Ms. Mayo retired from the California Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) in 2021 as an information technology developer and consultant after nearly two decades in her position. Based in Sacramento, the DCA is a department within the California Business, Consumer Services, and Housing Agency. Its goal is to serve the best interests of consumers within the state.

During an earlier stage of her career, Ms. Mayo was a video professional in the performing arts sector from 1988 to 1996, responsible for promoting and organizing the visual arts of local and international high-ranking artists. She also garnered recognition for producing news media material for the Finest Asian Music Festival, Sacramento Bee, World Journal – Asian News, Television Channel 3, and Radio News. Additionally, she was credited with presenting grants and awards for numerous traditional instrumental Asian music, martial, classical, and folk dances, and opera and folk songs. A pioneer in the performance space during the 1990s as an Asian-American, Ms. Mayo was among the first to make her presence known after spending many years behind the curtain.

In addition to her paid position, Ms. Mayo frequently volunteered her time as a videographer and fundraiser for local churches, volunteered for the University of California Medical Centers in San Francisco and Sacramento, was a recruiter for community volunteers to work with senior groups, students, business vendors, politicians, and other leaders for nonprofit organizations. She also served as the chief executive officer for the Finest Asian Performing Arts, which received numerous artistic awards. Moreover, Ms. Mayo has held multiple roles in the SEIU Local 1000 for over a decade, including as a past DLC President, vice president, and chief steward.

Among her other professional accomplishments, Ms. Mayo tutored several subjects for grades K-12 for Professional Tutors on a seasonal basis, including mathematics, language arts, and Microsoft applications. Most honorably, she served her country in the U.S. Air Force. Ms. Mayo was a medic for 20 years in the reserves and served during Operation Desert Shield in 1992. Following in her father's footsteps, who not only served as an air pilot in the Air Force to the rank of colonel, he was also very artistic.

A San Francisco State University graduate, Ms. Mayo received a Bachelor of Arts. She also studied at the University of the Pacific, earning a Master of Art in Asian art. Moreover, Ms. Mayo completed online coursework toward a doctorate in psychology counseling.

In light of her success, Ms. Mayo received two Suggestion Awards for her ideas, one from the U.S. Department of the Army in 1989 and one from the U.S. Department of the Air Force in 1996. She also received a Special Award from the Voluntary Bureau in 1997. Among other recognitions, she established the first U.S. Medical Library at the U.S. Air Force Base in 1980. For her performance work, Ms. Mayo was instrumental in the first Asian performing arts organization to be co-sponsored with the Sacramento Symphony to produce the first east/west music program at the Sacramento Convention Center and the San Francisco Hertz Theatre. She attributes her success to her curiosity and desire to continually move forward.
