Our Tribe

We are small but mighty! Like any movement, we’re made up of committed people getting lots of things done in many areas of our lives, work, and communities. We have a broad skill-set to support the many moving parts that it takes for Tribe of Women to grow.

Amy Reeves Robinson

Founder & CEO

Amy has been a business coach with a focus on women for 15 years in the San Francisco Bay Area and Northwest Arkansas. After coaching women entrepreneurs in Pakistan, she was asked to do a TEDx Talk. Although asked to talk about entrepreneurship and her travels, she could not escape the pull to talk about something more foundational and core to how women will succeed in business and life – together. “I Believe in Tribes of Women” became her talk, and the talk became a calling, a movement, and the organization, Tribe of Women.

Now, Amy’s background in everything from legal and banking, to entrepreneurship, strategy, facilitation, and speaking are coming in handy as she navigates the waters of building a company for social good. She hosts the Tribe Talk podcast and travels the country facilitating the vital conversations of Tribe Talk workshops, panels, and groups.

Amy believes in tribes of women, and tribes of all types. She stays connected to her community as a volunteer, advocate, board member, and says yes to as many good works as time and sanity will allow. Amy and her husband, Brent, have three clever children, three fur-baby dogs, and live on the the last little acre of a once-upon-a-time strawberry farm in Northwest Arkansas.

Dr. Loray Mosher

Organizational Strategy & COO

While doing research on programs that support women in business, Loray stumbled across the work of Amy Robinson by way of her TEDx video.  As she read about Amy and the work she was doing she decided they needed to meet – fortunately, they lived in the same town!  Upon their meeting at a local coffee shop, there was an almost instant unity of ideas and even a chemistry their passion as advocates for creating a society of women supporting women.  A few conversations later and Loray locked arms with Amy, coming alongside Tribe of Women to help create educational and instructional pieces and investigate research opportunities as an Operations and Organizational Strategist.

Loray has twenty years of professional experience in education and in the business sector where she has been recognized for her advocacy work on behalf of women in analytical career fields. Loray’s published works have been presented at educational and business conferences in the United States and abroad, and she has been noted to have a positive connection with her audience and an authentic, even humorous, approach to problem solving in today’s challenging business environment.

Loray is pleased to be part of Tribe of Women and looks forward to continued contribution and to promoting the ideal of women supporting women.

Courtney Lawless

Community Development & CMO

Courtney LawlessOne of Courtney’s first friends when moving to the state of Arkansas was Amy. Courtney remembers Amy sharing her vision for Tribe of Women, but back then it was only a dream. Even though their busy lives made it hard for “girl time”, their friendship grew. When Amy told Courtney Tribe of Women was going to become more than a dream, she was excited to be a part of the team.

Courtney has spent the last ten years building and nurturing online communities for major influencer-focused corporate entities. Her strength and passion rests firmly in doing the work to develop strategy for community engagement and business growth.

Courtney is also the mother of a blended family that includes four girls and one boy. She hopes that the future holds a world more equal than today, where all women support all women and bullying becomes a thing of the past. Courtney makes sure she sets an example for her daughters and son by supporting all humans equally and with respect.

Laurie Marshall

Content Designer & Story Collector

When Laurie was approached to help create a plan to introduce Amy Robinson’s vision for Tribe of Women to others, she experienced an immediate intuitive push to say yes. She had encountered “mean girls” in her life and knows the value of having a tribe to turn to. Like Amy, she believes in the power of a supportive group of women supporting other women.

Laurie took a leap at the age of 47 to embark on a career as a freelance writer. She brings over twenty years of administrative, marketing and fundraising experience to her work with Tribe of Women, as well as a passion for connecting and supporting people in her community.

As the mother to two daughters and a son, and the “Nonnie” to a granddaughter, Laurie believes that contributing to a future that supports and encourages young women to thrive is a no-brainer. Her own mother built a successful home-based business for herself in the 1970s, when many women were ridiculed for their budding dreams of equity and independence, and Laurie keeps the hard work her mother did to achieve her goals in mind as she creates her own path.
