Ramey’s debut season started with four straight wins en route to an 11-9 campaign that included Centennial Conference and ECAC semifinal appearances.

She spent the previous two seasons as the head coach at Denison, where she amassed a 28-8 record. She made a pair of North Coast Athletic Conference tournament appearances, including winning the championship in her debut season. Ramey led the Big Red to an NCAA tournament win in her initial appearance, defeating Adrian 11-10 in double overtime before falling to Centennial Conference (CC)-champion Gettysburg in the second round to finish 15-5 on the year.

For an encore, her Denison team opened this past season with 12 straight wins en route to a 13-3 campaign and another conference tournament appearance.

After a successful playing career in both lacrosse and field hockey at McDaniel and graduating with a degree in exercise science and physical education, Ramey spent a year as a lacrosse coach and physical education teacher at Bedford High School in Bedfordshire, United Kingdom.

Following her oversees experience, Ramey returned to her alma mater as an assistant on the sidelines of both the Green Terror women’s lacrosse and field hockey teams, spending four years on staff before spending one year as an assistant at Bridgewater (Va.) immediately prior to her stint in Granville, Ohio.

As a student-athlete at McDaniel, Ramey was the recipient of McDaniel's Women's Athletic Alumnae Award for the most outstanding senior athlete as a four-year member of the Green Terror field hockey and women's lacrosse teams.

She was twice named to the CC first team in lacrosse and also earned third-team All-America honors from insidelacrosse.com following her senior campaign. She led the squad in goals (40), assists (13), points (53) and caused turnovers (25). An all-region selection after her junior season, Ramey was the team's MVP after pacing the team in ground balls (64) and caused turnovers (30).

During her four years, she amassed 73 goals and 26 assists for 99 points to rank among the all-time leaders in each category. Her 150 career ground balls still ranks fourth all-time while her 76 caused turnovers is third and her 86 draw controls ranks ninth.

On the field hockey squad, she earned the team's most improved player award in 2003. During her four years, she totaled 11 goals and four assists for 26 points.

In addition to her collegiate coaching accomplishments, Ramey has also served as the director for numerous lacrosse camps and presented at various seminars, including three times at the CC’s Snell-Shillingford Coaching Symposium.

In addition, at all three institutions, she has not only coached but also served as an instructor in exercise science.

Highlight of my summer!

The camp truly helped me become a better lacrosse player. The coaches spent a lot of time getting us to understand the techniques and strategies of the game. Sharpening these skills against other quality players makes this camp one of the best.
