She started her career as a mental health technician at an acute care hospital.

She is a graduate of the Leadership Louisville Class of 2013 and is a member of the Leadership Kentucky Class of 2019. Nolan was recognized as one of Louisville Business First’s 2018 “20 People to Know in Healthcare.” She plans to also be involved in the Mount Sterling community.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to serve as president of Saint Joseph Mount Sterling, working with the leadership team there, striving every day for continuous improvement,” said Nolan. “The hospital is very similar to Flaget from the services we provide to the dedication of the staff serving their communities. We have several opportunities where we can leverage best practices and efficiencies.”
