We would like to thank everyone that played a part in the 2018-2019 PTA Board. We appreciate the countless volunteer hours that were put in to ensure a fun experience for our kids and staff at Hillcrest Elementary.
We wish you all the best and thank you for your service.
Hillcrest Elementary PTA Officers
The Washington State PTA bylaws and the Hillcrest Elementary PTA standing rules state that the Executive Team (elected officers, also known as Board of Directors) of PTA shall consist of a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Two or more people may hold any elected position jointly, and each position is elected by the general membership.
Hillcrest’s 2019-2020 PTA Board of Directors has several co-positions, so that means you’ll be seeing a lot of new faces this year. The majority of our officers are completely new to PTA and are very excited to get out and meet the Hillcrest community. If you spot any of our PTA officers out and about, don’t be afraid to say hi.
Below we have added a brief bio of the new team so that you can meet everyone. We have even created a PTA Officer Role page that explains each position - just in case you ever wondered what we do, or if you are interested in volunteering for one of the positions in the future.
Hello! My name is Brandi and I am your 2019-2020 Hillcrest PTA Co-President. My husband and I have been married for 11 years and we have an 8 year old son. We have lived in Lake Stevens since 2015 and recently joined the Hillcrest family in November of 2018 after transferring from a local private school. The change to Hillcrest has been a great experience for our family and we are excited to help contribute to the community through this opportunity to volunteer for the PTA. My husband is a tenured Mechanic at Boeing and I work full-time in Veterinary Medicine & Equipment Distribution Sales. In our free time we enjoy camping, boating, hiking, and traveling. My goal is to support the building of an inclusive PTA this next school year where all Hillcrest families feel welcome and excited to actively participate and build up this great community.

Social Media Manager
Hi, I’m Christina. I will be serving as the newly created role of Social Media Manager. I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. In 2012, my husband, Francis, was recruited by Boeing, and we relocated to beautiful Lake Stevens. I am a Graphic Designer/Web Developer and have been blessed to be able to work from home for the past few years. My daughter, Andreya, is a 1st Grader at Hillcrest Elementary, and my son, Francis Jr., will be a Kindergartener. Since both of my children will be in school this year, I'd like to volunteer in their classrooms and becoming more active in the PTA. In my free time, I love to run, garden, create art, and spend time with family and friends. I am super excited to work on the Hillcrest's new PTA website, which we plan to launch in September 2019, and I hope to spread more social awareness of the wonderful things the PTA does. I'd love for more people to say, “Hey, that’s pretty cool - I want to be a part of the PTA too - Sign me up!”
