High School/College Counseling
Hello! Welcome to the CMIS High School/College Counseling page! I'm Nicole Lee, your High School Counselor. You may have already seen me around campus last year. This year will be my first year working full-time at CMIS, and I’m excited to meet and get to know each and every one of you!!
On this site, you’ll be able to find a bit of information about social/emotional well-being, academic readiness, career and college planning, and a little bit about me!
What is School Counseling?
According the American School Counselors Association, School Counselors are uniquely qualified to work with students to address and solve academic hardships, support social and emotional growth of students and assist with career and college readiness to prepare students for the world beyond.

My love of working with youth, counseling, and Thailand, has led me to where I am today. My first degree was in Philosophy from York University in Toronto, Canada. I cherish everything that I’ve learned through Philosophy, because it set a solid groundwork on which I’ve built my career. After graduating, I decided to work at a small non-profit organization for street youth in downtown Toronto. I’ve since had the pleasure to work in Waterloo, South Korea, and Chiang Mai. I went on to study Social Work at University of Waterloo to further my skills and knowledge in the field, which eventually led me to pursue my Master of Education in School Psychology. I’ve been living in Chiang Mai for the last three years and I’m looking forward to enjoying more adventures in this great city!
Random fact about me: I have moved more than 20 times in my life!
