"The Woman Behind the Vision"


     Vanessa Jackson-Fields is a Woman, Mother, Nurse, Domestic Violence Advocate, Business Owner and Phenomenal Playwright! Her humble upbringing from a poverty stricken neighborhood did not rob her of her dreams. Vanessa started her Play Production Company, Woman With A Vision in 2003.

Her upcoming play production, "If Only In My heart, A love story" will be coming February 29th of this year.

     Vanessa started her second business and became the owner of Octavia's Events and Entertainment Center, a family owned and operated business in August 2017. That was a faith walk within itself. Vanessa is a firm believer in giving back to the community and strives daily to be a positive example to her children, family and friends, showing them that you can still dream big no matter your surroundings.One of Vanessa’s biggest dreams is to restore my neighborhood, the Newtown, Texarkana, Texas Community.

     Vanessa Jackson-Fields is determined to continue the path of setting the trail ablaze as a “first to ever do it,” in family, business, and community.
