Trish A. Priest
Senior Assistant Director of Admissions and Campus Visit Coordinator
740-427-5790 voice email@example.com
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Trish has spent the past twenty years moving in and out of the state and is happy to be back. She graduated from Hanover College (Indiana) in 1995 with a B.A. in communications and sociology, and began her career in admissions at her alma mater as an admissions counselor/visit coordinator. After marrying her husband, Dan (a college basketball coach), her journey included a move back to Ohio (Ohio Dominican University), a move to Conway, Arkansas (Hendrix College), and back to Ohio in 2010, when Dan accepted the men's basketball coaching position at Kenyon.
Prior to joining Kenyon College admissions, Trish served as the adult fitness coordinator at the YMCA of Mount Vernon, Ohio. An ACE certified personal trainer, she continues to train several varsity athletic teams at Kenyon and has taught in the Kenyon Fit program as well. Never one to be still, she is an avid runner (Boston Marathon qualifier and finisher) and regionally ranked triathlete and loves everything fitness-related (except yoga!).
Above all, she feels blessed to be called "mom" by her kids, Jake, Mitch and Carly. She and her family live in Mount Vernon, Ohio, and are active in their church and school communities.
In her position as campus visit coordinator, Trish has the opportunity to work with students on an individual basis in planning their campus visit experience. A large portion of her responsibilities involves the overnight hosting program, which matches visiting prospective students with Kenyon student hosts.
