Idesha R. has worked at Lifeblood for 10 years. She is the director of donor engagement.
“What I like most about working at Lifeblood is that everyday is different. I do various, different things with my job, but everything that I do is related to helping someone improve their quality of life or helping them go home to their family.
My favorite Lifeblood memory didn’t actually occur at Lifeblood. I had been working here for about a year when my mother had to have surgery at a hospital in Memphis. Two days after her surgery, I walked into her hospital room and there was a bag of blood hanging above her bed – she was receiving a unit and it had a Lifeblood label on it. And that was when I really realized the good work that we are doing and how important it was.”
