Meet Munzee MunzDay: Teraca

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. To bring back this fun way to introduce team members, here is one of the key members of MHQ! 

Name and Title:

Teraca Oletha Grim, Human Resources and Office Manager (Player name Teraca) pronounced Tuh-ray-suh

Where are you from?

With my eldest daughter, Rhiannon

I was born in Des Moines, Iowa. But I lived in Tucson, AZ from age 8-15, and then Richmond, VA from age 15-18. I then moved to Columbia, MO where I attended Stephens College. I started off as a double major (Dance and Psychology) but after an injury I dropped dance and got a BA in Psychology with a minor in Sociology. I lived in Columbia for 7 years until I got promoted with Target as a Loss Prevention Manager in Edwardsville, IL. I lived in Edwardsville for 2 years and then moved to St. Louis, MO. I lived in St. Louis 3 years until my husband got transferred to Omaha. In which we lived 2 years until finally I ended up in Frisco, Texas and I have been here 13 years now!

My youngest, Genevieve

Tell us about yourself:

I have been married 19 years and have two beautiful girls Rhiannon Louise Grim, 15, and Genevieve Vivian Grim, 10, they both are competitive soccer players and honor roll students. I have one dog Reaper, and three cats… Buddy, Chloe, and Zowie.

What did you do before, and how long have you worked for Munzee?

I have gone back and forth between career roles. I have been a Loss prevention Manager for Target, Lowes, Belk, and Lord and Taylor. I have been a Store Manager for Gymboree, Claire’s, The Children’s Place, Hanna Andersson, American Greetings, and Stride Rite. I started with Munzee July 2016. My role was to help manage the Marketplace and assist Operations Manager at the time. Needless to say my role has changed and evolved in the almost 3 years that I have worked at Munzee.

How did you find Munzee?

I found the Munzee job listing on Craigslist. I had never heard of it before so I was very intrigued. I am still learning how to play this ever-expanding game!

Meet Munzee Munzday: Emma

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. To bring back this fun way to introduce team members, here is one of our latest recruits!

Update: Emma’s player name is violetblonde 🙂

Name and Title:

Emma Polini, Digital Content Creator

Where are you from?

I am from Westfield, NJ, a born and raised East Coast Jersey girl

Cowboys fans, we come in peace.

Tell us about yourself:

I am bilingual (English and poorly accented French). My favorite English word is catalyst, and my favorite French word is témoin. My favorite thing to do is create things out of blank spaces, and I enjoy all forms of writing as well as painting and drawing. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Austin College in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in English, emphasis creative writing, and minors in French and Art. I was fortunate enough to join several honors societies, including Phi Beta Kappa, and I spent several months after graduation in Cannes, France before serving as a Managing Editor of several newspapers for a year and then upgrading big time by joining MHQ. I have a tabby named Cat (after Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and a rescue dog named Henry (after Henry Miller), because I’m that kind of English nerd. My favorite book is Tropic of Capricorn, my favorite author is Haruki Murakami, and my favorite poem is The Waste Land. I consider myself cool because I can recite full passages from it, and that probably tells you a lot about me.

How long have your worked for Munzee?

I joined MHQ this past January, and I get to work next door to the bossman himself! Who knew a 9-5 could be so fun.

How did you find Munzee?

I have been living in McKinney since my summer in France and lucked upon this opportunity. MHQ was looking for a digital content creator to keep up with blog writing, social media, and client relations, and I was seeking to switch career paths.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

I think it’s really important to build a sense of community so that you don’t feel isolated, and I love that Munzee draws together people from all walks of life who share similar interests. Opportunities such as Clan Wars allow players from all around the world to “fight” together on teams, and I love seeing the friendships formed and meeting players who travel all the way to to McKinney to visit us (aka Rob). It’s also exciting to read about player achievements and witness people celebrating each other.

What are some of your other hobbies?

I love to write, and I keep up with fiction and poetry writing, as well as journals. I also keep a weekly blog so that I can discuss social issues, because standing up for human rights is something that is crucial to me. I enjoy oil painting and mixed media art as well, and I also love to exercise. My favorite exercises are jogging and yoga, because I am too uncoordinated for formal sports, but surprisingly graceful on the yoga mat. I also love all animals, even tarantulas, which actually feel like bunny rabbits if you pet them. I especially enjoy rescuing animals and giving them to my friends/family!

Famous last words?

It’s all a dream. (Julia’s last words to Spike)

Check back next week to get to know another member of Team Munzee!

MHQ is moving offices!

We’re excited to announce that Munzee Headquarters is expanding in a big way! We have upgraded our offices to a much larger space which we will be debuting in grand fashion. The new spot is located at 1720 Bray Central Drive – McKinney, TX 75069, a few miles away from our previous offices.

We know everyone will be eager to deploy around our new office, but we have some big plans in store too! A deploy exclusion zone has been placed over the surrounding area, but this will be readjusted in the near future. There is a small physical exclusion zone around the property so we don’t bother the other tenants in the building.

As everyone knows moving can be a bit tiresome, so we are asking that anyone who wants to visit MHQ hold off until May 12th so we can get ourselves in order (exceptions for those who have already contacted us or have plans in place). Worry not though, because we’re doing it big with an open house!

Join Team Munzee in person for the grand opening of our new offices on May 12th from 2-5 PM MHQ. We will have snacks, prizes, a new MHQ grand opening badge, event indicator pin, and many more surprises!

Be sure to let us know you’ll be joining in the fun at https://calendar.munzee.com/NewMHQ/. We know not everyone can make it to TX though, so we will broadcast live on FB for anyone who can’t attend the ceremony!

Stay tuned for more info about the new space, our grand opening and more soon!
