Teia Acker

Marketing Expert and Philanthropist

A native of Savannah, Georgie, Teia Acker Moore has always had a passion for helping others. In 2004, Teia graduated from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Science (Community Health) and a minor in Kinesiology (Exercise Science). While there, she received the President’s List Award for achieving a perfect 4.0 GPA in one semester. Although becoming a physical therapist was a lifelong dream for Teia, she decided to pursue a career in community health after engaging in an internship in the public health sector of a local hospital. It was there that she discovered the essence of helping others and engaging a network of community services into meeting and servicing the needs of its people. With over 17 years in Aspects of Aging – to include serving in leadership (Executive Director/Administrator) for Hospice, Home Health, Skilled Nursing, and Assisted Living, determined to make a significant difference in the business realm, Teia set out to pursue a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from The University of Phoenix. She graduated in the top 10% of her class in December of 2008. In 2013, after corporate downsizing, Teia decided to create a business of her own; one that would not only establish her in the business arena but one that would also enable her to make a difference within her community.

She is the owner of the Savannah-based business Ebony & Ivory Professional Services, LLC where she helped small businesses “GET-NOTICED”. In addition, Teia is the host of the populated podcasts “GET-NOTICED” and “RESILIENT LIVING with Teia” which are currently on 20 stations including Tidal, Spotify, I Heart Radio, and iTunes. In addition, Teia is the CEO and Editor of RESILIENT MAGAZINE – designed to “Impact, Empower, and Outline the resiliency of African American Women”. In her spare time, Teia helps to empower women through her Teia Acker #RESILIENT platform under the title “I AM RESILIENT’.

Teia is married to James L. Moore, Sr. She is the mother of Randolph (15) and Trinity (13).
