Aside from her experience in government and public service, the lady senator completed her primary and secondary education at St. Scholastica’s College Manila. Nancy obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Tourism at the University of the Philippines-Diliman in 1997.

Born on May 12, 1973, Nancy is married to Jose Benjamin Raymundo Angeles, a businessman. They have four children, namely, Jose Benjamin Jejomar Angeles, 11 years old; Maria Elenita Faustina Angeles, 9; and three-year old twins, Juan Benedicto Adelio Angeles and Juan Benito Alejandro Angeles.

In between performing her roles as wife and mother and her official functions, Nancy has managed to pursue her ardent advocacy for children through her involvement with several charitable organizations.
