As a writer and journalist, my expertise lies in covering international current events, world and local politics, and arts and culture issues. Currently, I’m a staff writer for the Providence Business News where I cover education, nonprofits and philanthropy, hospitality and tourism, and workforce development.

In my tenure at PBN, I have covered Rhode Island’s independent bookstore industry, immigrant business owners, award-winning chefs and much more.

I received a master’s degree in international journalism from Cardiff University in 2015 and graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2010. All FlashGowdey blog posts categorized as ‘a la Cardiff‘ chronicle my time spent living in the Welsh capital, Cardiff.
