Amy Shideler, is a 1998 graduate of Bowling Green State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Social Work. Her initial clinical experiences in long term care revealed marginalized populations with multiple psychosocial factors effecting physical health. In 2006, her interest in the effects of untreated, undertreated mental health and substance abuse propelled her to pursue a Master’s degree in Social Work at the University of Toledo. She had a successful career in inpatient behavioral health and inpatient hospital case management. Amy is an Ohio Licensed Independent Social Worker with a Supervision designation, and has her CCM Certification.
In the spring of 2016, she transitioned to a leadership role at the Cleveland Clinic where she assembled a team of master’s trained social workers supporting ambulatory physician practices. The program goal, empower patients and care partners to become better managers of their self-care, is facilitated through telephonic outreach. The social work team is collaborative, and seeks to engage care coordinators, physicians and community stakeholders for the management of populations.
