Dr. Nguyen Rangel was raised in Kemah, Texas, and graduated as the valedictorian of her high school class. From there, she continued her education at the University of Texas at Austin, completing both a Bachelors of Arts in Anthropology and a Bachelors of Science in Human Biology. She graduated from the University of Houston-College of Optometry in 2006 and began practicing in Beaumont/Port Arthur area. In September 2008, Hurricane Ike made landfall near the Texas southeast coast, which prompted Dr. Nguyen Rangel to move further inland.

She has worked in several optometric modes of practice including relief, commercial, private and at an academic institution, working alongside ophthalmologists. She enjoys spending time with friends/family/pets, volunteering during Fiesta in April, singing karaoke, and practicing hot yoga.
