In her free time, Terri enjoys being outdoorsy (hiking, skiing, snorkeling, camping), a foodie, an avid traveler, a cat lover, and a singer (when no one can hear!).

Carroll Rhea


Carroll believes, “Lean can greatly improve any aspect of one’s professional or personal life.” She enjoys solving problems, inspiring others, and making sure everyone feels heard with her approachable and observant style.

Carroll is a Lean Specialist at Collaborative Impact. She has over ten years’ experience in Lean, supply chain logistics, and operations management. Carroll applies her extensive experience across many diverse organizations around the globe. 

Her colleagues have defined Carroll as a highly reliable, deeply perceptive, and considerate colleague who builds long-lasting relationships with her congeniality and strong communication skills.

During her free time, Carroll enjoys staying active outside or at the gym, traveling, listening and dancing (poorly) to several different genres of music, and spending time with her family – including her two little fluffy rescue pups.
