From 1966 to 1971, Ms. May showed science at Kennesaw College, where she was an early client of PCs to educate analytics. In the 1970s, she progressed from collaborator to partner educator of math at Salisbury College. While her significant other, Lee, was a meeting teacher of science at Wake Timberland College in 1980, she filled in as the scholarly software engineer in the PC focus there. Around then, before many individuals had degrees in software engineering, there was a requirement for teachers like Ms. May to show PC programming. In this manner, in 1981, she started instructing both math and software engineering at Salisbury College, and from 1983 to 1985, she filled in as scholarly organizer for the school’s Bureau of PC Administrations.

Next, Ms. May conveyed her experience and aptitudes to NASA, where she has held different positions, for example, PC researcher, programming engineer IV, and programming engineer senior expert.

With NASA, she has had the chance to take a shot at and be a piece of rocket dispatches in The Frozen North, where she encountered temperatures as low as 62 degrees beneath zero. Ms. May especially delighted in flying out to Norway and Kwajalein (Marshall Islands) to bolster rocket dispatches at those spots.

Ms. May, who is a beneficiary of NASA’s Krieger Gather Security Honor, is subsidiary with the Scientific Relationship of America, the American Numerical Society, and American Mensa. She and her better half met in secondary school choir class and have been hitched since 1965. They have two girls.
