Employee Spotlight: Adam Liemer

 

Say hello to Adam Liemer…

Adam Leimer employee spotlightWhat is your job title?
Technical Director

How long have you worked for SEB?
10 years

How does your work help donation?
I help facilitate donation by preparing and managing a great team that handles everything from the recovery of the gift, laboratory evaluation for the safety of our recipients, and all of the way until we provide the gift for the surgeon to transplant.

Why is your work important to you?
The work we do is important to me for both professional and personal reasons. To see the great effect that this can have for people to regain or improve their sight and also to see the comfort it provides our donor families to know their loved ones are still living on through other people are the most satisfying aspects of what our team does at Southern Eye Bank. On a personal level, before my grandma passed away, she began to lose her vision. The only thing my grandma loved to do in her spare time was read, and I have never stopped thinking about how much a corneal transplant could have helped her. She was the most selfless person I have ever known, and I truly want to be able to help give that to our recipients, as I know how much it would have meant to her.
