General Accounting, Cashier
I'm from Bosnia originally, and came to Idaho in 1998 so my son could have a better education. My sister was living in Boston and had children around the same age. She kept pestering me to move up to the city, so one day we packed up and moved here. After taking some accounting classes and working temp accounting jobs, I found my way to Dana-Farber.
I run the cashier's booth in the Dana lobby. I handle cab vouchers, T-pass distribution, and process petty cash reimbursements and miscellaneous patient payments.
In the past six years I've seen lots of people and I tend to remember them once they come by a few times. It's interesting to meet and interact with so many people. I didn't speak English when I came to the United States, and when I came to Dana-Farber, I took the English as a Second Language class here. Since I learned, I haven't stopped talking.
Seeing our young patients. I tear up when I see the children.
Where I grew up, you would never say "I" did this or that. You don't promote yourself to people for recognition. I don't think I'll ever make that cultural adjustment.
I like to walk and swim. I live in Revere and go to the beach often – even in the winter. I enjoy being near the water.
