Meet Kay Hamer

Kay Hamer is the owner of Hamer the Framer

One of the things that Kay Hamer most appreciates about living in a small town like Kitimat is being able to walk down the street and recognize people. It offers a sense of security and familiarity that can’t be found in a big city. Kay adds that the people of Kitimat are especially extraordinary, helpful and kind and willing to lend a hand when it is needed. She notes that there is much community spirit in Kitimat, a place that is intentional about including people from all backgrounds and walks of life. “I love Kitimat and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else,” she says.

Kay admits that her framing business was really more of a hobby that got out of hand. She’s been doing it since 1999 and it never gets boring. There is something about taking something beautiful and meaningful and creating a one-of-a-kind frame to display it and make it a forever memento that her customers are proud to own and show off.

Having her own business has other advantages, too, over a traditional career. Kay likes that she has control over her work schedule and the flexibility to work around other things in her life that are important. Of great importance to Kay is spending time with her grandchildren, something she does at every chance.
