Kay Choy is a practicing architect with more than 20 years of experience, and has been involved in a wide range of projects of different scales. In addition to her architectural profession, as a lifelong learner with special interests in law and psychology, she had also obtained a bachelor degree in law and recently a master degree in psychology.
