Throughout her career, she has developed and mastered skill sets that have contributed to her success and the success of the organizations she has been affiliated with.

After completing her education and training in India, she moved to California, where she continued her academic career at California State University, Hayward, where she earned her master’s degree in healthcare administration. During her work at Hayward, she entered in her professional career with First Clinical Research, where she quickly developed both her clinical and administrative acumen. After graduation, she worked at a dermatology office, where she was challenged as an administrator to significantly improve the practice's operations side. She exceeded all expectations in that role, focusing on practice management, operations, HR, and marketing.

She then relocated to Florida, where she met the founder and medical director of SaJune, Dr. Sangeeta Pati, and subsequently took on her role with the practice.

GLORIA RANGELOVA, ND

Naturopathic Doctor

Gloria Rangelova studied and graduated with a Naturopathic Doctorate degree from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Prior to that she obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology at the University of California in Santa Cruz. She has done extensive additional training in herbal medicine and homeopathy, the two areas of medicine she is most passionate about. She has trained in and practices pelvic floor therapy and nasal specific therapy.

Gloria’s love of natural medicine stems from growing up in Bulgaria, where natural therapies are used before other more intensive forms of treatment are considered. When she moved to the United States she experienced first hand the effect that poor diet and high stress levels have on health and was amazed by the high incidence of heart disease and cancer in this country. She was inspired to educate people about simple yet effective ways to achieve an optimal state of being.

As Florida has not issued licenses to NDs since 1959, Gloria Rangelova ND is not a licensed ND in Florida. Given her educational training and experience, she works as a regenerative health consultant under Dr. Pati's mentorship for Florida based clients.
