Who We Are

KYOSA is the proud state affiliate for the National Afterschool Association!

KYOSA Staff

  • Tamsyn Oakes

    Director

    Tamsyn is an educator with more than 15 years of experience in out-of-school time programming.  When she’s not working to help providers implement high-quality afterschool and summer programs, you can find her cheering on her beloved Kentucky Wildcats and Columbus Blue Jackets, baking something with butter in it, or reading.

  • Tonya Adams

    Operations Coordinator

    Tonya has spent the last 20 years focusing on operational excellence, primarily in the non-profit arena.  When she’s not establishing processes or designing KYOSA materials, you can find her spending time with her border collies or working in her flower beds.
