Prebble Ramswell

Ramswell earned BA degrees in Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology from the University of Houston, and an MLA from Texas Christian University.  A Texas native, Ramswell accepted a position with the CIA in 2002 and subsequently moved to the Washington, D.C. area to work in counterterrorism.  A collegiate athlete, Ramswell competed as Division I swimmer before also coaching at the D-I and USA Swimming levels. As a coach, she earned a top 5-8% ranking among all coaches in the United States before switching professions.

A move to Destin, FL, led to new opportunities.  In 2014, Ramswell embraced a new challenge: joining a field of eight (including an incumbent and two former Councilmen) in running for Destin City Council.  Topping the polls in her inaugural campaign, Ramswell's successful bid for Councilwoman led to state appointments including Chair of the Florida League of Cities' Growth Management and Economic Affairs Legislative Committee, as well as local appointments to the Okaloosa-Walton Transportation Planning Organization, YMCA Board, and the Okaloosa County Economic Development Council Policy Board.

In July 2014, Ramswell was appointed by then Senate President Don Gaetz to serve on the Board of Directors of the Florida Senate Committee Florida is for Veterans.  Ms. Ramswell has also served on the Board of Directors for organizations including the Junior League of Northern Virginia, Junior League of the Emerald Coast, Montessori Learning Center in Fort Walton Beach, Gulf Swimming, and the Children's Museum of Northern Virginia.  She is an active community volunteer and a proud member of the Destin Rotary Club. She has served as a lead instructor for the Destin Fire Rescue Foundation’s Junior Lifeguard Program since 2010. Ramswell and her husband, Tony, live in Destin with their daughter, Briar.
