    When asked what advice she'd give, her response is to

    "Live for today because one day tomorrow won't be there."

        Brynn is the newest member of the Crew, joining in October of 2022. Her responsibilities include eating, napping and pooping. 

        She enjoys napping and making cute little noises.

        At this time, she doesn't have a favorite quote. Mostly because she can't talk...yet.
