While attending UNH, she completed her college internship with the Norwalk Police Department. She was also a Wilton Police Explorer from 2011-15.

Officer Nair grew up in New Canaan and is a graduate of the Norwich Military Academy of Vermont. There he received a bachelor’s degree in psychology.

He has been serving in the Army National Guard since March 2017, as an artillery cannon crew member.

He is a member of the Wilton Volunteer Ambulance Corp. and works for Norwalk Hospital as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).
