Meet ASPMA President Tressea R. Harvey, PMAC



Hello…My name is Tressea R. Harvey, PMAC and I am the new ASPMA President for the 2013-2014 Term. I have been a member of the ASPMA since 2008 and have served on the Board since 2009.  I am currently the Practice Manager at Foot First Podiatry NA for Dr. Zahid A. Ladha.  The practice I have worked for the past 19 years is located in New Albany, Indiana which is approximately 15 minutes North of Louisville, Kentucky.

When I first started in podiatry I was a Medical Assistant and since then I have had both the privilege and honor to work in many other areas of Podiatry.  I continue to actively clinically assist as well as administrate a successful multi location Clinic. My professional interests include Medical Assisting, Practice Management, Marketing and Development. In addition to Practice Management, I enjoy patient care and clinical responsibilities. I greatly value patient outcomes and have obtained certification in both Diagnostic Ultrasound and Podiatric Radiology.

I am passionate about learning, both continuing my professional education as well as imparting knowledge to others. I am a member of the Indiana Podiatric Medical Assistants Association and also currently serving as Continuing Education Co-Chair. I also enjoy lecturing to various Podiatric Medical Assistants throughout the country. This endeavor has afforded me the opportunity to meet and interact with a variety of PMAC’s, DPMs, Allied Health Professionals, Vendors as well as Administrators. Through this I have gained a better understanding of my chosen profession in addition to developing lasting friendships.

For this upcoming year I would like to build upon the strong foundation our retiring President, Nancy E. Diaz, PMAC has set fourth for our Association. We have big shoes to fill! However with your cooperation I am certain we can achieve great things. I would like to incorporate more DPM participation, increase our Membership, increase Membership involvement and Promote the intrinsic value and benefit of the ASPMA.

I look forward to serving as your new President. I would love to hear from you with any ideas or concerns you may have. Please feel free to email me

Message from the ASPMA President



Dear New Member,

On behalf of the entire ASPMA Board and Society I would like to personally welcome you to our Membership. You have taken an exciting step towards enhancing both your professional career and personal growth. The ASPMA affords you the opportunity to expand your Podiatric and Medical knowledge base as well as interact with colleagues in both formal and informal settings. Through the ASPMA you will forge friendships and identify mentors through whom you will be able to share, learn and interact.

This year is an exciting year for the ASPMA. On the heels of the APMA’s 100 year Anniversary, the ASPMA began an innovative endeavor. In order to reach more of our assistants throughout the world, the ASPMA developed and earlier this year implemented, On Line Clinical Exam to earn Certification. This is a first for the ASPMA and currently we are working on developing an Administration On Line Exam to earn Certification. We anticipate this to be in place by the end of this year.

The ASPMA’s commitment to education is strongly evident in our involvement with the various State Societies and APMA Meetings. This year the ASPMA has again help to organize, promote and deliver The Assistance Programs at New York State in NYC, The Midwest in Chicago, Region III in Atlantic City, The APMA National in Las Vegas and Indiana State Meeting in Indianapolis. Additionally the ASPMA has administered the Certifying exam at other State Meetings throughout the country.

The ASPMA has a variety of opportunities for all to be involved. There are many committees, Board Member positions and Voluntary options that always need an extra helping hand. I invite you to contribute to our Journal. Another highly recommended option to understand the inner workings of the ASPMA is the Internship Program. I whole heartedly encourage ALL of our membership to be involved. Together we can achieve great success and continue the legacy of the ASPMA.

We are very proud of our Journal publication and social networking….you can find us on our Website, Facebook, Twitter and our Journal. I highly encourage you to check us out on Facebook, and invite you follow us on Twitter.

I look forward to serving as your President. I would love to hear from you with any ideas or concerns you may have. Please feel free to email me at
