The CCUEF Trustees are responsible for oversight of funds and how they will be appropriated.

Meet the team!

Heidi Brashear – Chair

2020 – Present

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.

Philip Cilliers – Treasurer

2020 – Present

Philip initially began volunteering in the CCUSD community to meet other parents.  From the first day he found a welcoming place where he could use his skills to make a difference in the schools his children attended and the school district as a whole.  Through volunteering Philip has formed great friendships and helped make our already great district a little bit better.  Philip has two children in the district and has volunteered with them at HTES, STMS and now CSHS.

Philip and his wife Traci own a CPA firm in Scottsdale which keep them pretty busy in April and October.   Their kids joke that they knew form an early age when tax day was as it meant a family vacation!   The whole family enjoy traveling and going on adventures together.

Jessica Spencer – Trustee

2020 – Present

A mom of 2 students in the CCUSD district, Jessie has long been an engaged member of our educational community. She became involved in the Black Mountain Elementary PTO when her oldest was in Kindergarten, and is now beginning her 7th year as the PTO president at BMES. Serving in this capacity, it became increasingly evident just how much our schools rely on the support of our community to make our kids’ educational experience exceptional. This prompted her to get involved at a district-wide level as a trustee on the CCUEF Board. 

Outside of community involvement, Jessie has worked in the world of corporate talent acquisition for 15 years in industries ranging from sales/marketing to veterinary medicine  and public relations to culinary arts. She has a passion for developing businesses by helping them find their next rock-star employees. Her two kiddos keep their family running from place to place and you can almost always find them at the local baseball/softball, soccer or lacrosse fields, coaching and/or cheering on their favorite student athletes!
