Yas! Tell me More!

sounds like my

Yup! That's me!

Are you disillusioned with the status quo of being human-centered in the UX & Tech Industry?

Have you ever had a workplace experience that you would describe as traumatic?

Are you interested in helping the UX & Tech Industry live up to its ideals of empathy and inclusion? 

 Want to be a part of a 5-week dynamic learning experience that includes a supportive community of people you can safely grow with?

Want to build a life-changing foundation for becoming more human-centered through a self-paced course?

Want to learn how to overcome unspoken hardships in the workplace and working in capitalistic systems?

Meet the Rest of the Team!

Fellow UX Researcher, Educator, Humanity in Tech Advocate-Warrior, Enneagram 3 and Founder of HmntyCntrd.

Hi, I’m Vivianne Castillo!


I'm a counseling/human service professional who made a career switch into the UX and Tech Industry, recovering-from-corporate-America Black woman, absurdly passionate self-care advocate, resident of the land where the pizza runs deep, adaptable and ambitious pragmatic, and committed to choosing courage over comfort in every facet of my life.

Whew! It's nice to remember that there are many facets of who we are, right? What if we could bring more of that into our work?

My team and I are passionate about leveraging our intersectional expertise across counseling, sociology, business, and design to create unique tools and training that support all the aspects of personal and professional development.

We've worked with professionals from
these companies (and more!)

Here's to choosing to blossom.
