“I was fascinated by how reliable, safe, and efficient our operations are,” Dina recalls. “In 2016, I began studying civil engineering while I was still working onboard, and that gave me an excellent background in analytical thinking and problem-solving. In 2021, I accepted the challenge to work as Terminal Operations Manager. In Barcarena, I take care of the operations at our LNG terminal, while in Santa Catarina, I’m in charge of the offshore operations. Since the terminals are in development, I follow the project with an operational perspective, handling the ship-to-shore interface and implementing the operations. I’m looking forward to starting our Brazilian terminal operations and continuously keeping them running with excellence.”
Dina’s ambitious aspirations and relentless quest for knowledge were nurtured by her parents, whom she credits for giving her the best examples of integrity, hard work, and kindness.
“I come from a simple family, and when I was 14, I was accepted into an educational program through a non-profit, private institution that provided a high-level education and the opportunity to develop my soft skills,” she explains. “My life was literally changed through education. When I look back, I see how that shaped me and gave me the possibility to dream bigger.”
