Dawn Broad CMA (AAMA)- Treasurer
I arrived in the USA in 1998 from England. I started working part time at Exeter Hospital at the information desk and then decided I wanted closer patient contact and went to Hesser College in Portsmouth earning my my CMA (AAMA) in 2010. My externship was with Atlantic Urology, Exeter and I have happily employed there since. I first became involved with the NHSMA as a general volunteer, then secretary, and currently treasurer and education chair. I strongly
believe in education and belonging to a professional organization in order to raise the profession of medical assisting to the Gold Standard of the CMA (AAMA) credential.
Liane Tobin CMA (AAMA) - Secretary
My name is Liane Tobin and I have been a practicing Medical Assistant since 2007. My resume includes 3 years at Internal Medicine in Franklin and 6 years at Wound Healing Center for Concord Hospital to now at Riverbend as a Medical Assistant at Riverbend Mental Health in Concord still working for Concord Hospital Medical Group. This practice is a Primary Care practice imbedded in a mental health facility, were we provide medical support and practice to individuals with severe mental health conditions. I also volunteer for the Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) as well as Medical Reserve Core (MRC). I have been serving on the Board for the New Hampshire Society of Medical Assistants since 2016.
I am married going on seventeen years to the most supportive man I have ever met and have been blessed with helping to raise to wonderful buys that are now married and one is expecting in April. Needless to say this will make me a grandparent.
My reason for becoming a Medical Assistant is because I wanted to help; I experienced a medical crisis of my own that allowed me to see the best of and the worst that medical care has to offer. I decided that I wanted to make a difference for people in a meaningful way and I could not think of a better fit then becoming a Medical Assistant. We are the first point of contact in the medical setting and we can set the stage for a meaningful and effective visit for both the patient and provider. This is my why and I ask all of the medical assistants out there what is there why? My hope is that this will remind us that we are here because this is the position we chose and we can do are very best to make all medical interactions a better experience for all.
