Neetu was born and raised in Penticton, British Columbia.
She has a bachelor’s degree in Management and Marketing from UBC Okanagan and a diploma in Broadcast and Online Journalism from BCIT.
Her broadcast career began in Penticton in 2009, when she hosted a weekend radio show at Giant FM. In 2011, she started hosting short TV segments which aired on Shaw TV. She has interned at CTV Vancouver, CKNW Newstalk 980 radio, CFJC TV News in Kamloops and Global Okanagan.
Her break came in 2013 when she was hired out of school to work as a reporter/anchor at CKNW, where she worked for almost a year before coming back home in 2014 to work at Global Okanagan.
Garcha takes on many roles at Global Okanagan including: a Reporter, Web Producer, Anchor, and Video Journalist.
Her family is originally from Punjab, India. She is motivated by the sacrifices her parents made immigrating to Canada to raise a family and the opportunities this has given her.
The former Miss Penticton has been involved in many charitable and humanitarian projects including volunteer trips to Haiti and Greece.
Garcha is happy to be back living and working in the Okanagan.
