Yacht Account Manager
Romy was born in Jacksonville, Florida and raised in Mentor, Ohio. After graduating Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, she worked for over 9 years as a Cash Manager for a mutual fund firm and an explosives company.
While she always enjoyed traveling, she pursued it in earnest after seeing her first yacht on Lake Erie. Six months after her first encounter, she had moved to Fort Lauderdale and started on her first yacht â€“ the 130′ Palmer Johnson M/Y Unity. After cruising the St Lawrence Seaway and into the Great Lakes, she joined her next boat, the 150′ Delta M/Y Affinity. While on Affinity, she cruised the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Costa Rica, Galapagos Islands and up to Seattle, WA where upon the vessel sold. Eventually she reconvened with her Affinity crew on the soon to be launched Delta M/Y Happy Days and then again on S/Y Independence. For the next two and a half years, she toured the Caribbean, Galapagos Islands, Spain and the America’s Cup, Corsica, Sardinia and Mallorca before making the Atlantic crossing and departing the vessel.
Romy joined International Yacht Collection’s yacht management department in January 2008 and continued there for almost four years.
