Garima Batra believes love shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Love is freeing, exciting, (sometimes) all-encompassing but mostly, safe in the best way possible. A designer in a prior life and a global nomad at heart, Garima is now a software engineer who deeply believes in adding the heart to the process. Born in India and raised in Argentina, Germany, Hungary and the US, she has a lust for adventure that has led her to cliff-diving in remote beaches to hiking the Adirondacks on a whim. With a results-driven approach and deep belief in serendipity, she wants to add that spark of adventure into your life. Sometimes it’s not about finding your love at first sight, but rather being open to the idea. So let’s jump in and take the risk together!
