Carly Santos

HS/College Counseling

Carly Santos has been working as a school counselor since 2011. Originally from Melbourne, Australia, she completed a Bachelor of Arts – Youth Studies degree which she then complemented with a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education at Victoria University. This has enabled her to work as a counselor and educator while living in Australia and abroad.

Carly’s career on the international circuit has taken her to China, Indonesia, Korea, and now Taiwan. She will be joining KAS as one of the HS counselors. Carly views her role as a counselor to support, advocate, and empower young people. She has a holistic approach, viewing education and student wellbeing as of equal importance. She believes that both these areas are closely interconnected and can have an effect on young people’s capacities to contribute and advance in their learning, their relationships, and with feeling connected to the wider community.

Carly comes to Taiwan with her partner Steve and their daughter Lottie. In her spare time she likes traveling, cooking, reading and spending time with her family.
