Nicole Campon, CRPS-A
CERTIFIED RECOVERY PEER SPECIALIST
Nicole is a woman in sustained recovery. She began her formal academic photography study in New York at the Fashion Institute of Technology. While an undergrad fine arts student, she started at the newspaper W27, which led to work at Warner Bros, A&E, BBC, and various networks and affiliates. Nicole also worked as a wardrobe stylist for many celebrities' music videos and feature film work. She developed a heroin habit at age 30 and found recovery as an adult through H&I (hospitals and institutions). After struggling for years to obtain complete abstinence, she found her path to recovery with the help of medication assistance. She was happy to photograph the first recovery symposium in the Volusia County area, which led to working and volunteering for Flagler Opens Arms Recovery and the Volusia Recovery Alliance. Through that work, she became very passionate about shattering the stigmas within and outside the recovery community. In 2022, Nicole became a Provisional Certified Peer Support Specialist, and she hopes to have her national certification soon. She is pursuing a bachelor's degree in business at Daytona State.
