After her graduation in 1982 Roos worked as an architect, project manager and consultant. Until 1990 she worked on new construction development and urban renewal projects, both utilitarian as well as housing projects. After a period of 3 years abroad (Colombia), she worked for some ten years in the Netherlands as a development manager in urban renewal and area development projects,  serving real estate companies and municipal corporations.

Since 2004 she has been working as an interim manager and process manager in  area development. Some of her projects are specifically aimed at housing and real estate in healthcare. Research and advice have  always been important elements of her projects.

In addition, teaching has often been part of her working career: when she lived in Colombia, she  taught Architecture and Urbanism as a guest lecturer to students at the University Tadeo Lozano in Cartagena; years later she has been teaching Area Development to master students at Delft University of Technology and recently she taught in Bolivia to postdoctoral students at the Architecture Faculty of San Francisco Xavier in Sucre.

Urban planning and urban heritage are important disciplines for her. Roos has been Board member of the BNSP (Association of Dutch Urban Designers and Planners) and she is member of the Supervisory Commission of the study of Heritage and Area Development at the Hogeschool of Utrecht. 

She expanded her professional profile with respect to the Latin American city and culture through a master in Latin American studies at the University of Leiden. In 2017, she completed her master thesis titled: "The transformation of the city in Latin America and the development of tourism. Urban and tourist development of Cartagena ".
