USP Profile

May Lai
1998 Biology, BS

When May Lai graduated from USciences, Molecular Biology was her passion. Over a decade later, she’s a partner at a platinum franchise of Ameriprise Financial. Why the career change? “I got to a point where I was too comfortable in research, and it wasn’t challenging anymore,” Lai says. So she completed a postgraduate management program at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and embarked on a second career. Lai started working with small business owners on their retirement plans and soon grew into helping them with personal finances. She credits USciences with instilling in her the confidence to make the professional change. “The University taught me to push myself beyond what I thought was possible,” Lai says. “I have no doubt that USciences has helped me set a foundation for a lifetime of learning.”
