Mai has more than 13 years working in the overseas study i industry in Vietnam. She has sent thousands of Vietnamese students to study in English speaking countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Singapore, and many more.

In her personal time, Mai enjoys taking part in social activities, and helping people in need. She has contributed to the Green Summer campaign in 2001, SeaGames in 2003, as well as other civic events. After having children, her desire to help impoverished children has grown. 

Introduced to Twins For Hope by David Le, she fell in love with the twins immediately, and admires what the Wagners and Kris Chung have done for the Vietnamese children. She consequently joined the Twins for Hope team to become the Vietnamese representative.
