Dr. Kristy Crews – Chemical/Biological


Dr. Kristy Crews
Dr. Kristy Crews, Ph.D.
Chemist/Fate Scientist
US Environmental Protection Agency

“When becoming a chemist or scientist in general, you have a lot of flexibility as far as the areas that you can enter because chemistry is everywhere.  Even when you’re in the kitchen cooking there’s chemistry present. I like the versatility as far as jobs and collaboration.”


Dr. Crews continues her passion for chemistry through philanthropic work with local public schools and other science events in the Washington D.C. area; including, but not limited to science demonstrations, serving as a judge at science fairs, and providing tutorial services for the youth in math and science.

Dr. Crews is a chemist at the United States Environmental Protection Agency in the Office Pesticide Programs where she evaluates the environmental fate of pesticides for purpose of registration within the U.S.  She also serves on the Board of Managers for the Chemical Society of Washington (CSW), which is the local chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS).

As a minority herself, she noticed gaps and disparities that needed to be addressed in health, science, technology, engineering, agriculture, and math. These endeavors have taken Dr. Crews down the path to start a non-profit organization, “STEAMing Towards Health”, in hopes that she can bridge those gaps for underrepresented groups, get them excited about STEM and help them realize, “You too, are scientists!”
