Our stories



A career at ALSAC/St. Jude is rewarding in many different ways. Here's what some of our employees have to say about why they love working here.

Nikia Johnson,Senior Director, Field Operations
When I was a kid, whenever anyone asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I'd always say, “a super-hero." And while I thought having super powers would be fun, I really wanted to be a super-hero just so I could help others. Of course, I was never bitten by a radioactive spider nor do I wear a mask and cape while responding to a signal in the night sky. However, working here at ALSAC/St. Jude allows me to go home every night knowing that I’m a real hero because I have made a difference in the life of a child.  

Sarah Williams, Specialist, Field Operations
Being a part of ALSAC/St. Jude is more than just a job. It's definitely being a part of a mission that has a global impact. It's a great feeling to know that the work you're doing each day is helping kids and their families. We all work together for one goal: finding cures and saving children.

Timothy Bayly, Director, Region 9 New York Office
What I love most about working for ALSAC/St. Jude is opportunity in its truest sense and meaning. Opportunity to work alongside dedicated and passionate staffers who have the attribute to strive to do only the best for St. Jude kids. Opportunity to grow intellectually, spiritually and physically due to the fundraising/development work. Opportunity to learn from savvy leadership under the roof of ALSAC. 

Rory Theeuwes, Coordinator, Executive Office
When I was hired in 2001, I had no idea what ALSAC/St. Jude was really all about. On my first day, my supervisor enlightened me and later said he hoped I'd catch the St. Jude spirit. I did. It is such a good feeling whenever I come to work to realize all my efforts are for a good cause—a very good cause.

Maribel Jimenez, Specialist, Human Resources
I love working at ALSAC because not only am I part of saving lives, but it is such a pleasure to wake up every day knowing that I have another family to go to. We are all here for the same mission and goal and I enjoy working with such great people.
