Todd Magee, CMA (AAMA) - Vice President, Communication Chair (CLICK HERE for description of NHSMA VP role.)
After a 20 year career in retail I chose to go back to college and study medical assisting. Upon graduating from Hesser College with my Associates Degree in 2007, I went to work for the Concord Hospital Family Health Center which I still proudly call home. I am now in my 15th year with that great organization. I am the lead medical assistant and also work as part of the education department within the hospital. Being an educator is a passion of mine and in my role I not only get to help educate other medical assistants within our organization but with my clinic also being part of the New Hampshire Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency program I get to work with resident physicians and contribute to their education as well. I have worked as an instructor at Mount Washington College helping to foster the new generation of medical assistants into our phenomenal profession and continue to do so as an Adjunct Professor for Manchester Community College. I have also obtained my Bachelors Degree in Health Science through Kaplan University.
I have been an active member with the NHSMA since 2018 and have taken on the roll of Concord NH Ambassador as well as the Communication Committee Chair. As ambassador I have continued the great education work started by Brian Stimpson, SR. CMA (AAMA) by coordinating Free CEU events at Concord Hospital. Also as the communication chair I created the current NHSMA website which won the Excell Award at the AAMA National Conference in 2019. I plan to continue my growth with NHSMA as we continue to advocate for our brethren throughout the state and beyond. On a personal note I am happily married to a fantastic woman who puts up with me and my furry feline son named George. I am also an avid movie buff so if you ever want to chat about the cinema I am your guy!

Janet Reynolds: Delegate to the AAMA National Conference
I am a AAMA CMA currently working in Berlin, NH for Androscoggin Valley Hospital Surgical Associates for a ENT/Allergy Provider whom I have worked for since 2013. I love my job and the people I work with. I have attended one National AAMA conference and it was the BEST experience I could have imagined. I am married and have two grown sons. I currently live in Groveton NH, but am originally from Utah and have lived in New York and Connecticut before getting married and moving to NH. I am currently serving as a member in the White Mountain Rotary Club, which I joined in 2018. We meet biweekly and do many volunteer projects and fundraisers to help out our communities and local high schools and colleges with scholarships and other contributions needed. I am looking to become a delegate/Alternate for the AAMA representing NH because I love the board and members that we have and want to help make our group grow and become stronger. As I stated before I attended last year and thoroughly enjoyed learning what and who makes the AAMA what it is today and want to learn more about the governing bodies and help guide it into the future . Please consider me a positive addition to the team and I will give you my all. I feel that I am upbeat, positive and eager to volunteer in any capacity that I am able to help.
WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR MORE BOARD MEMBERS, AMBASSADORS, AND VOLUNTEERS.
