My name is Nicole Peterson.  I was born and raised in Elko. I have been married for 15 years and have two beautiful girls.

We love living in Elko raising our kids. On our days off we enjoy going to the family cabin at the Ruby Marshes, fishing, hunting, riding the Rzr and road trips.

I have been in the medical field since I graduated high school, over 15 years ago. I enjoy caring for the kids of all different age groups in our office.

After graduating from the University of Utah my wife and I relocated to the Elko area. My wife Jennifer and I have two children, Makell and Josh. Some of our most enjoyable time is spent with our 2 little grandchildren. When not with our family we enjoy camping and fishing, as well as traveling to warm destinations.

I have been a Firefighter/Paramedic for 15 years now and still spend time each month working for a community in Utah.  Throughout my time in EMS and most recently practicing in family medicine, I have truly enjoyed my time with the pediatric community. Seeing healthy happy smiling faces is what gets me to work each day.  I am excited to be a part of Slothower Pediatrics for many years to come.

Rachel Cluff - Medical Assistant

Rachel 2

I have a family of 4 & more. My husband and two children and pets. The kids keep us busy with sports. We enjoy spending time as a family adventuring in the outdoors and traveling.

After obtaining my first healthcare degree about 8 years ago, I was welcomed to a small family owned clinic in Lehi, UT. Not only did I learn everyday healthcare practices, but how compassion, kindness as selfless care positively impacts those you are serving. I wouldn’t be the Medical Assistant I am today without this experience, thanks Doc!

I am excited to be a part of the Slothower Team as a Medical Assistant, and being a vital part of your child’s healthcare.
