Connectvertising Collective

We self-identify as women or non-binary folks who own small businesses that support healing, empowerment, holistic health, community building, creativity, anti-racism, social justice, and ecological well being. We are based in the Pacific Northwest.

We support and lift up other women & non-binary-owned businesses with similar missions. We share each others' offerings with our communities because we  believe in abundance for everyone.

By supporting each other we can all thrive.

Honoring Life Transitions

Nichole Carrubba

In life, we are always transitioning into newness and in a process of becoming. We are earthlings birthed from the cosmic story, our bodies are made up of the elements that surround us, even stardust! This means that evolving is literally a part of our DNA. Moving through life transitions is an ongoing process that invite us into communion with the Earth and her seasons, which are around us and interwoven into our daily lives.
