Dr. Shauna Tordrup grew up in the small South Central Nebraska town of Doniphan. It was in high school that her deep interest in science and medicine, combined with her love of animals, sparked her “epiphany” to become a veterinarian. She graduated from Doniphan High School and went on to receive her Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from Nebraska Wesleyan University. From there, she went to veterinary school at Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated with her DVM in 2008. She spent 2008-2009 completing a Small Animal Medicine & Surgery Internship in Albuquerque, New Mexico where she gained invaluable experience working with various veterinary specialists as well as primary care emergency work.
In 2009, she joined the Fort Street Vet practice. “From the first time I set foot in the clinic, I knew that I could call Fort Street Veterinarian my work ‘home.’ Everyone was so inviting, the clinic was clean with a very welcoming atmosphere, and Dr. Busselman took time to get to know me as a person and not just as a veterinarian. I could tell how much the staff and clients respected him and I knew that I wanted to be a part of the Fort Street Vet family.
“Under Dr. Busselman’s leadership, we’ve built a very solid team here at Fort Street Vet. Each member contributes to the impact we have on a client and their experience at ‘the vet’ and I believe that it’s because of this team effort that we’re able to deliver high quality care and communications. It’s also why clients come back and refer others to us. Everyone here is dedicated to making each and every client and pet feel welcome and at home.”
Dr. Tordup is married to her best friend, Shawn, and their animal family members include Bernice (Pug Mix), Windsor (English Bulldog) and Doctor Dog (Black lab mix) who is Dr. Tordrup’s constant sidekick and companion. Dr. Tordrup is very close with her family, especially her mom and sister who have been her biggest supporters throughout her career journey. Her hobbies include Jazzercise, playing the piano, reading, Husker football and spending time with friends and family (especially her niece!).
