Anjali graduated from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. She spent most of her life growing up in northern Virginia, just outside of Washington D.C., but she also lived in Africa as a child. She spent 4
years in Niger and one year in Rwanda; until her family was forced to leave during the 1994 civil war.
Anjali has a unique name because her mother is from India and her father is American. She is involved with the Indian-American community as well as Special Olympics and Best Buddies.
When Anjali’s not working she enjoys traveling, playing softball, running, crafting, singing and playing the clarinet.
