About Deborah Constantine

Dr. Constantine is a transplant from New York by way of Seabrook, Maryland and Miami, Florida. She is married to Edward and they have two adult sons, Adam and Paul. Her chosen profession is also her passion and the fulfillment of a childhood dream in which she fully embraces the APTA vision statement, “Transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience.”

She earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2016 and as a Board Certified Geriatric Clinical Specialist, she applies her skill and expertise by conducting presentations, educational sessions and courses on various topics related to older adults. Her newest clinical interests for the elderly of all activity levels include Fall Prevention Awareness and Intervention as well as Posture Awareness. As part of her vision to impact older adults, she started a Geriatric Student Interest Group where physical therapy students have the opportunity to interact with and educate older adults in the community. In an effort to remain current and relevant in the clinical realm, she additionally works part time as a practicing clinician in Home Health and in Outpatient physical therapy.

When not teaching Geriatric content in the Doctoral Program at Campbell University, Dr. Constantine enjoys reading, watching college sports and mentoring young women to accomplish their goals and dreams. She attempts to use every opportunity to minister to others believing in her favorite verse, “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
