During her time in Bakersfield, she covered local government, crime trends throughout the county, California's major wildfires, and education policies. She told stories of the pulse of Latino culture in Kern County, including an Emmy-nominated story about civil rights activist Dolores Huerta being recognized with her own holiday in California.
Alyssa began her career in journalism at KFBB in Helena, Montana, reporting for TV stations across the Treasure State from the Capitol. In Montana, she covered prominent court trials, elections, policies from the governor's office, and the state's legislative session.
