Ederle Greene Ramirez is a 49-year old Florida wife and mother who has been a banking industry executive for many years. With the banking industry's current situation, it's no wonder Ederle is delighted to launch her business at this time. Ederle is moving a mile a minute these days. She is extremely active on Twitter, with 1,205 loyal followers. She's also involved on nearly every level with issues associated with the draft FDA Globalization Act of 2008.
