Director, Corporate Secretary – Nick MullenNick Mullen and his wife, Hayley, along with the rest of their crew (daughter Molly and son August), moved from New York City to San Anselmo in 2016 and to Sleepy Hollow in 2019. During the day, Nick works as an in-house attorney at a San Francisco-based hedge fund and, after hours, you'll find him hoofing the trails around Sleepy Hollow when not on the pool deck cheering for the Sleepy Hollow Sea Lions or SHAQ waterpolo teams.
Director, Summer Pool - Diane Fiddyment
Diane Fiddyment is a long-time resident of Sleepy Hollow having moved to our idyllic valley in 1996. Diane had a career in the financial markets as a trader at the Pacific Stock Exchange. After a trip to Nepal and India in 1998, life took a drastic turn. Diane dedicated the next phase of her life to non-profit work (Big Brothers/Big Sisters) and building a school in a remote region of Nepal, previously not served with a school. Today, Diane and her husband (Sanar Singh Karki of Kathmandu) split their time between continents. Diane’s volunteer interest brings her to being the liaison between the Board and the Community Pool.
Sam Jelley is British born, and moved to California 14 years ago with her husband, Gareth. She spent 8 years in San Francisco before moving to beautiful Sleepy Hollow after having a daughter, Sophie. As a lover of nature, waking up to deer outside her bedroom window is an absolute joy.
