Gender Pronouns: She/her/hers.
As the Community Advocate at the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response, Ramsey is working on creating collaborations between faculty, staff, and students to reduce the incidences of sexual violence on campus. She believes firmly that in order to create an environment in which all people are safe, it is necessary to develop shared language and understandings about the root cause of, scope of, and solutions to the issue of sexual violence. To that effect, Ramsey hopes to work with the Harvard community to explore current social norms and consider ways to incorporate greater inclusiveness.
Because of Ramsey's work as a middle school teacher in the Fruitvale District of Oakland, her work as an administrator of various educational and social justice nonprofits, including a financial literacy AmeriCorps program, and, most recently, her work as a clinical mental health counselor and trauma-informed project designer at a Domestic Violence agency, Ramsey believes it is short-sighted to uncouple the issues of sexual violence from broader issues of intersectionality and limited access to resources. Trained as an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, Ramsey is a firm believer in the importance of taking a holistic approach to all challenges.
When not thinking about issues of social and sexual justice, Ramsey can be found introducing her toddler to climbing, mountain biking, and generally playing outside. She has a deep seeded love of food, music, and snuggling her two dogs.
