Our Story

At Creative Tribe™, we’re all about helping women meet face-to-face, celebrate common interests, and grow as individuals.

After realizing how hard it is to meet likeminded people and have real conversations, we had the idea to use creativity to make it comfortable and fun for women to connect offline. Goodbye, traditional networking events!

We hosted the first workshop in Tucson in September of 2015 and it's been magic ever since.

Every event is a chance to try something new, make something with your hands and escape your daily routine. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, stay at home mom, artist, or corporate professional – all are welcome!

Meet our Team


Theresa Delaney


Hey there! I'm Theresa, a brand strategist, dog mom and Ravenclaw.

I started Creative Tribe a few months after leaving my 8 to 5 to launch my first business. I was in my early 20s, working from home all day, and I missed being around people. After hovering by the food table at a few networking events, I realized that it's really hard to meet new people and make friends. All of that changed after our first workshop!

CT is all about the women that make up our community. If you're looking for new relationships or just a fun girls' night out, come to a workshop and experience it for yourself!


Gabby Abou-Zeid

Social Media Coordinator

Gabby here, nice to meet you!

As the Social Media Coordinator here at Creative Tribe, I handle the day-to-day ongoings for our social media channels and online community, and love getting to engage with you all!

I'm a Sustainable Communities student at the University of Arizona, cat mom, and Tucson native.

Outside of work and school, you can catch me baking (and eating) sweets, watching home improvement shows, and taking on too many creative projects at once.


Naima Rutlin

Event Producer

Hi! I’m Naima, fan of all things celebration, book lover and #1 auntie!

I am the Event Producer at Creative Tribe which means I work on every stage of the event planning process. I'll be here to help you connect and grow within this community at every event and beyond!

I'm a Tucson-native but have lived all around. Through family and my love of sunshine I have found my way back home to the land of cactus! Along the way, I've learned a few things: balloons are always a good idea, keep a wine opener handy and never forget to pack a swimsuit and a party dress.


Hilari Ross

Studio Event Coordinator

Hey! Hi! Hello! It’s Hilari! I'm here to make your special occasion that more magical. I'm excited to bring unique experiences to your everyday life via studio rentals private workshops tailored to your celebration.

I consider myself a Southwestern Belle. I grew up in Charleston, South Carolina but was born here in Tucson and have been here for over 10 years now. I have a passion for planning and a good theme truly brings me joy.

When someone asks what I do in my spare time, the answer is…go to dinner! I guess you could call me a ‘foodie’ as a good meal with great people is one of my favorite things. But my puppy is up there too!
