Lara Moore

Summary

Hello, my name is Lara Moore.  I am a native Mississippian, and I have called Purvis my home for the last two years.  As the spouse of an active duty military service member, I have worn many hats:  mom, volunteer, teacher, counselor, and so many more.  I am energetic, fast learning, a self starter and work very well with minimal supervision.  I enjoy working within my community and learn new things every day.  My many opportunities have afforded me an enormous amount of learning and working experiences.  I look forward to working with you and helping your organization achieve higher levels of success.

Interest

I enjoy spending time completing outside activities like:  hiking, biking, gardening, fishing, kayaking, and pretty much anything outside.  Education is an important interest in my life.  I greatly enjoy learning new things and trying new things.  It is important to me to spend time with my family while enjoying these many activities.
