Michele Miller

Pasco Features Reporter

I’m jack-of-all-trades of sorts, working for the Pasco regional section of the Tampa Bay Times. I plan local education and entertainment coverage and write a fair share of human interest stories. I always have my camera handy because I enjoy taking pictures. I’m passionate about bringing you local news that you won't get anywhere else. I’m a northern transplant who’s been working for the Times for over 20 years, so you could say, I’ve settled in. Your community is my community. Call me any time with a story idea.
