Previously, Konstantinovsky served as vice president of global talent at Baxter International and in leadership positions at Towers Watson. Additionally, she was an interim chief HR officer at Capital BlueCross.
She graduated from the University of Buenos Aires with a bachelor’s degree in education; then earned a master’s degree from Cornell in higher education and industrial and labor relations.
