Knowledge is knowing what to say. Wisdom is knowing when to say it.

Dorathy is an inclusive and compassionate team player, and she admires many different attributes that her colleagues bring to the table. She appreciates Stuart Dowding who’s “always supportive and caring” and whose smiley face helps keep her calm under pressure. Dorathy also enjoys working with James Russell, who’s “always fun to be around".


Dorathy sponsors children in Uganda, and she will never forget meeting the people whose lives she’s helped change when she visited the country. In the future, she’d like to spend more time volunteering. A proud mother herself, her father has been her biggest professional influence, with his encouragement to work hard and learn as much as possible. In her spare time, Dorathy enjoys cooking, eating and relaxing with her family in Hong Kong – her birthplace.
