Anne Constant (M.Ed. ’72, Ed.D ’79 English Ed) says, “I took a different path from my classmates at U.Va. and used my Ed.D. as a management consultant. It was excellent training for conveying information and skills in a business environment, including sales force training and major account selling. I retired from Ernst & Young and fulfilled a dream of opening my own fitness center for women, where I teach classes and manage a center that supports women in attaining a health lifestyle–both inside and out!”
