Associate Director of Coaching Operations

Luis Santiago (He/Him)

My passion for working with others in the career decision-making process truly began with my indecision about what career path I should pursue when entering college. After changing my major multiple times, graduating with a degree that I didn’t use at first, and working full-time while pursuing a second bachelor’s, I finally stumbled upon the world of career counseling. Since 2009, I have used my own experiences and formal training to help others reach their academic and career goals.

Now, my role at the Career and Internship Center allows me to train, lead, and supervise a fantastic team of Career Coaches. These coaches work tirelessly to provide the highest level of support to our UW students and alumni as they seek their success in the career development process. From choosing a major/career that’s right for you, all the way to becoming employed, we are here for our UW students every step of the way!

I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, and I am a proud alum of Florida State University. Now I get to call the Pacific Northwest and the University of Washington my home!
