I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and worked in event sales and planning for fifteen years. I have a Degree in Nursing with twelve years of senior living experience. I started working as Director of Nursing for Woodland Towers and was then promoted to Executive Director. I have found my most rewarding times in my career to be working with seniors ensuring that they get the best care.
I have been with my husband for 22 years, having raised two beautiful children, a son and daughter who have been the highlight of our lives.
Amanda Sheridan – Director of Nursing
I grew up in Pennsylvania and moved to Florida in 1998. My husband and I have two amazing kids that we are so proud of and enjoy spending as much time as we can together. I have always had a passion for taking care of others and knew early on that I wanted to make a difference by caring for those who need it most. It is with that ambition and my love for nursing that led me to find my calling in the geriatric field, where I can positively impact and advocate for the senior community. I received my nursing degree in 2013 and have worked in skilled nursing, memory care, and assisted living. I have been with Woodland Towers since 2017 and look forward to many more years to come!

Reggie Hoagland – Executive Chef
I have been the Chef at Woodland Towers in Deland, FL for the past year. Before making my way here I was Born & raised in upstate New York, I knew I wanted to do something around food. After moving out of New York and settling in North Carolina I found my way to multiple venues to hone my culinary skills before attending Guilford Technical Community College where I acquired my culinary degree in 2006.
During my 25 years’ experience I found that I loved working in retirement communities being able to care for the residents. It’s been a long time since any of my grandparents were around and working in communities allowed me to have gain a few more grandparents I was missing. From time to time I would get pulled away from that experience for another opportunity but would always make my way back to where I knew I belonged.

Originally from Central NY, I spent 20 years supporting individuals that sustained a Traumatic Brain Injuries and a large geriatric population remain in the community and their homes.

Working at Woodland Towers allows me to continue to advocate and provide support to our residents, while also having the pleasure of designing a Lifestyle program that enhances the lives of our residents and ensures that they have a purpose every day.
