Board

Board President - Angela Valdivieso
 
Angela Valdivieso-Rangel is originally from Colombia, moving to Georgia in 2003 and to Wicks Lake in May 2015.
 
Angela has been serving the HOA board since 2017, taking over as the President this year. For the past three years, she has also led the Garden Club, and helped oversee clubhouse rentals and the opening of the pool during the summer months.
 
She also created the Meditation group that meets the last Thursday of the month at the clubhouse.

Angela enjoys traveling, cooking and gardening. 
Vice President - Melissa O'Shea
 
Melissa and her family - husband Anthony and daughter Harriet have lived in Wicks Lake and been HOA members since fall of 2016. Melissa joined the board in 2018, taking over as Vice President in 2021. She also serves as the Social Chair, planning and organizing neighborhood events like wine mixers, kids parties, and holiday celebrations. 
 
Melissa is originally from the Boston area and Anthony originally from County Kerry Ireland. They met while Melissa was working and living in the UK in 2001. They were married in 2002, lived in Massachusetts for a while, then moved to Georgia in 2010, about a year after Harriet was born. They enjoy not having to shovel snow here in the South, although Harriet says she wouldn't mind it.
 
Melissa has a background in sales, office management and event planning which makes her a good fit for her role as Social Chair. Anthony works in sales for a trade show company and is a part time rock star - lead singer and guitarist for the band The 77zeros (frequently seen at the Suburban Tap). Like Melissa, Anthony also loves hosting a good party. This and the fact that the Easter Bunny suit fits him perfectly make him number one on Melissa's list of social event volunteers.
 
Harriet, also a great helper, is our number two volunteer. She loves her friends here in Wicks Lake and can be seen most days running and playing with them outside, catching creatures around the lake or out kayaking, red hair flying in the breeze. 
 
The O'Sheas live lakeside on Wicks Ridge Lane and love having friends over to sit on their dock to enjoy the lake. When they're not working or entertaining, they can be found out walking "Roguey," their beloved Welsh Terrier, or at their home away from home ("Harriet's Cottage") on the Dingle Peninsula of Ireland.
 
Melissa is always looking for volunteers to help execute neighborhood events so be sure to reach out to her if you enjoy party planning and would like to help out.

Member at Large - Shirley Weller
 
While born in Hollywood, CA., Indianapolis was my home for many years.  In August of 1990, we moved to Wicks Lake and have enjoyed calling Georgia home since then.
 
I opened the first Wild Birds Unlimited franchise in GA in 1991, selling the store in the Publix Shopping Center on Piedmont Rd. to the current owners in 1997.  My professional background was retail banking retiring after 21 years of service.
 
I have been active in volunteer board positions for more years than I wish to count.  I have served the Wicks Lake HOA as Chair, Treasurer, and most recently as Vice Chair.  Living on Wicks Lake brings nature to my back door and I want to continue making our neighborhood an inviting and active community for all.
