Earlier this month I had the honor of being featured by my Alma Mater, the University of Richmond, via their new Alumni platform Spider Pride. Here's the intro to their piece, which you can find here.

Launching a business is old hat to Carrie Fleck Walters, ’00. She’s always known how to spot a marketable idea and make it sell. Since graduating from Richmond, she’s started her own graphic design and branding business, as well as Blunt Objects, a successful line of products like posters, local artist prints, and a cookbook featuring Richmond-area restaurants.
But, her latest venture, Paper Rose, is by far the most personal. With graphic design, it’s all about using her skills and talents to help clients build their own businesses. But the nearly photo-realistic flowers are completely her creation.

Thanks so much to UR for telling my story and for including me amongst such an impressive set of fellow alumni!
