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 Tech and Design Industry, recovering Corporate America employee, 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.

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, 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!)

We're one of FastCompany's 2021 Most Innovative Design Companies!
