"I love talking to people and this makes them happy, and I benefit as well. It is nice to see people when they come in, because you become a part of their community, which is nice and very special."
Weinkauf explains that whatever her secret is, it is definitely working.
"I get comments all the time about how pleasant Susan is, and I believe that she is an asset to the community," he said.
