Anne Ramsay is an American actress best known for her role as Lisa Stemple on the television sitcom Mad About You, for which she shared a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Best Ensemble in a Comedy series.

She is also known for her starring role as Nora Underwood on the teen drama television series The Secret Life of the American Teenager, from 2010-2013.

Born and raised in Southern California, Ramsay was inspired by Barbra Streisand's performance in the feature film Funny Girl, which led her to study theatre at UCLA. After graduating with a B.A. degree, she landed her first professional role in an industrial film.

However, it was her work in The Continuum, an acting group of fellow UCLA alumni, which provided her first real break. Their 1987 production of Waiting, which she co-wrote, won the group acclaim and Ramsay an agent.

Ramsay went on to guest star in numerous TV shows, such as the NBC drama A Year in the Life, Booker, Wolf, Hunter, Duet and Star Trek: The Next Generation, among others, including a regular stint on the series Doctor, Doctor, playing a nutty psychiatrist.

She also appeared in Everything to Gain, a motion-picture-for-television for CBS.

Ramsay's feature credits include Class Action with Gene Hackman, Critters 4, The Taste of Hemlock, Unfinished Business and the highly successful A League of Their Own, in which she played the first baseman.

In her spare time, Ramsay enjoys athletics playing beach volleyball.
