Malyssa Collins



With an international background, speaking various languages and acquiring several degrees, Malyssa Collins has a twenty-plus-year professional history in the corporate sector in information technology, business development, entrepreneurship, recruitment, non-profit, consulting, mentoring, and education. That history, being a foreign woman of color and surviving a multitude of career roadblocks has inspired her to aid others from all walks of life with their career goals and aspirations.

Whether it is youth just starting a career out of high school or college, veterans who are transitioning from military life to civilian life, those of middle age who are focused on an upward career trajectory or simply re-entering the workforce, Malyssa has exceptional outcomes as her focus is to bring solutions to overcoming barriers of insufficient skills or education by providing career readiness and workforce development training and outreach. Starting her mission with youth back in 2013 being contracted with non-profit organizations such as Youth Career Connect (YCC) and currently with the Wilderness Education Project, her overall desire is to positively impact and bring change, especially empowering those who are underserved and underprivileged so that they may be able to equally compete for opportunities, reach their goals and fulfill their dreams.
