The Leaders


Sharon McEneff

Brown Owl (Pack A)

I was a Brownie whilst brought up in Scotland before moving to Hong Kong in 2000. I run my own businesses here in DB and like to keep busy as well as give to the community.

I am passionate about photography, arts and crafts, fitness and team sports as well as building girls confidence and experience. It is a pleasure seeing our Guide community grow.


Kate Lorenz

Little Owl (Pack A)

I am a former Brownie and Girl Guide and grew up in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. I now run my own business in Hong Kong and China. I am really interested in outward bound activities.


Kris Fong

Tawny Owl (Pack A)

I grew up in Hong Kong. I love seeing what changes being a Brownie brings to young girls. I hope all of us will enjoy every moment of “growing up” together.


Wendy Seager

Snowy Owl (Pack A)

I am a former Brownie from Manchester, England. I have lived in Hong Kong since 2008 where I am busy running my UK property business and looking after my four daughters! I am a member of the local community choir and have also previously been a Scout leader here in Discovery Bay.

Chestnut Owl (Pack A)

I grew up in Hong Kong and England and have two children (girl and boy).  My daughter has been in Pack A since it started and so, inspired by the activities of Brownies, I decided to join as a leader. I like the idea that Brownies teaches girls to be the best that they can be and always lend a hand.  When not being in Brownies leader, I work as an employment lawyer in a law firm here in HK.

Brown Owl (Pack B)

After growing up in Africa I lived in the UK, France and the Cayman Islands before moving to Hong Kong. I was the leader of a Girl Scout troop before becoming the Brown Owl of 424B.

I run my own charity and am passionate about sailing, camping and the outdoors. I love helping each Brownie develop to her fullest potential.

Tyto Owl (Pack B)

I was born in Montreal, grew up in Switzerland and have now lived in Asia the last 25 years. I am a mum to 3 girls, work full-time and, in my free time, enjoy exploring new places with the family. I enjoy using my life skills to encourage the girls on their Brownie adventures.

Night Owl (Pack B)

I grew up in Hong Kong and became a Brownie with my best friends. My day job is in the sustainability field and I look forward to sharing my passions for the ocean, swimming and fun while supporting the growth of the girls.

Brown Owl (Pack C)

Originally from the Netherlands, I grew up in Belgium where I was a member of the Chiro, the biggest youth organisation.  During my teenage years I worked as a leader for language learning camps.  I moved to Hong Kong after several years in China & Indonesia.  My goal is that every Brownie grows into an independent and confident young person in charge of her own path in life.

White Owl (Pack C)

I was  born in Vietnam, with Chinese roots and brought up in Sweden and continued to travel all over the world. With this background, I can honestly say that I am truly a globaltrotter with a deep understanding of the Nordic and Chinese Culture. I have two daughters and saw the joy that my older daughter had as a guide. I joined as a leader to introduce my second daughter to the Brownie lifestyle. My goal is to spread the good work and positivity the Girl Guide Association is doing to the rest of the young adults in the world.
