Presentation By Deniece Jozefiak, CMA (AAMA)
President Florida Society Of Medical Assistants

During my time as a member of FSMA, I have met wonderful members with whom I have made great friendships and memories. There is one member who has been a great friend and mentor since I have moved to Florida. If it were not for her and her chapter, the South West Chapter would not have gotten off the ground. Multiple meetings to her area and great chapter support from them got us up and running. I moved to Florida in 1996 and because of her and her chapter I was nominated as FSMA Secretary in 1997.

This member joined as a student and when she attended her first meeting she was asked if she would be a committee member of the Ways and Means Committee. She said yes and has been an active member since then. She has been FSMA President three times and went on to be an AAMA Trustee and AAMA President. She remained active with AAMA for years after and is still active in her chapter and FSMA.

She has worked close to 30 years as a CMA (AAMA) with the same provider. When the father retired, she stayed on and is still working for his son.

This member is active in her church and a proud grandmother.

One member said of her: “she is the epitome of leadership, loyalty, and dedication”. It is my honor as the FSMA President to present Kathryn Panagiotacos, CMA (AAMA) with LIFE MEMBERSHIP TO FSMA.


October 21-24, 2022   Myrtle Beach, SC.

“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”.


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