John May, Financial Advisor, is a lifelong educator and environmental activist who brings a global perspective to National Financial Network, New Haven. Working primarily with families and small businesses, he has built a loyal clientele based on his attention to detail and commitment to service.
Originally from Miami, Florida, John began his career as an educator and entrepreneur in Pamplona, Spain. During his seven years living abroad, John provided instruction to local businesspeople and to leaders in Spain’s UN Peacekeeping forces. It was at this time he was selected to be Director of multinational language academy on the French border. Upon returning to America, John continued his work in education by both writing curriculum and teaching Advanced Placement Spanish successfully at two Connecticut High Schools. Seeing the lack of financial literacy among his students and in the community at large, he left the classroom to become a Financial Advisor with aims to educate and help people plan their futures.
John is also fully licensed in Medicare and frequently provides education to people 65 and over. In 2020, spurred by the deep crisis brought on by the COVID pandemic, John ran for State Representative where he argued for greater aid for small businesses and tax relief for Connecticut’s vulnerable populations. John has been able to integrate his passion for environmental and socially conscious causes into his career through education and in his membership in environmental groups in the state. John holds a B.S. in Political Science and an M.A. in Oral Traditions. John met his wife, Sarah while in Spain and they have a daughter currently in High School. He resides in the shoreline town of Clinton.
