DNIA Employee Spotlight


This month, we are turning the spotlight onto our accounting guru, Ruby Bucio. She keeps our wheels turning and makes sure to remind us of our monthly goals with fun infographics and Power Point Presentations. She is a woman of many talents who has a big heart, which you will discover in her interview. We are thankful for her valuable work and input and love having her on our team.

 

What was your favorite vacation? 

I had an amazing time in Southeast Asia. Specifically, the beaches of Bali were amazing and then volunteering at an English school for young kids in Jogja, Indonesia. I lived with the locals in a small village about 30 minutes outside of the main city. It was great to disconnect from the world, technology, and really get to know the locals and their customs.

What motivates you in life? 

My biggest motivation is my mother. She immigrated to the U.S. before I was born and worked 2 jobs in a factory to support my older siblings. She has always worked hard to make a better life for us and never complained or made any excuses. My mom is kind-hearted and always wants to give to others. Looking back at all the sacrifices she made in life, such as leaving her whole life, her sick mother, and her entire culture, is the ultimate motivation for me to always push myself to do better in life. Nothing she did was in vain as she showed me to fight for what I want.

What do you like the best in insurance?
Working in accounting for insurance is unique considering there are many rules and regulations special to the insurance industry. There is not an easy double entry bookkeeping system like most industries, and having to learn and create a whole new process is challenging but rewarding.

What’s your proudest accomplishment? 

My proudest accomplishment is losing 80lbs, and I did it by changing my lifestyle, eating healthier, and intensive workouts.

What is your favorite book or the last book you read? 

My favorite book is The Giver. Dystopian novels have always been my favorite, based on how today’s society can let the leaders run our world into the ground and we, as a brainwashed culture, just allow it to happen. The aftermath is brutal, so it’s a reminder that we must stand and fight for what is right in the world.

What do you like to do when you are not working? any special hobbies? 

I like reading, drawing mandalas, and working out. I used to be a personal trainer and won a contest for holding the longest plank at a fitness competition (9 minutes, not too shabby!!!).

 

Next time you call our accounting department, don’t forget to ask Ruby to share some amazing stories about her volunteer work in Southeast Asia.
