Ian has witnessed and experienced the disparities and injustice related to drug policy throughout his life. Inspired to help others caught in the system, Ian began his career in case management/peer support at a local SUD treatment center in 2012, and he subsequently held various positions in behavioral health across the state. From there, he has worked in multiple places in behavioral health. In 2016, Ian branched out into working with adolescents in residential treatment centers and outpatient settings. After discovering SPW in 2017, Ian became passionate about our mission and successfully implemented harm reduction policies at several agencies throughout Arizona, utilizing the knowledge and resources gained from SPW. Ian is excited to continue his mission of effecting positive change for those affected by drug policy in Arizona.
