KK Howley, a native Bostonian, freelanced for The Boston Herald, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and other publications before joining the staff of Bloomberg News in 2000 as its first real estate reporter. She was promoted to senior reporter and columnist in 2011 after her coverage of the financial meltdown beat The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal to win the prestigious Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism. Ms. Howley earned her B.A. in journalism from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and spent her post-graduate year volunteering on a newspaper development project in Liberia. In her spare time, she restored a rundown 135-year-old Victorian farmhouse, doing most of the work with her own hands. She also serves as a Girl Scouts troop leader and volunteers for animal causes. She trained her dog, Frankie, rescued in 2015 after being caged for seven years in a Wisconsin puppy mill, to be a therapy animal. The pair now visit hospice patients in the Boston area. "I just drive," she says. "Frankie does the rest."
