    "One of Venetia's defining qualities to me is her humility. Even though her skills and intelligence easily place her on par with the best practitioners in Singapore, Venetia has always remained very down to earth and willing to share her knowledge with those who ask. Never one to sing her own praises, she quietly and diligently works to obtain the best results for her client and places much thought into the welfare of her team. As this is how she works, I have found that it is not necessary for Venetia to try and put her name out there, as those who have worked with her do it on her behalf."
