Meet the Team
As Proximo’s CMO, Makenna is the glue of the Proximo team, managing projects with effortless grace. She makes sure the team is on track, that our clients couldn’t be happier, and oversees all of Proximo’s departments. To relax and concentrate while working, she loves a good iced coffee, running her essential oil diffuser, and playing her favorite Native American music playlist. For fun, Makenna loves a good beach day, her dogs, live music, Chick-fil-a, and shopping at TJMaxx.
Olivia serves as an Executive Assistant at Proximo, handling scheduling, various administrative tasks, and is a pro at making sure that projects meet their deadlines. Cold brew coffee, walks outside, and snacks help her stay productive throughout her day.

Content Director, Emily Lamothe, is the wizard of all things written here at Proximo. She brings an extensive background in technical writing and content marketing to our team, and specializes in connecting with each client’s unique voice to bring authenticity to their written content. With a good Spotify playlist (must include oldies) and a fresh cup of dandelion tea, Emily can happily write for hours.
