Meet the WholeKids Pediatrics Staff
The WholeKids team is committed to caring for our patients and for ourselves. We laugh a lot and have a good time celebrating events in our lives with food, more food and comraderie. We lunch together when we can (food again!) and are honored to work together to improve the health and well being of our patients.

Adrienne Shesky, RN, PNP
Adrienne is a pediatric Nurse Practitioner. She joined WholeKids in November 2011. She is a two-time graduate of OSU with a B.S. in Biology in 2003 and a M.S. in Nursing in 2010 and became a certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in 2015.
Adrienne exercises so she can eat more food. Food is one of her passions. She likes to cook at home and loves to eat out at local restaurants. She remains active by playing indoor soccer, kayaking, biking, and riding in Pelotonia each year. Springtime is one of her favorite seasons because she loves to grow vegetable plants from seed and uses them in her garden. Adrienne also makes her own deodorant, lotion, lip balm, and most importantly, beer
The best part of her job is watching children and families grow and she feels honored to be a part of that growth. She loves teaching families how to improve their lifestyles so they can thrive.
