Trish Doan (born May 9, 1985 in Gwangju, South Korea) is the bassist of the all-woman band Kittie. She joined in August 2005 along with Tara McLeod. Doan is a niece of Sudbury, Ontario MPP Rick Bartolucci. In addition to bass, she has also played guitar since the age of 13. She has several body modifications: Piercings include a 14g tongue stud, two 16g lip rings, 18g nose stud, 18g nose ring, 00g stretched ears, 2x 12g ear lobes, 4x 16g lobes, and 14g helix, and several tattoos, including one on her left wrist of a formation of the symbol Gwangju, the city in which she was born. In 2006, Doan graduated from Sheridan College, earning a diploma in Media Arts: Film and Television Production.[1][2]

On June 28, 2007 Doan announced that she would be taking a hiatus from Kittie, "due to pressing personal health matters". Her stand-in replacement for the Sweet Revenge tour would be Jeff Phillips from Thine Eyes Bleed.[3] On March 4, 2008 it was officially announced that Doan had left the band Kittie due to the eating disorder Anorexia-Athletica-Nervosa that she had been struggling with for almost two years.[4]

On February 13, 2012 Kittie announced that Ivy Vuijic was resigning the band and that Trish Doan was back.
