Name: Angie Owens

Title: Office Manager

Location: Kansas City, MO

Bio: I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from the University of Missouri with a marketing degree in 2011. Recognizing my exceptional organizational skills and passion for working closely with others, I began my career working as an event coordinator in my hometown. Looking for a change, I moved to Kansas City with my rescue dog, Casi, in 2014. I have been here ever since.

What you do at Axiom/how you serve our clients: I work as the Office Manager at our Kansas City location and facilitate logistics company-wide.  My role is to keep everyone and everything organized so that we can serve our clients in a smooth and timely fashion. I manage and coordinate internal meetings, calls, and events, as well as overseeing external meeting and call scheduling to avoid conflicts.

Fun fact: I almost fainted on stage at a Trump Rally. I, along with a few other coworkers, had the privilege to be on stage at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama where President Trump was speaking. When it was time for his speech, the crowd took a stand, where they would remain throughout the duration. About 45 minutes into the speech, I started to feel the effects of the prolonged standing and bright lights. As one of the younger people on stage, I certainly was not going to be the first to sit down. That was until I became light-headed and my vision started to fade. Luckily, someone noticed and helped me take a seat just in time. Although avoiding fainting, the reminder of my embarrassment will live on through the photographs taken during the event where I can be seen sitting in the shadows behind President Trump.

What lessons have you learned from previous campaign cycles: Before working at Axiom, I had very little experience with politics. This June, I will have been with the company for 5 years. I have learned during that time, and multiple campaign cycles, just how much hard work goes into a successful campaign. Sometimes you have to work fast, but diligent, be flexible with your schedule, and be prepared for the unexpected. It can be very stressful. However, it is all worth it in the end.
