Background + Certifications
Dr. Terry grew up in Alamo, California, where she balanced traveling year-round on an elite soccer team while excelling in academics. She pursued her undergraduate degree in Human Performance at the University of Southern California (USC), and soon went on to complete her Master's of Occupational Therapy (OT) at USC, where she focused on Lifestyle Redesign®, a preventative lifestyle-based OT approach founded at USC. She completed a clinical rotation at the USC Occupational Therapy Faculty Practice, home of Lifestyle Redesign®, where she was trained on lifestyle interventions helping clients of all ages manage chronic conditions such as migraine, pain, epilepsy, and diabetes. Here she saw the need for early intervention and preventative services, and ultimately found her passion working with young professionals and high school, college and graduate students. She found her ikigai, helping them adapt to new routines and responsibilities associated with these life transitions, while also helping them to discover and successfully integrate health-promoting and sustainable habits for lifelong success. Brynne went on to pursue her Doctorate of Occupational Therapy at Boston University, where her focus was on college student wellbeing, designing an innovative stress management mobile application for the college student population.
Brynne frequently contributes to online media outlets, such as Thrive Global, and has been featured as a guest on multiple health and wellness podcasts.

In staying genuine and authentic to my audience, I will never endorse a product, brand, or idea that I do not use or support myself. Know that the content I share has helped my personal journey to wellbeing, and that I am committed to providing this community with access to holistic health and wellness perspectives and resources across all aspects of life.

My experiences have inspired the creation of this website, but what has ultimately driven my passion behind the website is my own personal journey to wellbeing -- one that is ongoing and far from perfect. It has taken years of struggling, not knowing how to effectively manage all aspects of my wellbeing, and reaching my breaking point to ultimately find my personal sense of balance. While I am human, and still live through ups and downs along the way, I have experienced tremendous personal growth by integrating consistent practices that support my mind + body + soul. I hope to inspire you to do the same.
