Constance graduated from the Television and Radio Broadcasting Program at Canadore College in 1983. She has 25 years of commercial television writing and producing with Canada’s number 1 privately owned network, CTV. She also wrote and produced a weekly local real estate program in her home city of North Bay, Ontario, Canada. Raised in a very politicized family environment, Constance also has extensive labour relations experience, having held the positions of shop steward, vice-president and president of her television station’s local for more than 10 years. After she departed CTV in 2009, Constance put her marketing background to good use for one of Canada’s largest financial institutions, the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), becoming a top seller within her first year of employment. When presented with an opportunity to live in Morocco, the country of her childhood dreams, and work as a writer and editor for Morocco World News, Constance didn’t hesitate.
