Brynna was born and raised in Red Deer. She attended Red Deer College for the first two years of her degree, and then moved to Winnipeg to complete her training. There she achieved her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, specializing in Athletic Therapy.
Throughout her years at the University of Winnipeg, Brynna spent the majority of her time working with men’s hockey, although she has also spent a significant amount of time working with volleyball and soccer. It was during her time working with hockey that Brynna developed a focus on the prevention, awareness, and treatment of concussions.
Brynna spent her childhood playing many sports before focusing on volleyball for her high school career. She became interested in Athletic Therapy after sustaining a significant ankle injury and spent weeks in therapy before returning back to the sport she loves. Now Brynna enjoys spending time at the gym, running, hiking, and cheering on the Edmonton Oilers.
