Dr. Melissa Ramsey, MSN, RN, FNP-C

Family Nurse Practitioner

Melissa Ramsey is a native of Maryland and is a graduate of Towson State University. She started her career as a Coronary Care nurse at The University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. She stayed there for seven years, seeing firsthand the effects of poor health. She worked the night shift and often spoke to her patients who were either recovering from a heart attack or waiting for a transplant. Often patients would say, “If I could do life over again, I would have taken better care of my health.”

That’s where her desire to help people reach their health goals began. She became certified as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. She is certified in Body Combat, Body Pump, Body Flow, and Warrior Strength.

Mrs. Ramsey obtained her master's from Bowie State University in 2015 and started working at Doctors Community Hospital as a breast cancer nurse practitioner managing their high-risk program.

In 2020 Get Your Body Back Wellness Center opened its doors to assist patients in their weight loss needs medically. Mrs. Ramsey is a certified injector trained in injectables and body contouring. Patients who come to the center learn how to safely lose 1-2 pounds weekly, learn lifestyle changes, and enjoy pampering services for reaching weight loss milestones.

Mrs. Ramsey is an active member of the American Associations of Nurse Practitioners and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, and Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society.

Melissa is a recently completed Aspen University’s Doctor of Nursing Practice program in leadership in 2023 with a 3.85 GPA.

Melissa lives in Bowie with her 3 children Jubemi, Hilton, and Halle Ramsey. In her spare time, she enjoys training for half and full marathons.
