A MESSAGE FROM OUR FSMA PRESIDENT

Deniece Jozefiak, CMA (AAMA)

“Teamwork means that we share a common idea and embrace a common goal. Regardless of our differences, we strive shoul­der to shoulder, confident in one another’s faith, trust and commitment. In the end teamwork, can be summed up in five short words … ” we believe in each other”.

I believe in each and every member of FSMA. To serve as your president will be truly a great honor and privilege. I welcome the challenge during these trying times.

Continue to watch for e-blasts regarding free zoom cue’s from FSMA, Brevard and the Southwest chapter. Other states/chapters are offering them as well. Look on the AAMA website.

“This is a beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good . What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind. Let it be something good”.

FSMA

Committed to supporting a positive awareness of medical assisting and the recognition of the FSMA as its representative.
