Coral Laolagi - Virtual Support Coordinator - MUSE Virtual School

Coral was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, CA. As the youngest of three, Coral followed in her brother and sister’s footsteps by continuing her passion for sports as a dual-sport athlete at Birmingham HS in Van Nuys, CA. In high school, Coral also developed a love for coaching youth basketball in her spare time and it was then that she realized how much she enjoys working with children. After high school, Coral continued her education at California State University, Northridge and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies.

Shortly after graduating, Coral worked as the Apprenticeship Coordinator at Local Union #761 to over 1,000 apprentices. Working for the Local Union made her feel a part of a team again and she was grateful to be given the freedom to establish more efficient ways of tracking and managing apprentice data while implementing her own organizational practices.

In August of 2017, Coral and her boyfriend fully transitioned to eating a plant-based diet after watching the documentary, “What the Health”. Her actions inspired her parents, who followed suit a few weeks later to start their plant-based lifestyle journey as well. In early 2018 Coral was offered a part-time office position at MUSE School, and in July 2018 Coral began working as the Global Task Coordinator for MUSE Global. It has been a blessing for Coral to work for and be a part of a community where the core values align with her own. Coral’s current role is as the Virtual Support Coordinator for MUSE Virtual School and she is committed to supporting all faculty, staff, students, and families with any tech-related issues and beyond. Coral also takes a special interest in the development of the MUSE DEI program by assisting with implementing new discussion topics and readings for the DEI continuing conversations subcommittee and for all staff members of MUSE Virtual School.

Outside of MUSE Coral loves spending time with her fur baby Great Danes, going to the dog beach, taking bike rides, reading, and spending time with her loved ones.
