Iíve been in Port Hedland for four and half years, I work with BHP Billiton as Superintendent of Monthly Scheduling, which involves scheduling the number of rakes per iron ore mine, per day, and the number of ships on each of the ship loaders.
I used to work for the Government in Brazil, I was a Project Officer working on public programs. My husband got a position in Port Hedland with BHP Billiton as an Electrical Engineer, he came as part of an international graduate program so I came with him.
I had low expectations before I came to Port Hedland, but I really liked it, itís a great community, you have great people, a great lifestyle, good things to do and I enjoy going to the beach, and kite surfing. Despite missing my family, Iím really happy here, the life we have is really good, so I donít see myself going back to Brazil.
