The New Hampshire Department of Corrections has named a new warden at the women’s prison in Concord.

Nicole Plante was unanimously confirmed Wednesday by the Executive Council as head of the New Hampshire Correctional Facility for Women, which opened its new 224-bed facility in the Capital City in April 2018 replacing a facility in Goffstown.

Plante began her career as a corrections officer 19 years ago and most recently worked as a major at the women’s prison.

The department of corrections said in a statement Wednesday that supporters of Plante’s confirmation remarked on her dedication to and knowledge of the corrections field.

As warden, Plante plans to continue the advancement of rehabilitative opportunities for incarcerated women with a focus on addressing trauma and enhancing vocational and treatment programming to ensure successful reintegration into society.

Plante will be paid $108,149 annually in her new role.
