Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area, McCoy first discovered his passion for dance when performing in front of his seventh grade class. Never feeling like he fit in, McCoy shined as a performer and relished the excitement of performing before an audience. McCoy attended John O'Connell High School of Technology in San Francisco with the intent of becoming a mechanic until he realized that dance performance could become his future. While in school, he continued to embrace and expand his love and appreciation of dance, frequenting dance clubs and classes as often as possible.

In 1990, McCoy relocated to Los Angeles, honed his technical training in choreography and got his start in the entertainment industry, dancing and choreographing for Usher, Celine Dion, Snoop Dogg and N'Sync.

She was also cast in the musical "The Ten Commandments" which debuted at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

Perhaps the biggest turning point in her career so far has been the opportunity to perform in the Pussycat Dolls Lounge as a member of the dance troupe's Las Vegas revue.
