Lindsay Nemeyer

In Lindsay's teenage years growing up in Kent, she broke her ankle, which began her addiction to opiates. After struggling with addiction for most of her life, Lindsay again found herself in trouble with the law. Only this time, she ended up in Federal prison, where she was given the opportunity to participate in Federal DREAM court (Drug Re-Entry Alternative Model.) With the help of several people in the US court system and her family, she completely changed her life and graduated from DREAM court in May 2019, where she found her love of helping others find their way to recovery. Now she uses her personal experience to walk with others into their definition of recovery; being a certified peer counselor has allowed her to share her strength & hope and lead by example.

James Dixon

James was born and built in Washington. Raised by a single mother most of his childhood, he’s always
had to adapt. Without knowing who he was, he left for college and searched for validity through people
he didn’t know and an identity through a church, that believed in everything he didn’t. Living in solitude
and starting to hate himself, his anxiety grew fangs and became a deep depression, pushing him to self-
harm. James moved to Tacoma in 2015 and it was only through finding a community of peers that he
was able to realign and define who he was and what he stood for.

Outreach Navigator

Daniel Porro

Daniel Porro was born and raised on Vashon Island, Washington. He was introduced to marijuana and alcohol at a young age, at which his battles with addiction began. At 23, he was the driver in a drunk-driving accident in which his vehicle struck a telephone pole at nearly 90 mph and required the jaws of life and an airlift from Vashon to Harborview. The subsequent surgery from this incident was his first introduction to opiates, and his addiction continued to progress for the next 11 years. Unable to hold a job due to his addiction, Daniel turned to criminal activity, which landed him in the King County Drug Court program.

 

Daniel started in-patient treatment on July 22, 2021, and has been clean ever since. He graduated from the King County Drug Court Program and has found a desire in himself to support other people and to continue learning and working on his own recovery. 12-step, therapy, family, peer support, and doing his best at remaining willing are essential pieces of his recovery journey. He enjoys gardening, learning, connecting with nature, his dog, and many other new things he’s been able to discover since beginning recovery.

Aaron Coito-Poile

After struggling with addiction for 10+ years, Aaron attended his first SOS meeting in 2016 and soon after started volunteering at SASG (now Peer Seattle). In 2022, with six years of volunteering under his belt and having kicked drugs in 2020, Aaron joined the staff of Peer WA as a Recovery Navigator with the newly formed Recovery Navigator Program of King County. Aaron hopes to use his lived experiences with drug addiction, homelessness, anxiety, and living within the LGBTQ+ community to help others discover what recovery looks like for them.

Triana O'Cain

Triana's life started in Seattle, raised in the Central District. Coming up as a teenager there and then was very challenging. Through therapy, she was able to overcome her multiple childhood traumas. She then went to school for computer science and the culinary arts (a passion of hers). Triana has worked at the Department of Social and Health Services, assisting clients with joblessness referrals and housing placement. She is grateful to be here at RNP to expand her journey.
