Terry Banks moved west from Pittsburgh, PA for better weather and adventure after graduating from Slippery Rock University. She has over 15 years of experience in operations management, specializing in improving and designing systems in startups and quickly-growing small companies. After years of having success making stuff up, she decided to gain some formal knowledge and earned a CSCP (Certified Supply Chain Professional) certification.
She lives in Oakland with her wife, who grew up in Wisconsin. A Steelers fan by birth, she is now also a Packers fan by marriage. Terry enjoys teaching and learning from her three godsons. Although she sold her motorcycle to make room in the garage for a Tesla, she is a biker at heart. She is an active member of her community and once helped rally neighbors to get 30 trees planted on their block. Terry is also a proud member of the Advisory Council for the City Slicker Farms organization in West Oakland.
