Terry ShawI was born in Daviess County, KY. attended Sorgho Elementary, F.T. Burns Middle School, and graduated from Apollo High School class of “79”, (yes that’s 1979!). During those formative years a health condition held me out of participating in many sports I enjoyed. The next best thing was to start volunteering for anything related to those sports. Eventually I became a student athletic trainer watching over the athletes and tending to their injuries. I did so well that I earned a scholarship to the University of Southwestern Louisiana (University of Louisiana at Lafayette). I returned to Daviess County in 1982, for what I thought would be for good. I started volunteering as an athletic trainer at Owensboro Catholic High School, working at a local shoe store and going to night school at Brescia College. Soon I was offered a job at a local orthotics and prosthetics shop. Little did I know that accepting that job offer would be the beginning of a 29-year trek that I continue to enjoy every day. Upon graduation from Brescia College, I married my wife Kristina, and decided to further my knowledge of prosthetic and orthotics. In 1990, I was accepted into the Prosthetic Certification Course at Northwestern University in Chicago. Once completed, I became an ABC Certified Prosthetist in 1992 and a BOC certified Orthotist/Prosthetist in 1998. In 2000 I was the first practitioner in Kentucky to earn Fellowship status from the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists. I have maintained that Fellowship distinction for 12 years. Following two years in Memphis, TN working for Hanger Orthopedic group (1994-96) I returned to Owensboro and Daviess County to open Shaw’s Prosthetics Plus in 1996. I was elected to the Kentucky Orthotic and Prosthetic Association in 1997 and ended my service with them in 2001. I have been a member of many different local organizations over the past 16 years, from Owensboro Breakfast Rotary Club (President 2003-2004), Daviess County Diabetes Coalition (President 2002-2004), The Alma Randolph Charitable Foundation Board of Directors, to serving on the board of the PrimeCare Ancillary Care Group, a national network of independent orthotic and prosthetic facilities, from 2000-2009. Kristina and I have 3 children: Davin, Diana and Dalton. My favorite times are spent with my wife and kids: it may be a weekend of soccer from Owensboro to an out-of-town tournament, it may be in the woods on a hunt with my youngest or grilling out in the backyard after Mass on a Sunday afternoon with the in-laws and some out-laws sharing food and conversation. In addition to patient care and family, my interests are football, soccer, basketball, hunting, fishing, cooking and photography.
