Ramos is a proud Latina who has spent decades advancing Latinas and empowering them to achieve career and leadership success. As a first-generation Latina and the first in her family to graduate from high school, Ramos went on to earn a bachelor of science in Economics and Business Administration at Saint Mary's College with a double major in Spanish, and a juris doctor from the University of Notre Dame Law School. She has more than 20 years of experience in executive coaching, leadership development, career consulting, and workshop facilitation. 

A sought-after group facilitator, keynote speaker, and panelist, Ramos is known for bringing positive energy and creating safe spaces for people to be vulnerable, transparent, honest, and empathetic. She provides one-on-one coaching, group coaching, team building, conflict resolution, and retreats to organizations that wish to build strong, effective teams.

Ramos is a world traveler, having traveled to over 15 countries while living in Mexico and England. She loves to speak Spanish and train on cross-cultural skills to support organizations in creating diverse and inclusive cultures that result in achieving business objectives such as recruiting, retaining, and promoting diverse talent.
