Meet our team

SPW is run by a group of brilliant, scrappy, harm reduction pirates who work together to make Arizona (and the world) a better place for people who use drugs. Our staff draw from a wide range of lived experiences and professional knowledge sets that informs our outreach, education, and advocacy efforts.

We’re also parents, science nerds, niche-music connoisseurs, yoga practitioners, makeup artists, cooks, collectors, DJs and so much more.
