PAULA HEAD

ALSAC/ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL
Senior Director, Patient Family Outreach

Paula serves as the Senior Director of Patient Family Outreach. The mission of her team is to identify and steward relationships with patient families ensuring they remain the face, brand and voice of St. Jude and to continuously support their fundraising needs throughout their journey. Paula’s team provides an unparalleled positive experience for patients and their families by making their experience personal and special, while providing resources specific to their fundraising and awareness needs for ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This is something that is especially near to her heart, as she personally walked the halls of St. Jude with her youngest daughter, Carson Elizabeth, for 16 months, until she lost her brave battle with osteosarcoma on June 26, 2015, at the age of nine. Today she continues Carson’s legacy by connecting with patient families who have walked similar journeys, and speaks about Carson’s journey.
