IBM is where May developed the foundation of sales, service and customer skills.

She also became the President of Parent Teacher Organization for her son's school where she orchestrated numerous fund raising events, improved parent participation in volunteering and built a stronger relationship between teachers/administration and the parent community. The PTO was inactive and ineffective at the time she took the reins, and with May's leadership it became a vital part of the school's operation to provide funding to supplement the teaching programs and enhanced the students' programs across the K-5 classrooms. Parents, teachers, and local businesses were motivated to participate due to her ability to connect with people and her down-to-earth personality that showed her care for each individual she encountered.
