Tamya served as the first Legislative Counsel for the affiliate. She graduated with an undergrad degree from Oklahoma State University and went on to continue her education at Oklahoma City University School of Law. She joins us from Planned Parenthood Great Plains where she served as Regional Director of Public Policy and Organizing, overseeing the Public Affairs departments in Oklahoma and Arkansas.
Tamya is committed to civil rights and civil liberties. She has traveled across the state and country speaking directly to communities on issues that impact their daily lives, as well as presenting on numerous panels covering a variety of topics, including race equity. Her dedication to the work is best summarized through her favorite Alice Walker quote, “Activism is my rent to live on this planet.”
