Megan competed in the Miss Texas Pageant and was third runner-up to Miss Texas in 2002 and 2003. She also won top interview, swimsuit, and non-finalist talent awards as a classical pianist. As a local titleholder, she took her school platform, Adoption: The Positive Option, into schools across the state of Texas. This platform was and still is very close to her heart, having been born in South Korea and adopted by an American family at the age of five months. In 2001, she was invited to Washington, DC where she was a guest at President Bush's President's Dinner.
Megan felt empowered and her life was forever changed by her participation in the Miss America Program. She used her scholarship money from competing at Miss Texas to earn a Bachelor of Music degree from Stephen F. Austin State University where she studied piano under the direction of Dr. Andrew Parr. She furthered her education by earning a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Colorado Christian University. Megan taught elementary music in Texas and Colorado public schools for six years before opening her private piano studio, Cain Piano Studio in Colorado Springs.
A 15-year Colorado resident, Megan lives in Colorado Springs with her husband, Jason, and their two children: son, Caleb Michael and daughter, Quinn. Megan serves as a volunteer with The Exodus Road, an organization that rescues women and children from human trafficking. She is an active member in her church and loves spending quality family time at their home in Colorado Springs and their mountain house in Granby Ranch.
