Dr. Shriwise obtained her undergraduate degree in Zoology at UW-Madison before taking a year off to live in California and work with sea otters at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. After confirming her love for the field of animal care, she returned to get her veterinary degree through UW-Madison. She then completed a one-year rotating internship at NC-State (where she earned the “Intern of the Year” award), and came back to the UW-Madison for her three-year small animal surgical residency (where in her final year she also earned the “Resident of the Year” award)!
Since finishing residency in 2019, Dr. Shriwise has worked at MedVet Chicago, a large specialty center in Chicago proper. There she enjoyed a busy surgical practice including emergency, routine, and rare procedures. After having a baby in 2021, she and her family decided to relocate back to Madison to be close to family. She started at MVS in October 2022 and is looking forward to serving all the animals and people of her hometown.
When not doing surgery, Dr. Shriwise enjoys playing Ultimate frisbee, climbing, doing pottery, DIYing her house, and spending time with her family–including a 15-year-old Rottweiler mix named Monk.
