I am single and the youngest child of Bob & Phyllis Noll. My siblings are Debbie Pastura (husband Rick), Bob Noll III
(wife Jane), Connie Noll. I have one nephew & three nieces; Quinn and Lucy Pastura, and Katelyn and Krista Noll.
I am a Physical Therapist and the Center Manager for Nova Care Rehabilitation in Crestview Hills, Ky.
I joined Pastoral Council because St. Joseph is my spiritual home and I want to help us realize our potential as a parish
family and as members of the body of Christ. We are in a place right now where we need to see some changes
happen in order to deepen our faith, grow our parish, and serve our community in the way that God intended. I’m here
to serve the members of this parish family and I think Pastoral Council is the best way for me to fulfill that promise.
