Great Lakes Veterinary Clinic is proud to announce the addition of Dr. Traci Shaw. Dr. Shaw comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience and will be a valuable asset to our team. So please join us in welcoming Dr. Shaw to the Great Lakes team starting Monday, October 3, 2016.
Dr. Shaw was born and raised in a small town outside Omaha, Nebraska. Growing up, Dr. Shaw always had a passion and love for animals and knew at an early age she wanted to be a veterinarian. Dr. Shaw attended college at The University of Kansas where she received her Bachelor's degree in Biology. She then received her Degree of Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State University in 2009. Dr. Shaw and her husband then moved to Florida for a year where she completed a small animal rotating internship. Following that, they decided to move back to the Fox Valley where her husband is from to focus on starting their own family. Dr. Shaw worked as a small animal emergency and critical care doctor for several years prior to transitioning to general practice. While Dr. Shaw enjoys emergency medicine, she loves general practice and being able to make strong connections with the patients and clients.
When Dr. Shaw has spare time with two little ones, she enjoys being active and loves running, biking and going to parks with her family. Her family includes husband Aaron, daughter's Ava and Ellie. Her furry kids include Sammie (Pit Bull Mix), Minnie (calico), Lola (DSH) and Rae (Blind kitty).
