With salt water running through her veins, Tanya
Maslach became a marine biologist and traveled to oceans, tide pools and marshes around the country after college. Then, during her 2nd professional career as a leadership development coach, she found herself in Hawaii swimming with a fish of a different species: incredibly fast women triathletes. As a collegiate swimmer, she was content doing master’s workouts with them in the evenings, but said no thanks to doing triathlon. Normally not one to bend to peer pressure, Tanya finally relented when her girlfriends promised unconditional support to help her just get out and try one. Eight years, and with the original mindset and inspiration that her girlfriends gifted to her, Tanya founded GOTRIbal, the company was named for the collective power and influence that TRIbes carry. Built on the three things she believes are missing in the world of endurance sports for women; humility, inclusivity and a Nordstrom-like-service orientation, GOTRIbal aims to be the most energizing resource that empowers and connects women endurance athletes around the world.
