Meet the Team

Kimberly Shaffner, APNP

I am an Advanced Practice Nurse Provider that is the founder and owner of Elemental Skin & Body Medical Aesthetics. I started my career in healthcare in 2002 working in a local family medical office. I enrolled in nursing school and obtained my Associates Degree in Nursing while volunteering as an EMT/Firefighter with Elkhorn Area Fire Department. My nursing career began in the Emergency Department in Woodstock, Illinois where I continued my education, obtaining my Bachelor’s Degree in Science and Nursing. In changing location of employment to Mercy Walworth Medical Center in Lake Geneva, I continued in the Emergency Department where I continue to work today. I obtained my Master of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner and obtained Board Certification as an Advanced Practice Nurse Prescriber in 2017. It was in November of 2018, I began to look at my future to do what I really enjoy and developed a plan to obtain certifications in Aesthetic Injectables. These certifications and the skills that I have learned have allowed me to guide my clients in obtaining their desired beauty and overall skin health.

On a personal level, I am local to Walworth County since 1998 and am a proud mom to four amazing, energetic boys. I enjoy running, cycling, activities outdoors and on the water, and time with friends and family. I find great satisfaction in guiding and assisting clients to enjoy keeping their skin healthy, youthful and a reflection of who they are.
