Dr. Shelnutt and his wife Ellen met as first year medical students. They were married in 1991 and continued to study medicine together until 1994 when they both graduated from the Medical College of Georgia. 

They have gone on to raise a family of five here in Athens, GA. They love this town, especially its vibrant, college atmosphere and all the talented, generous people who make it feel like home. 

The doctors Shelnutt helped to found Mercy Health Center, an organization which offers free medical services to those in need in the Athens community. In recent years, Ellen has homeschooled their five children and helped to found Learning Grove, which provides resources, teaching and support to homeschoolers. 

The Shelnutt family attends Athens Church, where they partner in leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Their firstborn daughter Anna was recently married and is studying occupational therapy. The Shelnutt's son Jonathan enjoys reading, writing and acting, Claire loves horseback riding and baking, Camille enjoys skiing, and their youngest, Hope, likes to paint.
