Carter has reportedly taken a break from her practice after 11 years to look after her daughter, and expand her new business venture, Rucker Roots, a hair care business she launched with her sisters, Ruby Rucker-Cooper and Ione Rucker-Jamison.

In fact, Carter often came up with several DIY hair treatments for her family members and friends. Her primary motive is to become a hair care market innovator and launch products made with natural products straight out of her father’s garden.
In an interview, Carter said about her business venture, “My role in the business is everything. I facilitate the shipments going out and I’m the one who really likes to do the business part of it. I talk to the chemists and the lawyers and I really enjoy that part. My sisters are a little more social and I like to be in control of the business part because I know it’s done right.”
They even have a website which currently has a lot of offers. Carter was also in the reality show Love Thy Sister, which focused on the her and her sister’s lives.
