Alyssa Wilds forged a career out of serving others while partnering with educational, social services, and corporate entities to improve the quality of life for families in communities much like her native Camden, New Jersey.
In her current role as Senior Manager of Corporate Relations at New Jersey-based Covanta, she can fuse her expertise and passion to lead the company’s community outreach and corporate engagement efforts. Alyssa is also the Co-Chair of Covanta Black Professionals employee resource group and sits on the Board of the Waste to Energy Association.
Outside of work Alyssa enjoys running, hiking, and kayaking with her two children, mentoring Camden’s students, podcasting, ghost writing, and directing SharpSuiters-a program that dresses young men for all of life’s events.
She is a graduate of Rowan and Wilmington Universities, a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., an I AM CAMDEN awardee, a philanthropist, and grant researcher/writer/manager.
In her hometown Alyssa found her purpose. At Covanta, she is able to broaden her reach.
