Ramkey started her library career in the 4th grade (when she got kicked out of study hall for talking and sent to work in the library) and after college, she worked as a circulation technician before earning a Masters in Library Science from Emory University. She has more than 28 years of federal experience, all of it as a military librarian. She is proud to have been a library technician and considers that experience to be the foundation for her career.
