Rani Majumder is Shaun’s older sister and only sibling
Born in Toronto in 1968, Rani moved with her family to Newfoundland at the age of eight. After Shaun and Rani’s parents split up, she lived with her mother and brother in Burlington and Baie Verte, Newfoundland until she was 16 — at which point the family moved back to Ontario.
Rani graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in ecology and minoring in botany. She worked at a National Parks and various wildlife centres as a Nature Interpreter for five years, and for the past 18 years, has been teaching in Southwestern Ontario.
In 1999, she took a leave and spent a few months backpacking through England, Scotland, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania and India. She went back to Scotland with Chris Macleod (also a teacher) and they got married on the Isle of Skye in 2002.
She is currently living in Southwestern Ontario with her husband, Chris and their eight-year-old daughter, Lily. For the last 8 years, she has been teaching kindergarten and absolutely loves it. Her favourite pastimes include: reading and watching the Game of Thrones TV series
Rani also dabbled in musical theatre for a few years and landed a role in one episode of CBC’s “Hatching, Matching and Dispatching.” She has yet to win a Gemini like her younger brother.
