State Representative Ana-Maria Ramos was elected in 2018 to represent House District 102 and re-elected in 2020. Representative Ramos has sat on the Defense & Veterans’ Affairs, Natural Resources, and Juvenile Justice & Family Issues Committees during her time in office.
A Dallas native, she is a wife, mother of two and daughter of immigrants. After having her first child at the age of 15 and dropping out of school, she learned how to advocate for herself early on in life. Against all odds, she returned to school and obtained her GED from Dallas Can Academy. She continued her educational career by enrolling at Eastfield Community College (now Dallas College’s Eastfield Campus) where she received an associate degree. One step closer to having a bachelor's degree, she enrolled at the University of Texas-Arlington and studied communications.
After fostering a love for education through obtaining her BA, she enrolled at the Texas Women's University in 2005 and received a master’s degree in business administration. Shortly after, she enrolled at Southern Methodist University and worked towards getting a Juris Doctorate in hopes of using her law degree to positively impact her community. She currently owns Ramos Law PLLC based in Dallas, Texas, and is a practicing attorney at law.
For the last 20 years, Representative Ramos has worked closely with members of her community on revitalization projects and public health/safety programs. She has obtained grants to help local underprivileged individuals with home improvements and crime reduction measures. Additionally, she has helped increase access to higher education in her community by heading the development of a new campus of El Centro where she acted as the first Executive Director.
