Jessica Roberts was raised in a two-parent home. She is the middle child of three (two sisters) and grew up in a middle-class household. Her mother and father both worked outside of the home, which afforded the family a comfortable lifestyle. 

Her parents were committed to their children and instilled in them the concepts of high morals, values, independence, responsibility, and a strong/firm work ethic.


Prior to October 2007 (the whole drug conspiracy ordeal), the author’s life was happy. She was a proud and responsible first-time mom to her beautiful little girl. She was also gainfully employed at a well-known Company. 


With only three weeks away from graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Human Resource Management (she was unable to complete due to being arrested and sentenced to prison), Jessica Roberts was on the fast track to success having landed an interview for a higher salaried government contract position due to take place once she returned from court (again, this didn’t happen because of being sentenced to jail and prison). 


The author cites her role in the drug conspiracy case, and the subsequent indictment was due to her relationship with her daughter’s father and the people with whom he associated. By God’s grace and her morally sound upbringing, the experience made her better, not bitter. 


The road to piecing her life back together hasn’t been easy, but she continues to accomplish her goals. 

The author’s ultimate goal is to be the CEO/Owner/Operator of a company that assists females with troubled pasts. (To read Jessica's full biography, visit her website.)

"Now that I have the benefit of age, experience, and wisdom, I can see how the things I went through has shaped the woman I am now. The dreams and goals I have now were not the dreams I started out with. My love and my choices left me facing a ten-year prison sentence! In spite of my choices and what I thought I wanted for my life, my dreams took a different turn. My new dreams have been directly influenced by the direction my life took. Coincidence? Read my story and then you can decide."

-Jessica Roberts
