Nemtsova was born in Gorky, USSR (now Nizhny Novgorod, Russia) on 26 March 1984 to Russian statesman Boris Nemtsov and part-Tatar investor Raisa Akhmetovna Nemtsova. She graduated from Moscow State Institute of International Relations. Also in Moscow, she reached the "second level" of law studies.
She worked in the radio station Echo of Moscow, and managed her father's website. She later worked as an economic journalist for the Russian TV station RBK, anchoring broadcasts and interviewing representatives from businesses and politicians.
After her father was assassinated in February 2015, Nemtsova advocated for a proper investigation. She received threats, and, for her safety, emigrated in June 2015. Following the conviction of five men in connection with her father's assassination, she said “This was not a full-fledged investigation, but an imitation".
In August 2015, Nemtsova began work as a reporter in the Russian department of the German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle in Bonn.
On 4 August 2015 Nemtsova received the $1.1 million Solidarity Prize in Poland for advocating democracy and human rights.
She received an International Women of Courage Award in 2016.
