Dr. Shaw graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville with a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology.  She pursued her medical degree at the University of Florida and completed an internship in general surgery in 1996.  She completed her specialized training in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Florida’s Shands Hospital and VA Hospital in 2000.

Individual attention to each patient is a hallmark of Dr. Shaw’s practice.   “I have to measure my professional accomplishments by the impact I make on each patient one day at a time.  This is where I get my greatest satisfaction and why I do what I do.  It’s the difference you make in curing a patient you are face to face with in the office or the operating room.  That’s what makes me look forward to going to work every day, and how I have grown a successful ENT practice in the Atlanta area over the past 15 years.”

She is a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy, a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society and the Atlanta Medical Association.  She is a Board of Governors representative for the Georgia Society of Otolaryngology.  Dr. Shaw is a past president, member and previous officer for 4 years of the Atlanta Metro Educational Society of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.  She is currently the Chief of the Otolaryngology section at Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital and has served in this capacity for the past 4 years.  She serves on the hospital Ethics Review and Peer Review committees.  She has lectured for the Northside Hospital Speaker’s Bureau and the Children’s Hospital of Atlanta.  Dr. Shaw is a supporter of St. Joseph’s Mercy Care Clinic and the Mercy Care Foundation.

Dr. Shaw hails from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and has been married to Dr. Kurt Briesacher, a cardiac anesthesiologist at Emory St. Joseph’s hospital for over 20 years.  They share a love of the outdoors with their 3 children and their yellow Labrador retriever and are hiking, biking, running or paddling as often as possible in their free time.
