Enjoli has spent a little over 15 years in the US and abroad in the transportation industry in the public and  private sector as a designer and consultant working across the various STEM fields of education,  architecture, engineering, and urban planning. Before joining MoDOT, Enjoli began her transportation career with the University of Kansas-KU On Wheels and TranSystems Corporation simultaneously. She was able to chair the KU On Wheels transit system and work  on a variety of projects spanning from bike/pedestrian, rideshare, bus rapid transit, major light  rail projects, ADA planning and more. Enjoli serves as the current Chief Program Officer for TransitCon. She has served as an adjunct instructor teaching 3D Computer Drafting and a juror for the former ITT Technical Institutes School of Design.

 

Enjoli also served as an instructor for the Nichols Career Center Teaching Interior Design/Decorating, Textiles I, and Intro to Fashion Merchandising.

“I grew up in a small urban area in the middle of the Missouri where transportation continues be a barrier to accessing employment, education, healthcare and every service that people need in the community. As a small child, I would ride the city bus in Kansas City, where my mother would drop me off at the daycare and then head to work downtown. My parents moved to Jefferson City, and even though I watched the school bus drive past my house every morning, I was not within the boundary lines to be eligible. Therefore, I rode the Jefftran 50 East city bus to school every day through high school. Later, I continued my journey on public transit as a student at the University of Kansas where I became more involved as a student senator which helped shaped the formal beginnings of my career.” 

“While growing professionally in my career as a transportation planner, facilities designer, and grants manager, I referenced the material produced by CTAA and NCMM over the years. At the local and state level I always tried to support the goals of NCMM overall “enhancing transportation options for all through coordination and mobility management practices and strategic partnerships.” I am excited and look forward to contributing to the work of the NCMM team. I am excited and look forward to meeting and learning from others as well as assisting in developing diverse mobility options nationwide for their communities.”

When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her family and serving her community.  She is the founder The Black Thumb/The Blue Thumb Garden project, serves on the board of the Ubuntu  Community Garden Project as the Community Planning Consultant and volunteers at the Salvation Army  Shelter/Pantry. Enjoli is also a lifeguard, a local cub scout den leader/pack 20 committee secretary with  the Boy Scouts of America and the Vice President of the Theta Nu Zeta Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority,  Incorporated. She resides in Missouri and is the mother of two children.
