Texas framer ‘took to framing like a fish to water’

Read about the 40-year career of Adela Davis, MCPF, in the January edition of PPFA CONNECT!

Adela says fate played a role in her career. As she walked by a frame shop, a framer inside yelled out her name—turned out to be someone she had met at an art opening. An art major in college, Adela was looking for a job, and the shop was looking to hire.

Adela, who had worked in the building trades, was familiar with the same tools: nail guns, chop saws, measuring devices.

She was hired, took to framing like a fish to water, and has been a successful framer and business owner for four decades!
