FOUNDED BY ALY NAUTA IN 2017, WITH A PASSION FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND BRANDING AT THE FOREFRONT.
Similar to our logo, there is a connection point to everything we create. What we know to be true: Without defining a brand, there is no intention and without intention, there is no strategy and without strategy, there is no brand awareness. When you lead from a place of purpose and passion, you foster organic relationships that naturally convert into sustainability and growth.
"BUILDING A PERSONAL BRAND CHANGED MY LIFE."
ALY NAUTA, FOUNDER OF CONNECTIVE CONSULTING
After years of brand building experience, the ownership of a local publication and a background in journalism, Aly decided no one could limit her talent and passion. She left the comfort of a consistent paycheck to start this creative agency over 2 years ago. After a damaging relationship turned divorce, trading in luxury living for a 300 square foot living space, and with a checking account at a number too embarrassing to admit, she had a decision to make. Would she let her circumstances define her? OR...would Aly redefine her circumstances?
She rebuilt her mindset and said no to things that did not serve her. Aly worked through defining her personal brand and, from this, Connective Consulting was born. Within less than 2 months, Connective Consulting had over 10 monthly retained clients and within less than 2 years, has impacted over 65 brands.
Specializing in lifestyle, branding, social strategy and community initiatives, Aly is an expert at activating new concepts and elevating brands through modern technology.

animal-loving, artist mother and conservative Christian pottery-loving, musician father, Alicia’s interests became a melding of the two.
Graphic Design was her educational focus, but her love for photography would ultimately become her career after discovering authentic joy in
When her business, Aesthetiica Photography, moved to Kentucky and skyrocked in 2009, Alicia would go on to photograph over 350 weddings, portrait sessions and events.
