Q & A with Diane Haugen, Community Connector

 

Q&A with Diane Haugen, former director of the Lake City Community Center and the Chamber of Commerce

Moving on to New Things

Diane Haugen, former Chamber and Community Center Director

Enjoy Lake City (ELC) recently visited Diane Haugen at a local restaurant to talk about a changing Lake City, the meaning of community, and the joy of Alpacas. The former Executive Director of the Lake City/North Seattle Chamber of Commerce and manager of the Lake City Community Center has moved on to new work in a different neighborhood, but says she feels she will always be part of the Lake City community.

ELC: How long did you work at the Chamber and the Community Center?

Ten years for the Chamber and five at the Community Center.

Do you miss Lake City?

I do miss the community.  I drive through it every day though, and I’m not too far away, just in Meadowbrook. I go to restaurants in Lake City all the time so I really feel like I haven’t left.

The Lake City Community Center is located at 12531 28th Ave NE next to the library.

ELC: What did you like best about the work? 

I’ve met a lot of people and I have a lot of connections. I open windows for people. I like to put people together if they can help each other. At Chamber after hours, I’d find out what people needed — a caregiver, a salesman, etc.- and make introductions face to face. That is the part of the work that feeds me.
