Head Care Advisor/Licensed Funeral Director
My name is Saudia Carson, I started my career as a funeral director/embalmer in
2012 graduating with honors after only receiving an 8th grade education with a GED.
I have worked in many cities to gain experience and knowledge from others in this
career who have come before me. I broke a record in 2019 for becoming the first
African American deputy coroner of Knox County, and the first African American
female mortician of that same county. I have received accolades from Carl
Sandburg College Black Student Association for my hard work. In 2021 I opened my
own funeral trade service and started as head care advisor for Central Cremation
Center and met three amazing people who had the same dreams and aspirations as
myself. I believe that we all live our lives different so when a person dies, I want to
give them the best service and make it unique, to show who they were and why
they will be missed.
