The CCUEF Foundation is governed and administered by an independent Board of Trustees. As such, the Trustees are responsible for oversight of funds and how they will be appropriated.
After attending the inaugural Rock the District show, Heidi knew there was something special about the event and the community. She continued to attend the event annually as well as other events hosted by CCUEF which further strengthened her interest in being part of such an amazing organization that gives back to the teachers. With 2 daughters in the CCUSD District who are actively involved in volunteering and school activities, joining the team was an obvious fit.
Heidi is a corporate marketer who enjoys the creativity and gratification that comes with volunteering for different organizations. She has worked in the Digital Marketing arena for over 20 years, primarily focusing on the hospitality industry. While her job requires her to travel frequently, her passion is for her family, enjoying the outdoors and volunteering.
