Brynna's professional writing career began eight years ago, when the travel blog she started from her tiny flat in Florence, Italy as a newly-post-graduate expatriate was picked up by In the years that followed, she traveled the globe, writing creatively about her experiences and working her way up to editor-in-chief of The Feed. In that role, Brynna proved to be instrumental in transforming the news and entertainment site into a digital creative collective that covered topics ranging from art and travel to wellness, literature, comedy, and crafting. Soon after, Brynna relocated to San Diego where she met with the founder of Wave Soda, a natural soda company for which she developed a health and wellness blog to be associated with their national campaign.
