RMS Design is a resource for local owners and contractors to create unique design plans, specific to their needs, while considering elements of intention and strategy. We provide a skill set for design consultation, graphic representations, and CADD digital drawings, to provide service and mediation between client and contractor at a reasonable cost. We do this in hope our local new construction will consider factors of design that make a building unique, personal, and functional to each individual. We facilitate preliminary design elements with owners and provide a complete construction set in coordination with building contractors.


I am Robin Mae Schick.


I proudly live in Colonial Beach, VA along with 3 generations of my family.  I am actively involved in my community as the liaison to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Co-Coordinator of our local Clean the Bay Day.  I am the current Vice-Mayor of the Town of Colonial Beach, served as Chairperson on the Colonial Beach Planning Commission 2015-2017, and volunteer for the Chamber of Commerce.


I graduated with honors in 2008 from University of Virginia with a degree in Architecture.  I gained experience in commercial design with work on the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, VA and residential high end design in Boston, Massachusetts.


After school I joined the United States Peace Corps as a Municipal Development Volunteer in Jocotan, Guatemala.  I was the Project Manager for their new public library, a village sanitation project, and a leadership youth group for the local orphanage among other municipal development projects.


Upon return from Guatemala, I returned to the construction trade in 2011 as the Chief Estimator for a construction sub-contractor for large commercial retail. I evaluated project designs & specifications to procure contracts nationwide.   I started RMS Design LLC in the meantime and went full-time in 2014.


I design residential homes, mixed use buildings, facade project designs for revitalization, consult for real estate agents, and have worked jointly with the commercial Architectural Firms of John Burger, Bill Tucker, & Sabina Weitzman in Fredericksburg, VA.

I am Erin M. South.

I, too, live in Colonial Beach with my husband Jeremy and dog Marion. I graduated with honors in 2015 from James Madison University with a degree in Architectural Design. I gained my first few years of experience working with James O. McGhee Architects P.C. in Fredericksburg, Va. I am blessed to be working for Robin here at RMS Design growing my knowledge and design style more every day. My official job title is CAD & Design Technician, but I help Robin with other aspects of the job as well. I work on residential, mixed-use, and municipal project designs.
