As the Live Center Anchor on 23ABC's morning show, she followed trending, developing and breaking news stories throughout the morning. Alyssa co-hosted 'Foodie Friday,' which featured local businesses and events throughout Kern County. 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.
She graduated from California State University-Fullerton where she majored in Communications with an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Spanish.
