Staff Photo Spotlight: Rick Lybbert, PT, OCS

This month’s Staff Photo Spotlight is on Rick Lybbert, PT, OCS, Chief Operations Officer at our home office in Salt Lake City, Utah. Rick’s photo was chosen for the month of June in our 2020 calendar.

Rick’s awesome photo was taken at Last Chance Lakes located in Tooele County near the city of Vernon, Utah. The photo features his father, Dan Lybbert, as he waterskis on the crystal blue waters. Last Chance Lakes is where Mountain Land Charities holds their Adaptive Ski Events each summer. Therapists and staff from Mountain Land and Neuroworx teamed up to help skiers with disabilities get some laps on the lake using specialized adaptive water-skiing equipment.

Great photo, Rick! Thank you so much for submitting it to the Staff Photo Contest and congratulations on the well-deserved win.
