Branna was born in Eastern Europe, and graduated Daytona State College in Florida, Associate in Arts and Science. She later graduated from The University of Windsor, with Honors in Biology and Biotechnology. She currently works in neuroscience, on traumatic brain injuries, drug abuse, and microbiome projects.
She loves being in nature, all outdoor activities, and a great cup of coffee. She enjoys cooking too, especially foods from back home - cevapi, cabbage rolls, soups, and stews (but getting her three kids to eat it is a different story).
