During her tenure with the City of St. Louis, Keeton-Moore served as a caseworker with the Department of Human Services for 19 years, an Administrative Assistant III with the Department of Corrections for seven years, and a Probation and Parole Officer with the St. Louis City Municipal Court for the last 10 years of her career.

As a Probation and Parole Officer, Keeton-Moore's focus was assisting the unhoused who came into contact with the Municipal Court, as well as defendants who faced challenges with mental health and substance abuse disorders, and families facing truancy issues. Her career at City Court fully and completely embodied the mission of the Court, to be an engine of civic betterment, to improve safety, to identify and connect those with special needs with services that will improve their lives, to promote quality neighborhoods, and to achieve the goal of racial equity: a state in which race does not predict outcomes.

She leaves a legacy that will be admired, appreciated and respected by her colleagues.

Happy retirement, Phyllis!
