Name: Stephanie Gura

Title: Associate

Location: Houston, TX

Bio: I joined Axiom Strategies as an Associate in December of 2019 shortly after returning home to Houston from Hidden Hills, CA. Prior to joining Axiom, I worked as an assistant to a successful energy hedge fund CEO for 8 years. My experience in high-level executive communications led to my current position where my day to day operations include office management, logistics, travel coordination and event coordination.

I also have a passion for volunteer work. In 2015, I aided in establishing a 501(c)(3) to help our local animal shelter and I have been an active volunteer with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo since 2011.

I graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2011 with a degree in Public Relations and Business Administration.

What you do at Axiom/how you serve our clients: I assist Axiom Strategies’ CEO and Director with managing day-to-day company operations, while providing support through a wide range of duties including administrative tasks and research. I am also involved in the coordination and execution of fundraising events for both clients and employees. I’d like to say I rarely have a “normal” routine, which makes my job so exciting! I consider myself to be extremely results-driven and enjoy being given a challenge, so to say that this position has proved to be a perfect fit for me thus far is an understatement!

Fun fact about you: I kind of wanted to keep this a secret so I could use it as a party trick one day with my new coworkers, but I figure this is as good a time as any… I can play the harmonica.

How you got your start with Axiom: When I returned from Hidden Hills, CA last December, I received a call from Jeff’s wife, Missy. Her hair stylist, who also had my previous boss as a client, had recommended that I meet Missy and Jeff. After meeting the Roes, and Axiom’s Director, Margarita, I was hired on as an employee a few weeks later!

Your favorite political figure (past or present) & why: Definitely Ronald Reagan. Not only was he the greatest president of all time by any measure, but on a more personal preference, President Reagan’s class and ability to communicate so effectively isn’t found very often in modern day politics.
