Zhi Lee

Consultant Since 2018

Howdy! My name is Zhi Lee. I’m a senior MIS student with a minor in economics from Katy, TX. Something interesting about me, that not everyone knows, is that I lived in China for a couple of years during the start of my childhood. Growing up, I became fluent in English by reading books. I loved all types, but my absolute favorite was anything involving animals (like Aesop’s Fables). I find that this love still persists to this day which eventually led me to becoming a consultant at the Comm Lab. When people come in to speak with me, I turned into a reader again. Clients share information about themselves, giving me a glimpse into their story and personal journey. Every one of them is unique, and I adore them all. Speaking of adoration, I’m also a devoted member of the fish-keeping hobby.
