This interview was originally taken December 2016. Since then, Davis accepted a new position as the Head AT for Muskigum
University in Ohio. Learn more below about her new position and latest pageant.
What is Arianne Davis up to now?
A lot has changed since this interview! I moved to Ohio in June 2017 and am now the Head AT
for Muskingum University. The athletic training program at Muskingum University was recently
accredited in August, requiring the program director to step into that role full-time, thus creating a
Head AT position.
In my new position, I went to and competed for a rival college in the Ohio Athletic Conference, so it
has been fun being back home! My husband is also coaching at Marietta College, which is one of
Muskingum’s biggest rivals, so we are a house divided. Our son was not
sure for whom to cheer when our football teams played one another! I am
covering football and women’s lacrosse with administrative duties over the
winter. I went from a staff of 2, to a staff of 6, so life has been an adventure
with my newfound free time.
The 2018 Mrs. Captivating national competition was held at the end of
July. I am thrilled to have placed as second runner-up!
One of the projects with which I became involved, as Mrs. Michigan, was bringing Darryl Strawberry, multi-time
World Series Champion, to New Concord this past weekend. It was an incredible way to intertwine my love
of service to others and athletics. For those who do not know, Darryl turned his life around from a millionaire,
womanizing, drug addicted, cancer victim who served jail time to a life of service to God and educating
against substance abuse! He even operates 2 rehabilitation centers in Florida. He was an incredible speaker
and was kind enough to take a photo with Ian, our son!
Each of us started as the new hire. I will NEVER ask you to do
anything that I have not, or, do not perform myself.
It is not about your level of education or ego. It IS about what we
can do to provide an optimal environment for our athlete’s health,
well-being and safety.
Athletic Training has always been, and I hope will continue to be, a
profession of giving. Be a sponge, ready and willing to absorb as
much information and insight as you can. I often say that when you
stop learning, you should leave the profession. A person who thinks
they know all there is to know is dangerous. Be eager to learn and
seek out those opportunities, you will be surprised at how much
you can gain!
