Meet Retina Technician Theresa Libby
Theresa currently works as a technician for Dr. Scott Steidl, one of our two vitreoretinal specialists. She works up office patients, preps patients for injections, and goes into the OR to assist in surgeries. She also assists both Dr. Steidl and Dr. Jackie Nguyen with retinal surgeries that have to be done off site at one of the hospitals in the area.
Theresa is currently a COA, or certified ophthalmic assistant. She has served on many committees while at EMG, including the Health and Safety Committee and the Quality Improvement Committee. She is also the Continuing Education Coordinator, so she is in charge of planning and coordinating seminars and workshops for ophthalmic assistants, technicians and nurses, and making sure employees comply with continuing education requirements. In addition to working full time here at EMG, she is also working on finishing her last year of nursing school at Southern Maine Community College.
