Moore Choices is a business BY a person who loves Moore County FOR the people of Moore County. Having grown up just 30 minutes outside of a large city, I was used to always having a lot to do. When I moved here in December 1999, I had a hard time getting used to small-town life. I didn’t realize what a gem I had in Moore County until years later. This place has grown on me so much that I can’t imagine calling any other place home. THERE IS A LOT TO DO HERE. You just have to find out about it.
That’s why I created Moore Choices in January 2015. I wanted the people of Moore County to have a simple, user-friendly place to discover the huge variety of choices out there for things to do and places to go. Moore Choices isn't just me. It's my husband, Eric, who supports me. It's my two sons who patiently wait while I update the site, go to meetings, and post information. It's Jen (below), who's my right hand woman! And it's the many businesses who have joined me along the way. Without their support, Moore Choices would not exist.

PS Nearly 3 years into my Moore Choices journey, I survived a heart attack in October 2017. It was caused by Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD), a mysterious event with no warning signs and no risk factors. I have since then become an advocate for SCAD, or what I call a "Scadvocate." Doctors don't know much about SCAD, and many health care professionals haven't even heard of it! SCAD is literally a spontaneous tear within the coronary artery wall that causes a blockage to form, cutting off blood supply to the heart. I feel so lucky to be alive! Please visit www.scadresearch.org to find out more about this condition that typically affects healthy women (and some men) with the average age of around 42!
Jennifer Jones joined Moore Choices in August 2018. Jen and her husband, Jason, run a non profit youth soccer organization here in Moore County called 365 Soccer Academy. Jen and Julia met when Jen looked into advertising. Originally from New England, Jen moved to North Carolina in 2007. She has previously worked in the medical field. Jen loves books, coffee, good food and anything sweet. She handles many our Facebook posts and has been continually surprised by the amount of events and things to do in our little community after moving here from the Cary area in 2016.
Holly Lohse joined Moore Choices in October 2019. Holly and Julia first met when their children were in first grade way back in 2008! She moved to North Carolina from Connecticut in 2005 with her 2 children and fell in love with the family atmosphere of The Pines. Holly will never pass up a good cup of coffee, loves a good book, and enjoys time with her family. She helps to keep the Calendar and Upcoming Events up to date with all the Moore County has to offer. Holly also works full time at JD Contractors, LLC, a concrete contracting company that Julia and her husband purchased in March 2019.
