Project Manager Teri Shares Her MoneyGram Journey
For Compliance Project Manager Teri, the road to MoneyGram was inspired by her previous career as a high school teacher. After taking a break from high school education to pursue a career with the federal government, she decided she wanted to teach within a business environment. She’s been a member of our team for 17 years.
“When I read the ad looking for a Training Specialist, the job seemed perfect for me,” she says. “I applied, had an interview, conducted a presentation, had another interview and was then selected for the role. I loved my job, the people I worked with and rolled out some of our largest agents in the United States with our products.”
It was within this Training Specialist role that she met members of the MoneyGram compliance staff in Colorado who piqued her interest after explaining more about their team and what they do. Motivated by what she heard about the compliance team, Teri decided to apply for a Compliance Field Trainer position in 2009, which ended up becoming a Senior Compliance Officer role. By 2017 she moved over to the project management side of things.
Moving around within MoneyGram has proven to be a fulfilling experience for Teri, as she has learned about diverse roles and become more flexible when it comes to where her career can take her.
“I have learned to be open to, expect and accept change,” Teri explains.
Within her current role, she enjoys the daily tasks of creating and revising work instructions and guidance documents, ensuring new Regional Compliance Officer training materials are up-to-date and meeting with leaders on the teams she supports.
Though she is an educator at heart and finds the most joy in training new-hire Regional Compliance Officers, Teri understands that the best teachers are constantly learning, and she applies this philosophy to her MoneyGram career.
“You never stop learning; if you do, you aren’t growing,” she says. “Back when I taught high school, I heard this from one of my mentors and it has stuck with me over the years. It’s true—'you can never know it all!’ Learning is growing and improving.”
