Meet Melissa Hamer - The I-Swiped-Right Wife.

Quirky, Brave and Honest.

Want to get to know our authors? We got chu'.

Here is a cheeky interview about their thoughts on the FIFO lifestyle.

It takes two of you to keep moving forward

What’s a fun fact about you : I love everything retro! Cars, Clothes, Hair, Music! Take me back to the days of Grease! The Pin Up/Rockabilly life!

What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning : Turn off my alarm, stretch and see what happened in the 2 hours ahead of time (Melbourne) before I've woken

When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to make yourself feel better : Turn up the music, Usually something heavy and full of some “naughty words” and scream it out while driving

What are you known for in your circle of friends : High Energy, my goofy laugh, always being there for them with support, smiles and hugs

Would you rather have more time or more money : More time, could equate to more money haha. Definitely time! Was so funny as a kid, listening to my parents tell me that as you get older time gets quicker and I thought that this was one of the silliest things I had ever heard.. But now here I am living that very promise (Thanks mum & dad)

If your life was a movie, what would it be called : Expect the unexpected

What would your advice be to your child wanting to enter the FIFO lifestyle : Support their decision, but discuss some pros/cons (I'm a list lady) and what they are working towards. It’s their life, they need to learn their own wins and losses

Who would win in an arm wrestle? A dump truck driver or a boiler maker : Neither. I would win! Haha

Describe the FIFO industry in one word : Strengthening
