👋🏼 Hi, I’m Cissy.

I’m currently on sabbatical, exploring topics I care deeply about and working on projects that allow me to pursue my truest self-expression.

I also partner with early stage psychological wellness startups on a part-time basis.

If any of these topics resonate, I’d love to hear from you! You can DM me on Twitter.


📍 San Francisco, CA ✍🏼 I write More Myself where I imagine a more psychologically beautiful & resilient future and pave our way there ⏪ Previously, I worked in product & community at Levels and Commonstock // advised startups at GV (Google Ventures) // product at Wellington

Chat & collab with me.

These are the spaces I’m actively exploring and feel most alive for me. If any of these questions resonate with you, let’s chat!

Psychological & human flourishing
  • As humanity transitions to post-scarcity and towards self-actualization, how can we raise the baseline of our collective psychological health from -1 → 0 to 0 → 1?
  • How can we democratize the process of introspection and healing, expanding accessibility beyond the entry point of traditional talk and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) therapy?
  • How do we build sustainable communities that cultivate cultures of agency where anyone can contribute to society in the form of their truest self-expression?
Asian American representation

Over the last few years, the rise in overt racism has shone a light on the implicit microaggressions that many immigrants and minority groups have endured. When societal structures dictate who deserves to assume main character roles, it relegates everyone else to support characters. You can't be what you can't see.

  • How can we cultivate a level of psychological safety for Asian Americans who are taking up space beyond traditional roles & domains?
  • How do we unravel the narratives around what roles Asian Americans play? Whose stories can we elevate?
