(KHNL) -- She's a singer, an actress and a fashion designer. Now Mandy Moore is adding another title to her multiple careers, chairperson of a wellness Web site for women.

Mandy Moore has been in the spotlight since she was 15 years old. She says it's important to find balance in life and that's why she's launched an online community to help women do just that.

"Hey there, this is Mandy Moore, this is upumpit, a place to get together with your friends."

Mandy Moore wants to pump it up. The singer and actress recently launched, a social networking web site that aims to inspire women to manage their lives better.

The site offers a series of diverse challenges to help women pursue their own wellness goals.

"The four key sections of this site are inspiring, express, connect and explore" said Moore.  "And we have four wellness experts with expertise in each field. A yoga instructor, fashion guru, journalist and an author and each of them has sort of tailor made their section of the site."

The 23-year-old says she's had to face a lot of challenges in her life, having recorded five albums, launched a fashion label and starred in a host of films and television shows.

But Moore says she's lucky to have people around to help her out, and that's why she's created this Web site to give life advice and inspiration to women.

"Something that I really want people to take away from it is the sense that we are worthy of finding the time in our day," said Moore.

Women are encouraged to join in by sharing stories and participating in the forums a topics to inspire others.
