Dr. Robertson and her late husband were also serious ballroom dancers and danced six times in the National Championships.

She is living proof that there is a life after retirement from oneís work and that this can be a wonderfully rewarding and exciting time of life. The State of Florida is proud to have her represent us at the Ms. Senior America Pageant to take place October 15 to 20 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
