Shirani was born and brought up in a godly Christian family in Malaysia and came to live in Perth in 2007. Shirani worked for over 35 years in the legal/commercial sector in Malaysia, Singapore and Australia and in July 2020 felt it was time to move on from the corporate world fully into Christian ministry. Over the years, she has served in various areas including in worship/music (singing at hospital, aged care homes and prisons), community work and intercessory prayer. Intercessory prayer is the ministry closest to her heart, especially praying for Australia.
Shirani and her husband Winstedt worship at Subiaco Church of Christ where Shirani serves as a deacon.
