Constance Walter

Constance Walter currently serves as the Communications Director for the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF), a world-leading physics laboratory. Constance oversees media and community relations, plans events, works on strategic planning and fundraising, writes articles, and manages a team of incredibly creative people.

She even got to meet one of her childhood science heroes—Buzz Aldrin, who showed up for a tour of SURF. She likes to say she has the best job in the world—and not only because of the Buzz Aldrin thing. It’s challenging, always exciting and she works with people from all walks of life: former miners, scientists and engineers, educators, students and so many others. Going to work every day is a treat for Constance.
