After 7 years in banking, she chose to operate her own day care centre, while caring for her own special needs child. She first rose to prominence as head of the North York Parent Assembly and then the Toronto Educational Assembly. Both groups pushed for more funding for education and vigorously opposed the education reforms brought in by then Premier, Mike Harris.
In the 2000 municipal election, she was elected as a school trustee in Don Valley East, ousting the incumbent. The school board endured fierce battles over provincial cuts to education, and Carroll became the leader of the faction of the Board refusing to implement the Harris agenda. She was elected Co-Chair of the Board by her peers in her last year in office. For her activism on behalf of children, she was awarded a Golden Jubilee Medal. On her web page she characterizes herself as "one of Council's brightest newcomers".
In the 2003 municipal election, she decided to run for city council when incumbent Paul Sutherland left to run in the provincial election. Her main opponent was former west-end councillor Rob Davis.
During her first term on council she sat on the Budget Committee and then was elected by her peers to the position of Chair of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee by mid-term.
After the 2006 municipal election she was appointed to sit on Mayor David Miller's Executive Committee and was elected Chair of the Budget Committee. Under the governance procedures of the time, only this chair was elected by a majority vote on council, all other standing committee chairs were appointed by the Mayor.
She was re-elected as a City Councillor in 2010 and in 2014.
In December 2014, she was appointed to the Toronto Police Services Board by chair Alok Mukherjee.
In October 2016, Carroll announced that she is seeking the Liberal Party nomination for the newly formed Don Valley North provincial riding in the next provincial election, expected in June 2018. She did not face a nomination challenge and was appointed as the Liberal candidate by Premier Kathleen Wynne who had served as a Toronto District School Board trustee with Carroll for many years.
