Nilani Thiyagarajah lives in Chicago, Illinois with her best friend and canine companion, the amazing Jake (named after the amorphous dog in Adventure Time). She has a BS in Biology and a BA in Psychology and English from Case Western Reserve University, as well as minors in Chemistry, French, and Music. Basically, she’s always been interested in everything and can never choose just one when it comes to topics to learn. One thing she is sure of, however, is her love for all animals, especially dogs. Nilani considers herself extremely lucky to have found an opportunity to write about them and potentially improve the lives of dogs and dog owners everywhere.
Nilani loves taking Jake for walks and just sitting around with him when lounging around at home as well. As a Siberian Husky/German Shepherd mix, he has some interesting qualities and is the inspiration for a lot of her writing on dogs. She knows that every dog who lives in a home is someone’s Jake, and she wants to make sure to put a special effort into every article, as every article could potentially do a lot of good for these dogs and their owners.
Nilani also enjoys writing, mostly because it allows her to learn all sorts of new things that can be used in positive ways. Of course, Jake is by her side as she does all of these things, making every journey that much more enjoyable. When she’s not writing about dogs and other topics, Nilani can likely be found exploring the great city of Chicago, traveling, or simply hanging out at home reading a good book.
