During the off season, your CV Swim Team Board of Directors works hard to prepare for the next season, strategize for future years, and consider ways to make swimming an integral part of our community. Please welcome our new and returning members of the this vital leadership team!
Kelly Queen (Board Chair)
Kelly is from Calvert County, Maryland and grew up on the Patuxent River. She has enjoyed water skiing, boating and swimming from a young age. Now with 3 kids of her own, Luke, Tyler & Emmaline, she enjoys watching them find their joy on the neighborhood swim team, playing soccer, basketball, baseball, piano, dancing and playing in the woods. When she’s not tutoring students, volunteering her time on the Cultural Arts board or coaching her youngest sons baseball team, she can be found camping & hiking with her husband, children & 2 dogs, or reading a good book on the beach!
Janice Patriss (Vice Chair)
Janice grew up in Fayetteville, NC. She enjoyed swimming, water skiing, fishing, bowling and tennis from an early age. She has lived in Charleston Village for 17 years with her husband Dan and their 2 children, Lauren and DJ. When she is not working as a compound pharmacist or traveling to watch her son play hockey, you can find her at home with her family, planning the next event for their non-profit, Gamers For Cures, spending time with the local Turner Syndrome Carolinas chapter, teaching her daughter to drive, or just reading a book.
Amanda Lynch (Secretary and Concessions)
Amanda has called several places home. She grew up in Humble, TX, then moved to Boston, where she went to school and met her husband, Eric. They started their lives together there and, ultimately moved to Charlotte, NC, to start a family. They relocated to Apex a couple of years ago with their three kiddos: Andrew, Abby, and Devin. The family finally settled in Charleston Village a year and half ago and have loved getting to know their new neighbors. When she is not working at Girl Scouts, or shuttling her kiddos somewhere, Amanda enjoys cooking, reading, diving into nerd culture, and exploring fun things to do in the area with her family.
Jason Machalicky (Treasurer)
Jason grew up in Los Angeles, California and moved to North Carolina in 2002 to complete his residency training in child psychiatry at UNC Chapel Hill. He was compelled to stay in North Carolina after meeting his amazing wife, Stephanie. They moved to Charleston village in 2015 with their two children, Molly and Ellie. He enjoys reading science fiction, playing guitar, eating chocolate and dreaming of ways he can convert his house into a theme park for Halloween. He has really appreciated how the Charleston Village Crocodiles swim team has been such a positive way for the community to connect.
George Pilkington (TSA Representative)
George is a stable and committed member of the Swim Team board. With a no-wasting-time-get-down-to-business attitude, George keeps the board, the team, and the meets on track. When you see George at the pool, ask him about this dog, his kids, and his hobbies, because we’d love to know more about this enigma on the board.
