My name is Jennifer M. Roberts and I am announcing my candidacy to proudly serve the Choctaw people of District 4 Northern Leflore County on the Choctaw Nation Tribal Council. I have two young sons (ages 9 and 5) and I am the wife of Jeff Roberts of Poteau and the daughter of Denise and the late Victor Dale Carshall. My grandparents who are now with the Lord, Reverend Jimmy Lee and Ruth (Mackey) Carshall from the Leflore area; greatly portrayed the pride of being faithful servants to the Choctaw people.


My motivation has always been to carry on this tradition of compassion, strength and leadership to provide the best representation our tribal members deserve. The betterment of our senior citizens, Choctaw families and our youth will always be my focus and my hard work will reflect this improvement. I want our youth to have a strong cultural identity that gives them the confidence to continue our tribal successes for many generations. I will continue to advocate for quality education and will do what is needed to help provide the most advanced educational resources for our tribal members in order to gain valuable employment and career choice opportunities.

Quality healthcare and healthy lifestyles are also a huge priority for me because I want our Choctaw families to live in homes that reflect this kind of care for the benefits of overall health and wellness of our tribal members.


District 4 has always been my home and not only do I want our tribal members to thrive but also our communities where we raise our families.


I attended school at Poteau High School, Carl Albert State College and graduated with a Bachelor Degree and Master of Science Degree in Counseling in 2012 from East Central University in Ada. I’ve worked professionally for the Choctaw Nation for the past 7 years as an advocate, grant coordinator and therapist for the Behavioral Health department, where I worked with many different tribal programs, law enforcement and community agencies, tribal and public schools, elder programs, as well as crisis shelters and child advocacy centers.


Since early 2016, I have worked as a career development counselor to provide academic and guidance support for our Choctaw tribal members at colleges, universities, and vocational technology centers, as well as support our high school Choctaw students with future career and academic goals. I have always taken great pride in working hard for our tribal members, because I feel it is an honor to help and assist in any type of work I do for the Choctaw Nation that betters the lives of the Choctaw people. Yakoke!
