“That’s Nedra,” we declare, as Nedra Camille Shelton takes us into her world of compassion, fire, and unconventional thinking. “People are just different,” is her mantra. As one of her oldest friends, (since second grade), I have fumed at the very thought that I succumb to this notion of compromise in today’s times. However, this is how Nedra rolls, with confidence and assurance, never wavering. Her home welcomes family, friends, and wide discussions to an array of warmth.
On my last visit to Chicago, style, vision, and insight are what I experienced at Nedra’s home. Garden Spices connected with the juju of her space, and the energy generated by Chicago women from all walks of life – Victorine
The living room captures this assemblage of dynamic women of Chicago. Gathering throughout the house, we filled ourselves with food, wine, champagne. In ceremony, we shared past professions and present passions. The energy was off the chain!
Nedra Camille Shelton recently retired as a Systems Analyst for the University of Chicago Hospitals. She is a mother of two and grandmother of 7. She fills her life with loving family and her social clubs, The Beautiful Sisters and PWN.
