Early life and family
Liana Ramirez (Brackett) was born on 7 July 1986, in Temecula, California USA, so under the sign of Cancer, and holding American nationality. Her family later moved to Portland, Oregon as her father was offered work there. It is known that her ethnicity is half Mexican, and she tries hard to improve her Spanish speaking skills. From her early years, Liana has liked to pose in front of the cameras, and even her kindergarten profile photo looks like modeling work.
However, Liana dreamt of another profession: when she was seven years old, she dreamt of becoming an astronaut; she shared one of her pictures she drew for her school home task depicting Apollo 11, stars and planets, admitting that her dream lasted for a few years until she realized that she was afraid of heights.
When in high school, she wore braces on both rows of teeth, and was often anxious about that; when it was time to remove them, Liana decided to retain the lower row for a bit longer as she understood that she needed them to make her smile even more beautiful, so she overcame the anxiety and fear of wearing braces.
Little is known about Liana’s parents, as she shared their pictures a couple of times on her Instagram account but never exposed details, only sharing her gratefulness for all the love and support they gave to her and her younger sister, whose name is also unknown. It is only known that her mother’s name is Alisia Ramirez.
After her matriculation from her local high school in Portland in 2005, Liana entered the University of California, graduating in 2009 with a BA in Atmospheric Science and Meteorology.

By the end of 2015 she left the National Weather Service to start working at FOX 12, also located in Portland.
However, her presence there lasted for less than a year, as in October 2016 she left to start working for The Weather Channel in Atlanta, where she took the role of on-camera meteorologist; she’s still working there, enjoying the company of her colleagues Paul Goodloe, Matt Reagan and Felicia Combs; one can see her in the weekend morning show called “Weekend Recharge”. She is also covering the devastation of Hurricane Dorian, which is close to Cat 5 as of September 2019.
During her meteorologist career, Liana has several awards for her personal outstanding forecasting, and her working in the team at the National Weather Service.
Liana has never thought about participating in any pageant, however, this thought came to her mind after attending the conference “Firewalker” hosted by Tony Robbins in 2017. She was so inspired to discover other sides of her talents, so she signed for the Mrs Georgia America in 2018 and won it! In terms of her Beauty Queen duties she volunteered many times for various foundations and nonprofit organizations such as “Big Brothers Big Sisters”, “the Women’s Community Kitchen” and many others. In 2019 she passed her crown to Sabrina Ann Frawley Zielinski, who won Mrs. Georgia America title this year, congratulating her and wishing her good luck on her reign.

Not much is known about her husband except that he is the president of “Linguava Services”, the company providing premium translation and interpreter services. While David is a professional and certified Spanish interpreter, he is also a Flamenco guitar player.
