Let’s get to know Mishelle!
Where were you born/Where are you from?
I was born in Saint John and have lived in both Gingerbread Styled Houses and The Jellybean building..I’m just naturally drawn to old architecture and sweets! I moved to Halifax for college but returned in 2010 to have my son. The saddest part of leaving Halifax was leaving behind my job at Freak Lunchbox, You could imagine my excitement having our Saint John location follow me home a few months after my return.
How long have you been a part of the uptown scene?
I’ve been working uptown since 2011 and I’ve loved every minute of it. There’s just something about our people here, so many of our regular customers have become friends over the years!
What is your favorite season, and why?
I’m a sucker for our Fall Season. There’s something about watching all of the leaves change colour that just makes you feel warm and cozy.
I have a 20Lb Cat at home named Kevin, and a house trained Lop Rabbit named Waffles.
What is your Uptown Insider Tip?
My biggest insider tip is to just take yourself on a walk through the streets of uptown and look up. It’s amazing how many tiny details this city has to offer and we miss out on so much. Take the time and see for yourself!
