Niraali was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, but grew up in Winona, MN. After graduating high school in Winona, Niraali attended the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She completed her undergraduate degree in Microbiology in 2014 and soon after graduated with a master’s degree in Bacteriology in 2016.

In January of 2015, Niraali began volunteering her time at Madison Dental Initiative.  Initially, Niraali spent her time at MDI sterilizing instruments and assisting dentists, but now, in her position as Care Coordinator, she has been given the opportunity to get to know the local community that is in need of dental care. Through this organization, her passion to help others with dentistry has increased tenfold.

In her free time, Niraali enjoys cheering on the Badgers during football and basketball season, reading, and binge watching TV shows.
