Meet the Art Walk Coordinators
Stefanie Haugen is founder of Resolve Chiropractic in the Morgan Junction. She is our newest Art Walk coordinator and is passionate about building community in support of the arts and small businesses.
Marie Flake came to Seattle for college, has lived in a number of neighborhoods, and has lived in West Seattle for the past 20 years. She participates in the Morgan Community Association (MoCA) from working with neighbors to plan and develop Solstice Park to now helping recruit businesses to join the Art Walk. When she’s not working at her “day job” in public health, you can find her exploring nooks, crannies and off-the-beaten-path parts of Seattle or the world, kayaking, bicycling or gardening.
Sofia Velling lived in West Seattle as a child, returning as an adult, and has been living in the Admiral District since October 2017. She currently serves as the Membership and Outreach position for the Admiral Neighborhood Association. In her day job, Sofia is a Staff Attorney at the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project. She loves coffee, Alki walks and consignment shopping in West Seattle.
Reeve Washburn, a 23-year resident of West Seattle, is a big fan of the West Seattle Junction Association, and is excited to serve as one of the Art Walk coordinators! She loves how Art Walk brings the neighborhood together to experience a wide variety of creative expressions, all while supporting small business and local artists’ work. Reeve brings to the committee her experience in creative project management from a career spent in brand design, and manages the Art Walk website, blog posts and the Artist Library. For her own creative outlet, Reeve is a painter and manages design and marketing for the Northwest Firelight Chorale, her singing group. She lives in Endolyne with her husband Mark, young adult children Faye and Wyatt and Portuguese Water Dog Pepper.
