Ramos was born in Juncos, Puerto Rico on August 6, 1960. She completed a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the University of Puerto Rico, with a major as Executive Secretary.
Ramos began her career as Secretary of the Municipal Assembly of Juncos. In 1991, she was appointed as member of the Women's Affair Commission by then Governor Pedro Rosselló.
In 1995, Ramos successfully presented her candidacy to fill a vacant seat in the House of Representatives of Puerto Rico due to the resignation of Representative Jorge L. Navarro Alicea. Ramos was sworn in on March 26, 1996 as a Representative At-large under the New Progressive Party (PNP), becoming the first female from Juncos to occupy the position.
Ramos was officially elected in the 1996 general election, where she was the representative who received the most votes of all 11 winning candidates. In 1997, the Citizen Action Committee of Carolina gave her the Jesús T. Piñero Award. Still, after one term, Ramos was defeated for re-election at the 2000 general election, where she was the candidate with the least votes.
Ramos returned to the House of Representatives in 2004. After being sworn in, she was selected by her party as Majority Whip for that term.
After being reelected in 2008, Ramos was appointed to preside the House Retirement Systems Committee. She was also a member of the House Government, Municipal Affairs, Consumer Affairs, and Education and Cooperativism Committees.
Ramos was reelected for a fourth term in 2012.
