Megan is originally from Garland, where she began her dance studies at the age of 5, and started dancing competitively with her dance company at 9.

After high school, Megan was honored to become a member of the Kilgore College Rangerettes, where she was selected as a member of the specialty jazz group (swingsters), and served as a Lieutenant her sophomore year.

Past performances include the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Cotton Bowl, the Marshall Field’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and the Indianapolis 500.

At the end of her sophomore year at Kilgore, Megan auditioned and was selected for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. She was a member of the squad and the elite DCC Show-Group for four years, and was honored by the DCC Staff when she was chosen to be a group leader for two years.
