About - Liv by Viv Skip to content


I’m Dr.Vivian Rodriguez, an educational psychologist, blogger, educator, and coach who loves to talk about life, style, creating, and mental health.

I started blogging in 2016, right after my 40th birthday, then launched a podcast to create a space to talk about style and substance. To talk about the complexities of being a woman who is authentic and thriving! Let’s do this! 

Here's My Deal

I’m a Educational Psychologist with decades of experience working with youth and mental health. I got lucky and get to do what I love! 

I built my brand while I juggled a full time job, having a tight budget, being a mom & wife, and earning a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. That makes me Dr.V, hehehe, just kidding… but not really-it was hard work people!

It’s my belief that we can be multi-faceted and blend substance with style. All with joy, of course. I drink A LOT of coffee and like to go for a run. 

I am a bilingual Spanish speaking Dominican American, an Afrolatina. I am both Black and Latina and wouldn’t have it any other way. Es parte de lo que soy!

I live in the Greater Los Angeles area with my husband and two kids. I’m not perfect or preachy, just trying like everyone else. I’m so glad you are here!

I also have a podcast, Don’t Mix In, where we talk about all things life, style, creating and mental health.
