She won two medals at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics and she was a member of Hong Kong women's team at the 2014 World Team Championships. In 2015, she won a bronze medal in mixed doubles event with Wong Chun Ting at the World Championships. In 2021, she also won bronze in the women's team event with Lee Ho Ching and Minnie Soo Wai Yam at the 2020 Summer Olympics.
Doo is a graduate of Heep Yunn School.
In the 2020 Summer Olympics, Doo reached the quarter-finals in the women's single event where she lost to top seed Chen Meng after leading 2–0. In one of the more interesting wrinkles of the tournament, play was stopped mid-game in Doo's match against Chen so that Doo could cover a logo on her pants with duct tape (due to Olympic sponsorship rules). Doo, along with her teammates Lee Ho Ching and Minnie Soo Wai Yam, won bronze in the women's team event, defeating Germany with 3–1 in the bronze medal match.
Hong Kong Sports Stars Awards
Doo won one of the Hong Kong Junior Sports Stars Awards in 2014. As a member of the Hong Kong National Table Tennis Team (mixed doubles), she was also a two-time winner of the Hong Kong Sports Star Awards for Team Event, both in 2015 and 2017.
