It’s not good enough to talk the talk. You’ve gotta walk the walk.
At Proximo, we’re committed to living out the principles and strategies we prescribe for our partnered clients in our own little world. One of the biggest pieces of the puzzle is how we build our team, because our team is your team, right? When you engage Proximo for your marketing needs, your company team is growing, not just by one writer or strategist, but by many designers, creative minds, artists and experts. How we build our team internally is one of the most powerful ways that we support your success.
We invest significant time and resources to cultivate a culture of care within our team, including leadership development training, continuing education and prayerful consideration as to what creative, personal and professional strengths will elevate our overall expertise while also preserving our core values and mission.
Want to take a peek into how we love on our team? Want to see how we prioritize and leverage personality, talent, artistry and quirky creativity for your benefit? Here’s a bit of fun for you! Our team recently crafted a “spirit animal org chart.” Here is who we are…for ourselves, each other, and ultimately, for YOU!
Courtney, CEO and Master Strategist
Social, influencing, optimistic, transformative, joyful, adaptable
The butterfly was a symbol of the soul in early Christianity, considered a miracle of transformation and resurrection. A strong leader who motivates others to believe in the possibility of what can be even when it’s not in sight, the butterfly brings love and light to the room, drawing on unceasing hope and deep belief that anything is possible.
The Sea Turtle
Patient, enduring, growth-filled, healing, wise, beats the odds, peaceful
The sea turtle carries the team on its back, reminding us to go with the flow, settle in for the long journey, and that life is about the journey, not the destination. A turtle’s shell is strong enough to carry the weight of the continent on its back, and with it, their actual home, grounding it wherever it goes, a clear path for others to follow and ride along to success.
Olivia, Executive Administrator
Highly intelligent, friendly, playful, caring, devoted, passionate, ambitious, loyal, instinctive, clear-headed, strong-minded
The wolf functions well in jobs requiring vision and strength of character. No one can get the job done quite as efficiently as the wolf. Only a select few other species exhibit these traits so clearly – educate their young, take care of the injured, thrive in family groups – innate understanding of the value of teamwork.
Emily, Senior Creative Specialist
Friendly, lovable, unique, sensational, motivates others to action
The quokka has their mouth set in a permanent smile, with a genuinely happy nature that is both unique and contagious.

Brave, determined, graceful, inspired, honor-filled, victorious
Eagles have powerful vision. They are fearless, tenacious and fly at high altitudes. Why is this last one important? As T.D. Jakes says “Eagles don’t bother flying low with chickens.” The eagle elevates the team to new heights, challenging those around it to fly higher, aiming for the excellence and freedom that aligns with confident courage and inspired victory.
Cheyenne, Creative Assistant
Power, protection, valor, courage, determination, loyal, motivated

The panther is a powerful asset on a team whose mission helps others to step confidently into their purpose. Their artistry will pour creativity and new ideas into strategy and vision, driven by their deep motivation to protect and loyally serve their team and their clients on their path to new heights.
Disciplined, mindful, just, meticulous, wise, observer, insightful, determined
