Elizabeth Ackerson

Owner, Nurse Practitioner

I’m Elizabeth, a 35-year-old mother of three, wife, and nurse practitioner. My husband James and I were both born and raised in the Cedar Valley and now I have opened my business here too. Go Wahawks and Tigers!

I’ve been a practicing nurse for 12 years and a practicing nurse practitioner for 7 years. My background is in emergency medicine and urgent care, but I have loved the field of aesthetics for as long as I can remember. I have advanced training in aesthetic medicine and injectables as well.

I’ve trained in Neurotoxin and Dermal Fillers with organizations such as Aesthetic Medical Educators, Empire, and one with renowned injectors like Erika Barry and Galderma GAIN trainers Rachel Imperato. I’ve also studied different techniques including the Russian Tenting technique and Cannula methods.

My goal in creating Splendorè is to help every woman feel like her best self inside and out and realize she is worthy of self-care, peace, and relaxation.

I can’t wait to see you!

RN, BSN, Nurse Injector

My name is Ally Kuhlmann and I’m from Readlyn, IA. I graduated from Wapsie Valley High School in 2011 and then went on to Hawkeye and Allen College graduating with my BSN in 2015. I’m newly married and my husband and I love going to the river, golfing, and spending time with our family and friends.

I’ve been working as a labor and delivery and NICU nurse, but am SO excited for this next opportunity at Splendore! When I think of what my dream job would be it 100% would be anything related to skin care and aesthetics. I am so grateful to be here and can’t wait to get started. 🙂

I live in Gladbrook with my boyfriend and our dog Winston. I graduated from PCI Academy in February of 2023! I have always had a passion for all things beauty. Growing up, I was constantly trying out new skincare and makeup products. I decided to take this passion further and attend beauty school to become an esthetician. Helping others feel confident in their own skin is such a blessing! I am so excited to continue helping women embrace their natural beauty!
