Priest was born in New Plymouth, Taranak and plays for Central Districts Hind in the State League. A technically correct wicket-keeper Priest was picked for the New Zealand A side in 2007. A quickfire 34-ball 36 fast tracked her to the national side.
The debut came against Australia in a Twenty20 International (T20I). Since then she has been a regular in the White Ferns side. Priest generally opens the batting with Suzie Bates and the duo have become a formidable pair for their national side.
Coming as a hard-hitting batter Priest was not known for her consistency. However, all that changed during the 2015-16 period, where she scored 592 runs at an average of 53.81, including four fifties and two centuries. With over 150 international games for White Ferns, Priest has formed the core of the side along with Bates, Sophie Devine and Amy Satterthwaite.
Priest was picked up by Melbourne Renegades in the Women's Big Bash League and has played two seasons for them. She also plays for the Western Storm in England's Super League.
