Nicol Peterson
Rodan + Fields Independent Consultant

When she least expected it Nicol became a skincare consultant and mompreneur.

As a therapist, expert witness, child custody evaluator, non-profit director, and a mom, she had more than enough on her plate; but then Rodan & Fields (a company started by the 2 amazing female doctors who started "Proactive") showed up.

Nicol decided to not worry about what people would think and followed her heart and her desire for flexibility, good skin, and a positive experience. And guess what, it's working. Nicol can be reached at
