Short Bio: I am an operator in Weipa with Rio Tinto. As a shift worker, sleep has become more of a priority as I have experienced how it has affected my personal life, my health, my mindset. I have launched an online store, Sweet Siesta, stocking sleep eye masks (https://www.facebook.com/sweetsiesta/). The aim of my business is to raise awareness around sleep wellness. I aim to focus on mining communities as the rosters can be quite disruptive to your sleep practices.
