2021-2022 Officers


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. Meet Hillcrest's 2023-2024 PTA Board of Directors. We are very excited to get out and meet the Hillcrest community




Hello! My name is Kim Basler and I am your 2023-24 Hillcrest President. My husband and I have been married for 12 years and we have two sons. Colt (10yrs) is in 5th grade for the 2023-24 school year and Hunter (8yrs) is in 3rd grade for the 2023-2024 school year.  My Husband Kyle works at Amazon and I work for a Real Estate Technology Company as a Sales Manager. In our “free” time we enjoy working out, camping and vacationing with our family. I am looking forward to helping create an environment where collaboration, creativity and excitement are top priority!


Vice President

Hi, my name is Keri Oxner and I am your Hillcrest Hawks PTA Vice president for the 2023-2024 school year. I am currently a stay at home mom to my amazing girls, Hadley and Piper. Hadley is in 3rd grade this year and Piper is in Kindergarten. Before becoming a sahm I was an elementary school teacher for 8 years. My husband, Ryan, and I have lived in Lake Stevens for the past 11 years and love it here. Ryan is a Dean of Students at an elementary school. Our family loves the outdoors, going for walks, and just being together. I look forward to being more involved at Hillcrest and helping how I can. I am excited for the year ahead.



Hi my name is Tammy and I am your 2023-2024 Interim Hillcrest PTA Secretary. I have an 11 year old daughter (Emma) and a 7 year old son (Cameron). I met my husband, Tom, 17 years ago while we were both living in Hawaii and finally decided to move to Lake Stevens in 2018. I grew up in British Columbia and now work part time as a Registered Nurse on the Acute Rehab Unit. I enjoy being outdoors, traveling and spending time with family, friends and our dogs. I also love bingewatching Netflix when I get carried away with a series. Being a member of the PTA has been a rewarding learning experience. With my oldest going to middle school this year, I hope to devote time at her new school. However, I am happy to continue to serve as the PTA secretary until the position gets filled.

Hi there, my name is Lisa Nilsen and I am your Treasurer for the 2023-2024 school year. Currently we have one child in Hillcrest, James in 2nd Grade, and a second son who will be joining Hillcrest Elementary. I am a local real estate agent and my husband, Jared, is a monitor tech at UW and together we love serving our community. My husband and I moved to Lake Stevens several years ago and one of the things that brought us here was the great school system.  I am so excited to be a part of this PTA and help our students, teachers, admin, and families have a great year.
