VIPcare is continuing to grow with skilled and talented provider additions. Meet one of the newest members of our health care team, Amanda Sledz, PA-C. Amanda has joined our St. Cloud neighborhood clinic and we are thrilled to have her.
Amanda is originally from Buffalo, NY, and is excited to have relocated to Central Florida. She attended Clarkson University for her undergraduate studies before attending Le Moyne College to earn her Physician Assistant degree.
Who is Amanda Sledz, PA-C?
Amanda attributes her own childhood experience of having kind and compassionate health providers to sparking her interest in the medical field.
At the young age of 10, Amanda was having to seek regular medical orthopedic care and was shocked that over the course of five years, she never had a female physician or an advanced practice provider, such as a nurse practitioner or physician assistant.
“While every healthcare person I came into contact with was wonderful and reassuring, it was actually the absence of female providers that really pushed me into medicine,” Amanda said.
And something else that stood out to Amanda during her medical care was how her providers took the time to actually listen to her. “It made me realize how much compassionate care and active listening can make a difference at any age,” she said.
This has led her to take a special interest in mental health and psychiatry. She’s even called “The Therapist” by family and friends.
Along with medicine, Amanda has a passion for history. So much so, she doubled majored in history with a focus on revolutionary history while in college. “It fascinates me what one small idea can become and take over,” she said.
When traveling, she makes sure she has at least one day set aside to explore and experience the local history.
When she isn’t practicing medicine or exploring local history, Amanda can be found either scouring vintage book shops looking for her next great find or spending time with her 3-year-old Black Mouth Cur rescue, Joni Mitchell (yes, like the singer).
