With a post professional degree (M.S. Arch) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), Zhouli relocated to Chicago. Her first job in US was Façade design intern with Thornton Tomasetti, which provided exposure and concepts related to cutting-edge façade design technologies. In 2016, she started her main project, the CME Lobby Redevelopment, with Krueck + Sexton Architects. She worked on this project from schematic design through construction administration. Her working experience covered all phases of project design, developing, documenting, engineer coordination and document quality control. As the BIM manager for KSArch, she was also responsible for coordination of BIM model in CA phase for this project and to give internal REVIT instruction to her co-workers.
For the past 10 years, Zhouli has been shaping her career path well-rounded. She is currently pursuing her license and is an active member of the Chicago Building Envelope Council and the Chicago Revit User Group. In her spare time, this enthusiastic life explorer has fun in music, photographing, traveling and driving drones.
