Prior to establishing the Civilian Corrections Academy, Constantine was a Health Services Manager on Rikers Island and served as Health Services Administrator II for Connecticut Department of Corrections. She has almost two decades of correctional and human resource management experience, holding a Masters in Public Health from Long Island University; an Executive Masters in Business Administration and an Advanced Business Certificate in Human Resource Management from the University of Connecticut; and a Diversity and Inclusion Certificate from Cornell University.
Throughout Constantine's correctional career she has been able to establish trusting partnerships with custody leaderships at all levels; working closely on many significant operational events and investigations. Constantine has lead a number of small and large teams, always leveraging the collective intelligence to make more inclusive and informed decisions.
Constantine decided to diversify; taking on a role in the aerospace industry where she manages the operator relationship throughout their contract life cycle. She quickly discovered that although her skills were transferable her heart was in Corrections and she missed her contributions to the lives and careers of the civilian workforce. In 2018, Constantine established Civilian Corrections Academy, a subsidiary of Alleyne & Co. LLC. The Academy offers organizations and their employees consultancy, pre-boarding and in-service training, mentoring and career planning services; filling the knowledge gap and making for a safer environment and an increasingly dependable collective intelligence.
Because succession planning is key to sustainability Constantine has taken her passion to Monroe College where she serves as a Criminal Justice Professor; training the next generation of civilian employees. Today, she proudly sits on the Middle Atlantic States Correctional Association (M.A.S.C.A.) Board of Trustees, continuously monitoring the correctional landscape and positioning herself to better serve the industry.
