From the solitary and sterile laboratory environment to the fast-paced and creative world of the culinary arts, Julieta Adauto’s professional career has taken an unconventional path to find where it is today. She Graduated from The University of Texas at El Paso with a degree in Biology, and a minor in Chemistry.
After a trip to visit her brother, who worked as a chef in San Francisco, she moved to San Francisco and enrolled at the California Culinary Academy (now Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts) to become a Pastry Chef.
After graduating from the Academy, she worked at the prestigious Omni Tucson National Resort, working as a pastry chef assistant. Several years later, she found herself back in El Paso. For nearly ten years, Julieta was a pastry chef at local fine dining restaurants and clubs where she was continuously recognized for her outstanding and creative creations. In 2006, she won the title of Pastry Chef of the Year by the Central Region of the American Culinary Federation.
 Julieta decided to enroll in the L’Art du Gateau program at the French Pastry School in Chicago in 2010, to further her education in Pastries.
In 2011 Julieta took on the brave challenge of opening up her own bakery and titled it Orange Peel Pastries, she is devoted to place quality before quantity, and where each cake and pastry she makes is not only a work of art, but tastes as good as it looks.
Julieta has also committed herself to providing her services to local charity functions such as, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Vegan Society of El Paso, and the Rotary Club. She has also been invited to showcase her talents on a larger scale at the annual Taste of El Paso and For the Love of Chocolate events, respectively.
While she runs and operates her shop with no staff, works more than 12 hours a day, and makes her own deliveries, she enjoys the challenge of running her own business, and the creativity she gets to display her talents in the hometown she loves.

Local rock radio station KLAQ (95.5 FM) has maintained and solidified their presence in the Borderland since 1978 and Glenn Garza has been a part of their legacy for the last 18 years.

When he was younger he would tag along after his brother, who was the program director with KLAQ at the time. That started his career aspirations to work in radio. After a stint in Dallas, he returned to El Paso and worked at KLAQ on the Saturday overnights. From there he worked his way up from midnights to evenings, then from evenings to mid-days and went from just a jock to music director then from music director to assistant program director. 
You can listen to him Middays (10a-3p) on 95.5 FM, KLAQ.
