We are thrilled to announce the promotion of Nikki Hochschild, MBA, to chief operating officer (COO) at the American Association of Medical Assistants® (AAMA).

She joined the association 16 years ago, advancing from information technology manager to director of information technology and operations before her COO promotion. She has played a key role in implementing the AAMA’s first ever e-commerce integrated website, improving operational efficiencies, and coordinating our partnerships with health care organizations like the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable. In May 2020, she graduated with a Master of Business Administration from Northern Illinois University.

Thus, she is the perfect fit to assume oversight of the Executive Office structure, supervision, administration, and operations, including human resource functions.

“I’m passionate about AAMA and the profession it serves,” says COO Hochschild. “And I hope to continue to further the mission of the organization.”

We are excited about her new role at the association. Join us in applauding Nikki on this well-deserved promotion!
