Bio Nilani Thiyagarajah

Nilani Thiyagarajah has been a writer and editor since 2012. She has a BA in Psychology and English, in addition to a BS in Biology and three minors (French, Chemistry, and Music). She is able to find value in any type of knowledge and enjoys being as well-rounded as possible. However, there are some topics that she likes more than others. One of the things she cares about most is dogs and their welfare.

Currently, Nilani lives in Chicago, Illinois, with Jake, a wonderfully crazy German Shepherd/Siberian Husky mix. She loves spending time with him, whether it’s taking him for a walk or just hanging out at home. He helps motivate her to write great articles about dogs – since she knows that every dog is someone’s Jake, she always remembers how important it is to make every article as helpful as possible to dog owners and their furry friends.
