Ramirez was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, a popular Mexican beach resort on the Pacific. Sara moved with her mother at age eight to Tierrasanta, in San Diego, CA.

After graduating from the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts in San Diego, California, she graduated from the Juilliard School in New York City, where she refined her skills as an alto singer.

She debuted on Broadway playing Wahzinak in Paul Simon's The Capeman (1998). In 1999, she appeared in The Gershwins' Fascinating Rhythm (1999) and received an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for her role.

Ramirez joined the cast of Grey's Anatomy in a recurring role as Dr. Calliope 'Callie' Torres in the show's second season. For the third season she became a series regular.

On a special Grey's Anatomy-themed episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, she revealed that ABC loved her performance in Spamalot and offered her a role in any ABC show she wanted, and she picked Grey's, of which she was a fan.
