She is currently the education manager at GLSEN, a nonprofit organization focused on LGBTQ support in K–12 schools. In her role, Mui creates resources, oversees GLSEN's professional development program, and supports educators and administrators in creating LGBTQ-integrated schools. Mui received her master's degree in education from Bank Street College with a specialization and certification in literacy. She worked for 10 years as an elementary teacher, equity and inclusion director, and LGBTQ coordinator.
