May Melehan

May Melehan serves as Director of Coaching Services for Making Waves Foundation’s College & Alumni Program (CAP). She leads the CAP Coaching Services Department which is responsible for providing individual coaching services to students focused on social/emotional wellness, timely graduation, and career readiness. May has been part of the Making Waves community since 2003, where she started as a tutor working in the Making Waves San Francisco Education Program, and was part of the 2013 founding CAP team. Her most recent project within the CAP team was focused on leading a strategic initiative to refine the current coaching model to maximize impact for coaches and Wave-Makers. For May, the most exciting thing about being part of this community so long has been the ability to work with generations of families and Wave-Makers who have come through Making Waves in the past 15 years. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing a student from the fifth grade through their college graduation and entry into the workforce.
