She anchors the evening shows on the weekends, and reports three days a week. Her work has taken her all over Texas, from Houston and Galveston and Huntsville, to Austin and Crystal City. She has chased stories all the way to Detroit and Washington D.C. and was the only local reporter to cover the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis of 2011 live from Japan. Adela is also the host of Visions, ABC13's Asian American community affairs show. Throughout her career, she has interviewed a long list of movers and shakers, including President Barack Obama, Adam Clayton of the rock band U2, rocker Alice Cooper, author Amy Tan, a governor and a number of lawmakers like Senators John Cornyn and Debbie Stabenow among others.
She has also run every Chevron Houston Marathon since 2009.
Adela came to Houston from Michigan, where she was the 6pm and 11pm anchor at WILX. Before that, Adela worked in Colorado and Arizona. She's been honored for her work by the Michigan Broadcasters Association, the Associated Press and the Colorado Association of Broadcasters. She is a member of the Asian American Journalists Association.
Adela is also a very proud mother to one creative, talkative, smart daughter. And if she has any time between being a mom and being an anchor/reporter, Adela runs, reads, cooks and pays attention to her family's two rescue cats.
