Megan Carroll
Megan Carroll is a junior journalism major and interdisciplinary arts minor — which combines her passions for music, theater and dance — at Gonzaga University. Her journalism experience includes news editing and writing for The Gonzaga Bulletin, news feature writing for the Gonzaga University News Service and freelance feature writing with local daily The Spokesman-Review. Megan also serves as the public relations representative for The Gonzaga Dance Council and Boundless Dance Club on campus, and taught free lyrical ballet classes to students for several semesters. When she is not writing, Megan enjoys singing during Gonzaga Women's Chorus rehearsals and weekly vocal lessons, dancing, and weight training. A Las Vegas native and avid hiker, she enjoys the beautiful scenery and different climate in Spokane. She worshipped in the evangelical Christian church throughout most of her life, but recently embedded herself within the Catholic tradition. However, discussions of interreligious dialogue and religious pluralism have led her to many religion reporting passion projects.
