A 2003 Iona College graduate, Bryers earned a degree in accounting. She was a four-year member of the Gaels' swimming program, earning Most Valuable Player honors in 2002 and 2003 and the Joseph O'Connell Award as the student-athlete of the year at Iona in 2003. Bryers, who also played four seasons of water polo at Iona, graduated with school records in the 500, 1000, and 1650 freestyle and the 200 and 400 individual medley as well as being a member of the school-record setting 200 freestyle and 400 medley relay teams.
In the classroom, Bryers, who also earned an MBA from Iona in 2004, received Academic All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) honors in swimming all four years and was twice named to the All-Academic Collegiate Water Polo Team.
