Meet Tracy

Why do you work with Dr. Tadje and his team?

Wife, mom, daughter, friend, and Licensed Practical Nurse for Team Tadje for over 5 years! These are just a few of the many roles I play.

My name is Tracy Tew. My story began in Fullerton, California. Warm sunny days and flip flops were some of my most favorite things, that is, until I met my husband who is an Idaho native. Although on most days you will still find me wearing flip flops, the ever-changing Idaho weather has definitely grown on me.

I attended Idaho State University for my nursing degree. And after working in corrections for 5 years after graduating, Orthopedics was a welcome change. My husband and I have been married for 14 years and we have twin 6-year-old boys and an 18-year-old daughter. We enjoy camping, spending time with family and traveling.

My position at Tadje Orthopaedics is multifaceted and keeps me on my toes. From patient care to insurance verification, I have grown to love what I do and the people I work with.

In addition to sports medicine, trauma and joint replacement, Dr. Tadje has an interest in international humanitarian work. He has traveled to Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Nepal and Thailand to participate in surgical missions. Dr. Tadje has shared this interest with my husband and I, and thanks in part to his generosity, we have recently been chosen to participate in the 2018 Trauma and Emergency Management Program in Kawkareik, Myanmar (previously Burma). This will be the first of what we hope to be many international trips. I believe this experience will not only help others, but it will help us to grow both personally and professionally.

Keep an eye out for my next blog all about our trip.
