Ybarra's name was chosen from a drawing that included 24 other finalists from around the country. By working with Life is Good (https://www.lifeisgood.com/
Like many who were nominated, Ybarra has worked tirelessly tending to patients diagnosed with the coronavirus disease. Before the pandemic spread, she dedicated over 20 years volunteering her medical skills around the country and the world assisting natural disaster victims in southern United States, Haiti and Puerto Rico. She also fulfilled needs in Mexico and South America. Ybarra recently finished work to become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and is completing her doctorate degree.
Ybarra was one among a total of 156 outstanding nominations in Austin Adventures' Essential Service Providers contest. All of these contenders, including the top 24 nominees, will receive a gift certificate for a $500 discount on a future Austin Adventures trip. This opportunity to recognize brave individuals was created by Austin Adventures in early June 2020 while the company rolled out many other consumer-focused initiatives amidst the pandemic.
"We wanted to recognize those selfless individuals who never rested or who didn't have the luxury of sheltering in place," said Austin. "America's essential workers have and will continue to sacrifice their health and their family time for the rest of us. This is our way of saying thank you."
