Enya served as a Teaching Assistant for her college introductory biology classes for three years. During her Sophomore year of college, Enya had an internship at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Summer Education Research Program (SERP). In this role she assisted an exploratory qualitative study with Dr. Melissa Braaten and observed preservice teachers engaging in practitioner inquiry.
The following summer, she attended an internship at the University of Georgia's Undergraduate Biology Education Research (UBER) program where she studied metacognition in college biology classes with Dr. Julie Stanton.
While attending school at Heidelberg University, she collaborated with Dr. Justin Pruneski and Kaylee Wilburn to develop, present, and publish case studies for Introductory Biology classes at the undergraduate level about Food Labels and HIV.
Enya is helping establish a GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) chapter for Northwest Ohio. She has also helped found Heidelberg University’s first Latinx organization, called Berg Latinx Unidos to help support, celebrate, and educate others on Latinx culture.
