Welcome Back Oksana!

Warm Beach Camp is so excited to welcome back Oksana Despins as our Marketing Specialist!

Oksana has a long history at Warm Beach Camp. She first experienced Warm Beach as a Family Camp attendee in 2009 and then as a Marketing Intern in 2010. Following her internship, she served as a graphic design contractor for Warm Beach Camp until 2013 when she came back to the Marketing Team fulltime until 2018. When life took her in a different direction for a while, she continued her relationship with the Camp doing work on a contract basis.

This Spring we are so happy to welcome her back as a Marketing Specialist. Oksana works remotely and lives with her husband, Chris and adorable son, Luka, in South Carolina. In her spare time, she loves going on little adventures exploring the South with her family.
