Erica Hogue lends organizational hand to The Missouri Bar

Erica Hogue has always been a “Type A” personality, so her organizational and multi-tasking skills shine as executive assistant at The Missouri Bar. 

As executive assistant, she assists Executive Director Mischa Buford Epps, The Missouri Bar Board of Governors, and The Missouri Bar Foundation with secretarial work, such as writing expense reports, scheduling meetings, and compiling meeting minutes. 

In this role, Hogue must be organized, flexible, detail oriented, personable, and a master at multi-tasking. She joked that she has lists everywhere – on her phone, at her computer, written down on a notepad, and in her head. 

“That’s something that fits my personality, and those meetings help me meet so many people like judges and lawyers across the state,” she said. 

Before joining The Missouri Bar in June 2021, Hogue was an administrative assistant with the Supreme Court of Missouri for five years. That role helped Hogue gain knowledge about the judiciary, which she applies in her position to this day. She added she also likes how she is able to maintain relationships with people from the Supreme Court of Missouri. 

Even though she is still steadying her feet in this role nearly five months later, Hogue said, she appreciates the hospitality her new coworkers have shown her. 

“Everyone has been very welcoming, and Mischa is great and is super patient,” she said. “So, I really like the people because everyone is nice.” 

Outside of work, Hogue enjoys spending time with her two young sons, participating in sports, and shopping.
