Faces of Tampa: Michelle Roberson
Meet Michelle. Mother of 5 and grandmother of 3. She’s funny, fun, loves children and just an overall fun person to be around. She’s open, easy to talk to and genuinely a nice person. I met her at Ross. She is a store manager there. She is a determined and hard working person. She put’s her mind to getting things done and achieves them as best as she can.
Michelle is originally from Queens, NY. She still has the accent and it will never go away. It’s great! She moved here to get away from the cold. As she said it the winters up there are horrible. You get snow up to your knees every year, snow storms and they demand you to get the snow cleared up in your area or you get fined. So Florida is where she chose to make her new home. She moved here right after hurricane Sandy.
This year is Michelle’s 6th year being in Tampa. What she loves about Tampa is that it seems quiet, calming and relaxing. She loves to cook and her favorite dish to cook is soul food.
