Introducing Rebeca Ibarra!
"I'm a huge supporter of Hardee and Highlands Counties and volunteer with organizations within those counties when possible."
I sat down with one of our Community Health Workers, Rebecca Ibarra, to learn more about her and how she got involved with the program. Check it out below!
Tatiana: How did you learn about the HDCHW program?
Rebecca: I was recruited by my long-time friend and co-worker, Wendy!
T: What seemed appealing about the position or program? Why did you decide to get involved?
R: I like learning and helping others learn.
T: Have you worked with any other nonprofits before? If so, what were they? How were you involved?
R: I have previously worked in Federal Agencies and education-based non-profits.
T: Are there any other organizations you are involved in within your community?
R: I am an active volunteer of many Hardee and Highlands County organizations.
T: What is your favorite part about your job?
R: My favorite part is finding new resources to bring into my community.
T: What has been the most surprising about your job or the program?
R: The lack of resources in my community.
T: Are there any current or upcoming volunteer or donor opportunities?
R: There are always opportunities to help and donate.
T: What's one local issue you think deserves more attention?
R: Transportation! Transportation is the number one issue in Rural Florida, followed by lack of internet access.
