Throughout dental school, she served as a student ambassador for the school, Delta Sigma Delta Scribe, Board member of the Project Smile Foundation, secretary of her class, CMDA treasurer and dental school representative, student research group class representative, and Pre-Dental club mentor. She also participated in multiple other organizations including ASDA, AGD, Orthodontic interest group, Tucker Gold Study Club, Pediatric Dentistry club, RHIG, SPEA, and continued her participation in many of the organizations she was involved in throughout her undergraduate experience. She sought even more volunteer opportunities with the WVARNG, Susan Dew Hoff Memorial Clinic, Special Smiles at the Special Olympics, Give Kids a Smile, and the Ronald McDonald House.

Enns has been interested in working in the field of Dentistry from the time she started high school and is now on her way to achieving this dream. She has a great passion for helping patients understand the importance of a healthy smile, as well as finding the joy in their smile. Having completed dental school, Carlie plans to start an associateship in an underserved community outside of Huntsville, AL. She is interested in bringing dental care to those in need and believes that the Rural Community Health Scholars program has allowed her to learn more about how best to serve rural and underserved communities as a Dentist.
