Early life and education
Roberts attended Seattle Pacific University where she played for the Falcons. During her time with the Falcons (1993-1997), Roberts set a school record for 3-pointers made in one season at 82 and for three-point percentage in a game when she made 7 of 8 against Willamette. Roberts regards her most memorable moment at college when she made the game winning 3-pointers to defeat Division I's UC Davis Aggies. Roberts graduated in 1997 with a bachelor's degree in history.
After graduating from Seattle Pacific, Roberts remained to pursue a master's degree. While pursuing her master's degree, Roberts served as a student assistant for the Falcons. Over five seasons Roberts helped lead the Falcons to a 113-31 record and five straight NCAA Division 2 appearances. Roberts graduated with a master's degree in athletic administration in 2000.
In 2002 Roberts was hired as the head coach for Cal State Chico, where she coached from 2002-2006. While at Cal State Chico Roberts amassed an 86-31 record. The Wildcats set school records for wins in both 2005 and 2006 while finishing first place in their conference. The 2005 title was the first CCAA title in Cal State Chico history. That same season the Wildcats advanced to the NCAA Tournament West region Championship, and in 2006 the Wildcats would make it to the D2 Final Four.
In 2006 Roberts was hired as the head coach for the University of the Pacific. After a slow first few seasons, Roberts helped the Tigers post a record 27 wins in 2013. She won the Big West Conference coach of the year, and her team came to be known as the "Cardiac Kids." The Tigers made a school record 3 straight post-season appearances under Roberts. Roberts subsequently had her contract extended through 2017.
On April 20, 2015, it was announced that the University of Utah hired Roberts as their next head women's basketball coach. In her first season Roberts led Utah to an 18–15 record, Utah's first winning season since 2012–13.
