In 2009, as Operations Manager for the Patient Care Center, the next two years involved oversight over final construction management and build-outs, install and project finalization for both the PCC and HEC. Ms. Enriquez worked with architects and contractors along with the various firms involved in the two major projects.

In July 2010 Ms. Enriquez joined the College of Dental Medicine as Director of Operations supporting the Dean through financial and human resource management. In this capacity Ms. Enriquez also supports various strategic initiatives to include providing support to Associate Deans and Administrators with budget planning and maintenance, purchasing and project management as well as working directly with the office of Grants and Contracts, managing college grants, contracts and consultancies.
