I started #kisscrew as a way to bring chemistry to life! I provide free research-backed tips, techniques, strategies, and products to help you ace your science coursework and stay engaged throughout the process.
I’m a social activist who intends to make the site supportive, applicable, educational, and uplifting to all!

Hi, Dolls! I got my M.S., Chemistry from UC, Berkeley in December 2016. That program was grueling, and even in the historically most progressive city in the U.S. I was unknowingly subjected to some gender discrimination. Upon reflection I realized that many of the challenges I faced could be directly attributed to the gendered socialization I grew up with and how it had given me some significant disadvantages in personal agency and self-promotion. I decided to adopt and integrate new skills and strategies to bridge the gaps I had had in that program.
Now, in the age of #MeToo, I promote and curate the active strategies I use so that you too can overcome the disadvantages often caused by growing up with gendered stereotypes. My hope is that you can use these strategies and tutorials to strengthen your confidence in all things math and science. I’m building a supportive community to lean on as you work through your courses! If you’re feeling discouraged from pursuing STEM careers because you feel that it misaligns with how you view yourself and your lifestyle, this resource is for you!
Together, we will develop the outspoken yet empathetic confidence we need to excel in all things (oh yeah, and science being one of those)!
