Dr. Garg attended the University of Calgary for three years, where she worked in health sciences and conducted research on myopia (near-sightedness). In 2002, she had the opportunity to present her research at the ARVO conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This experience perked her interest in visual science and, following her desire to become involved in health care, Dr. Garg pursued a degree in Optometry.

She attended the University of Waterloo and graduated in 2007 with honours. During her training, she completed a four month pathology and therapeutic internship at a veterans hospital in Muskogee, Oklahoma. She also participated in an eye care mission, teaming with other doctors to provide eye care and glasses to the less fortunate in Chile and Peru.

After graduating, Dr. Garg decided to return to her hometown of Calgary and join practice with Dr. David Blaine. She enjoys the challenges of private practice and expanding her patient base in this growing community. In her spare time, she likes to play basketball and volleyball, go hiking in the mountains, and travel world-wide.
