Megan was born in Kendall Florida but moved to Jupiter, Florida during her early youth. At the age of 5, she began taking dance and tumbling classes which sparked her passion for the arts. Upon her graduation from Jupiter High School, Megan auditioned for Tokyo Disneyland’s only dance show, Once upon a Mouse. She was chosen as a finalist and moved halfway around the world to perform for 7 months. As Megan recalls, “moving to Tokyo was a very uncharacteristic thing for me to do, but in the end, it was one of the best experiences of my life.”
In the fall of 2003, Megan returned to the states with a greater desire to dance so she auditioned to be an Orlando Magic Dancer as well as a Dunking Dancer. By winter of 2004, she was entertaining the troops in Bosnia and Kosovo as an Orlando Magic Dancer. In her 5 seasons, she had traveled to Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Iceland with Armed Forces Entertainment as well as the 2006 and 2007 All Star games, Idonesia and China with the NBA. She was named Team Leader her third season and the Orlando Magic representative for the first and only All Star dance team at the 2007 All Star Game in Las Vegas. In March 2009, she became the in-game arean co-emcee.
While working for the Orlando Magic, Megan attended the University of Central Florida which she graduated with her Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering with a minor in Engineering Leadership. As Miss Florida USA 2010, Megan created the Future Female Scientist Award which is awarded to a female student in the Junior section at each of the 34 Regional Florida Science Fairs as well as the Florida State Science Fair. She hopes to inspire the next generation of female engineers to pursue their passion for math and science.
