Romy loves the arts and enjoyed studying art and completing creative projects during her high school years. She also has a business appetite that influenced her first to study law at the University of the Witwatersrand in Joburg. She immediately realized that her creative passion was undermined and decided to complete her studies in architecture in Pretoria.
She registered with the South African Council of architects as practitioner and was one of the founder members of Swart & Associates Architects in 2002, after having worked for Blackie Swart Architects from 1992 -1998.
The practice had continued growth of 12 years.
Romy became actively involved in property development and management and now effectively runs businesses that offer great opportunities and financial returns.
She uses her architectural experience within the practice, by offering clients advice with new developments.
Romy enjoys driving her Vespa with her husband, whilst thinking about the next ski-trip with her family. She loves gardening and endurance sports.
