Bryona was born August 7, 1999 at the Portsmouth Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, Va., to Bryon J. Wiler and Alicia Kelly Wiler. Though only 13 years old, she had intelligence beyond her years.

She wanted to learn to play the trumpet and her love of animals led her to want to one day become a veterinary nurse. She was an avid "American Girl" Doll collector, who collected and played with her dolls constantly. She loved "Sponge Bob" and "Scooby Doo" and musically, her favorite artists were Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift.
