Staff Spotlight – Brynna Van Wyk

Brynna is an ARNP in the Division of Nephrology, Dialysis, and Transplantation.

I work in Pediatric Nephrology primary in the inpatient setting. My career at Iowa began in 2008 as a staff nurse in the PICU. In 2011, I joined Pediatric Nephrology as an advanced practice provider.

I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart, Lance, since 2005. We’ve been blessed with two children – Bentley (age 6) and Layna (age 3). The newest addition to our family is a golden doodle puppy named Dodger.

In my free time I like to be outdoors – go for a hike or a good walk. I also enjoy catching up with friends, and going on little adventures with my family.

My favorite book would be any historical fiction and sometimes I enjoy a good biography.

Fun fact: I wanted to be a nurse since I was in kindergarten, and by the time I was in high school I worked the 3-11pm shift as a nursing assistant in our local hospital.
