Larrubia produced numerous high-impact stories as an investigative reporter for the Los Angeles Times during her 12 years there. She covered courts, labor and county government, among other topics. Her reporting led to arrests, indictments and investigations of various players for violating the public trust or taking advantage of vulnerable people.

Larrubia's work has garnered a dozen national journalism awards, including the Scripps Howard National Journalism Award for Investigative reporting, the Associated Press Managing Editors Public Service Award, the Livingston Award for Young Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists Award.
A graduate of the University of South Florida, Larrubia started her reporting career at El Nuevo Herald in Miami, where she was a reporter and consumer columnist writing in Spanish and English. She covered police and courts for the Sun-Sentinel in South Florida.
She was a John S. Knight Fellow at Stanford University and is a lecturer at Occidental College in Eagle Rock.
