Vivianne (she/her) is the Founder and CEO of HmntyCntrd, an award-winning professional growth community supporting UX and Tech professionals in transforming the status quo of what it means to be human-centered in their professional and personal lives through courses, community, and consulting. 

HmntyCntrd was named one of FastCompany’s top 10 most innovative design companies in 2021. Typically, this is an award you have to apply for, but the HmntyCntrd was noticed and nominated by merit alone, an accomplishment in which Vivianne takes incredible pride. 

She brings 8+ years of psychology and research experience spanning multiple contexts, cultures, and industries and her work and opinions have been written about in Slate, Fortune, Huffington Post, Fast Company, ELLE Magazine and has a strong track record influencing executives, educating others on trauma-informed care, and empowering others to challenge the status quo. Vivianne also has international conference speaking experience and was an invited speaker at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit in 2019.

Prior to her career in the UX and Tech Industry, she worked primarily in the arenas of human services and counseling, where she tackled issues like shame, empathy, vulnerability and compassion. She credits my previous experience as a human services professional, her multi-cultural upbringing, and her love for cognitive behavioral psychology as major influences on her approach to consulting, design, and innovation.

At the end of the day, all Vivianne wants to do is to help others be and feel more free and less alone in their work.
