May previously worked at Moravian from 2005 through 2010 in several roles including assistant field hockey coach, Blue & Grey Club intern and Assistant Director of the Moravian Fund for Athletics.
"I was attracted to this position at Moravian because it is an amazing opportunity to come back to an NCAA organization and continue to enhance the experience of student-athletes along with being a part of a team to lead an athletic department," May said. "The tradition of success runs deep at Moravian and I know I will be able to still learn and grow as a professional here."

"The Fitness Center is a great facility with much potential," commented May. "In the near future, the cardio machines will be replaced along with a new layout to enhance the function of the Fitness Center. I am also very interested in improving the aesthetics of the facility and add more Moravian College branding to the interior.
"I am confident that the transition from Union County College to Moravian will go smoothly," continued May. "At Union, I was a part of building a successful athletic program and grateful for the skills, experiences, and opportunities that will carry over to help enhance Moravian athletics."
