The Nashville Emerging Leader Awards program is designed to salute Middle Tennessee’s young professionals under the age of 40 for significant accomplishments in their chosen professional field, as well as their commitment and contribution to the community. By celebrating achievement and excellence, the NELAs seek to recognize and honor Nashville-area young professionals. NELAs are given in 15 industry categories, and one Impact Award is given to someone who has displayed outstanding leadership toward the YP demographic. This awards ceremony is presented by the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and YP Nashville.
Our very own Dr. Laurie Carlisle was named a finalist in the Community Service & Nonprofit catagory for the Nashville Emerging Leader Awards. Dr. Carlisle, who is the Cheif Program Officer at Interfaith Dental Clinic has accomplished so much in just the last 3 years. On top of overseeing an 18 person staff here at Interfaith, she is a faculty member for several university dental departments. Carlisle is a member of the American, Tennesse and Nashville Dental Associations and an active volunteer in the community. She works hard everyday to bring smiles to the faces of her staff and patients alike. Congratulations, Dr. Carlisle!
