Tracey McShane Bio
Tracey Lynn Stewart, née McShane, is a former veterinary technician, graphic designer, and animal rights activist from the United States.
She is best known as the wife of Jon Stewart, a comedian, author, political commentator, and television host.
Tracey is a native of Pennsylvania who attended California College of Arts and Crafts and Drexel University before embarking on a career as a graphic designer.
She returned to school to pursue a degree in veterinary science after her husband was hired as the host of ‘The Daily Show.’ She founded ‘Moomah the Magazine’ and is the Portrait Project’s vice president.
Tracey works closely with Farm Sanctuary, an animal protection organization, and she and her husband have purchased a farm in New Jersey to provide a shelter for rescued farm animals.
In 2015, she published the nonfiction book ‘Do Unto Animals: A Friendly Guide to How Animals Live, and How We Can Make Their Lives Better.’
Tracey was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the United States of America, on August 6, 1967. She attended California College of Arts and Crafts in the mid-1990s.
She later enrolled in a graphic design class at Drexel University. According to some reports, she also took a business class at Drexel.
She started working as a graphics designer after finishing her course. Tracey resumed her studies to become a veterinarian after Stewart became the new host of Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show.’
She had previously worked in a variety of capacities in a variety of settings, but none had provided her with the sense of fulfillment she desired.
Net Worth, Occupation
Tracey worked as a graphic designer for a long time. She also worked at a few other places over the years. She worked at the Bronx Zoo after receiving her veterinary science degree before launching ‘Moomah the Magazine.’
It began as Moomah Café, a gathering place for families in lower Manhattan. Its front portion served as a café, while the back portion served as a children’s enrichment center.
The hub was eventually closed down, but its spirit lives on in the form of ‘Moomah the Magazine.’
Tracey and her family have recently become involved with Farm Sanctuary.
Farm Sanctuary has named two rescued sheep after Tracey and Stewart to show their gratitude for their help. The family spent $4 million on a farm in New Jersey that houses many rescued farm animals.
Tracey’s children’s book, ‘Do Unto Animals: A Friendly Guide to How Animals Live, and How We Can Make Their Lives Better,’ was published by Artisan on October 20, 2015.
The book has received positive reviews from critics and contains over 300 color illustrations by artist Lisel Ashlock. The proceeds from this book will all go to Farm Sanctuary.
Tracey is estimated to have a net worth of $10.8 million dollars at present.
She has accumulated her net worth with the versatility she has shown in each field she has worked in.
