Rosanne Ramos Lloyd is the newest sales agent to join 340 Real Estate Company. Born and raised in Houston Texas, Rosanne started what would become a lifelong Residential Design career with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from the University of Houston in 1997. After five years working as a designer in the office of Natalye Appel + Associates Architects LLC, she left Houston for Rhode Island School of Design to complete her Masters in Industrial Design. After graduating, Rosanne taught in the Undergraduate ID program at RISD and started her own design practice, Inclusion By Design LLC. During her time in Rhode Island, Rosanne was introduced to St. John when she met the owner of Maho Bay Camps, Stanley Selengut, in New York. Stanley’s interest in Rosanne’s work was routed in her commitment inclusive design, and then grew to impact the development, and later renovation, of Concordia Eco-Resort.
Rosanne met her future husband Wayne on St. John in 2004 while working on “Building a Destination for All, 2005;” an awareness raising initiative for the tourism industry to develop an island wide physical infrastructure accessible for all ages and abilities, specifically aging populations and persons with disabilities. In January 2010 Rosanne moved full time to St John, married Wayne and continued her design work.
Rosanne has 23 years of professional experience working directly with homeowners on residential design, construction administration and owner representation. Rosanne is owner of Antares Property & Hospitality LLC, serving St. John homeowners with management and marketing of short-term villa rentals. Subsequently, she and her husband opened Island Host, a full-service concierge located in the Isola Shops Building in Coral Bay.
Since 2005, Rosanne has donated her professional expertise on the Francis Bay Accessible Trail, and Cinnamon Bay Accessible Trail through Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park and has taken commissioned work with FVINP, including a comprehensive accessibility study of the park’s beaches and trail system, as well as a Trail Ratings Project. Rosanne is an active member of FVINP advisory council.
Prior to 340 and Antares, Rosanne was principal of Inclusion By Design LLC, an interdisciplinary design practice committed to creating built environments, products, systems, and graphic information for people across all ages and abilities. Her hands-on, collaborative style of research, analysis, and design is a result of her multidisciplinary training in Architecture and Industrial Design combined with her 23 years of professional experience. Rosanne’s work history is diverse in industry and scope. Her greatest talent is for understanding the multiplicity in human experience and using that knowledge to ensure user-centered solutions. Her capabilities range from lead designer, project manager, and primary consultant to construction administrator.
Under Rosanne’s direction, Inclusion By Design became an established leader in the field of inclusive strategy for both public and private projects. Her passion and commitment to socially responsible and sustainable design remains a significant part of her life’s work. The confidence that is displayed in her work comes from understanding the impact her design will have on people’s lives and receiving that knowledge as an obligation and responsibility to demonstrate discipline and accountability in everything she does. Rosanne has been invited to speak at national and international forums, from Nevada to Florida and from Brazil to Mozambique, about these issues and to showcase her work.
Her gift is in listening and understanding to the wants, needs and tastes of her clients. Her expertise is in knowing how design impacts usability and the satisfaction of each individual client.
