Kyong Lee, college counselor, joined Saint Mary’s college counseling office in 2018. She holds a certificate in college counseling from the University of California Los Angeles, an M.B.A. from Duke University, and a B.A. in psychology from Davidson College. She is the mother of a Saint Mary’s alumna, Olivia Ng '17.

Following the completion of her M.B.A., Ms. Lee held various positions in corporate banking, brand marketing, and project management with different organizations. Her educational journey—from a small liberal arts college to a mid-sized research university and a large research institution’s online program—has been pivotal in her life. Bringing learned, transferable skills from her corporate experiences to the education field has felt like coming home.  

When she’s not thinking, reading, or talking about education and the college process, Ms. Lee enjoys watching her son play soccer and Face-timing with her daughter (Saint Mary's Class of 2017) and imagining becoming an empty-nester with her husband.
