When asked to be a celebrity dancer for The Hampton Roads “Dancing with the Stars,” Megin was honored and a bit frightened by the opportunity. She then thought of her illustrious Aunt Marya A. Kennett, New York dance instructor and studio owner who believed, “Dance was life itself” and gained fame for helping injured and pain-ridden dancers, including two-time world champion boxer Evander Holyfield, who was paid to guide him in his stretching, helping keep injuries to a minimum.
Megin has fond memories watching “Dancing with the Stars” with her Grandmother Larissa, who managed to escape Russian communism to find a better life in the US, eventually settling in Roanoke, Virginia after the War. When describing her late Grandmother, Megin explained, “She was the kind of woman with energy that would enliven any room, whether that meant playing the piano, singing to a restaurant full of strangers, telling great stories or dancing in her living room while sipping Champagne”. And Although Megins’ dance lessons were numbered as a child due to competitive sports like swimming and soccer, she is looking forward to taking center stage to celebrate and honor these legendary women in her family who fought to pave a brighter path for her and so many others, while passionately serving their community.
Megin is EVP of Business Development for CO Technologies, a boutique, Managed IT Solutions and Cyber Security Firm, and Co-Founder of K2 Consulting Solutions LLC. When Megin isn’t collaborating on Solutions in Technology or passionately serving her community, she enjoys surfing, gardening and entertaining great friends at her home with her partner and honorable War Veteran, Kasandra Klein and their 2 Black Goldendoodles, Dixon and Ziggy. Megin would like to thank her generous supporters, Nick Wright of Landmark Industries, County Commissioner Mark Forster of Monroe County FLA, and Vic Philleo, Sr. VP of Investments for Waterfront Advisory Group.
