Moore was recognized for over 20 years of service on the King Kennedy Community Center Advisory Board. In that role, she helped secure a grant which allowed her to teach young people basic computer skills. She also assisted in fundraising efforts and served as a softball coach.

In addition to her work at the King Kennedy Center, Moore supports the Forever STARS non-profit program that empowers young girls. She has also worked at the College of Nursing for 4 years, and at Kent State University for 26 years.
