HR and Operations Manager

Phoenix

Marylin Arevalo, MPA, MSW was born & raised in Yuma, AZ. She was drawn to SPW after working in various areas of social work where she witnessed how people who use drugs are systemically stigmatized by those who should be helping them. Utilizing her background in social work, program operations, data analysis, & the hiring process, her passion is to put the “human” back into human resources to ensure staff serving underserved populations are supported in the best way possible. When she is not at SPW, she enjoys practicing self-care by reading, gardening, cooking, spending time outdoors, & exercising.
