Raised in the Chicago area, but now residing in Calumet City, IL. Nicolette Chambers graduated in 2010 with a Bachelors Degree in English from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Even though she has a background in writing, she has primarily pursed a career in sales. However, thanks to a random encounter
with a CLC she was able to join the Patch family. Working first as a CLC and now as a contributor has not only given her a chance to renew her sense of passion about writing but also further hone her skills.
